    If you find a hand-made work of art you like, don’t hesitate to buy it. You’ll find other similar ones, but each one of these works is unique.

  • Travel Green

    Don’t make noise on the way to the monarch butterfly sanctuary because it bothers the butterflies.

    You can get to the monarch butterfly sanctuary on horseback, but because the terrain is quite uneven, we recommend doing it on foot.

  • Follow This Photo Tip

    When you visit the monarch butterfly sanctuary take a camera with a powerful zoom because it’s not easy to get too close to the butterflies.

  • Take a Walk

    Tecozautla is a very safe destination for long walks at night. Take that into account.

    All around the Torreon’s square in Tecozautla there are several ice cream shops. Visit them before taking a promenade around the square.

    On your trip across Copper Canyon, we recommend getting off the train at least in two stations and spending the night in those towns.

    In order to climb up Peña de Bernal you’ll need equipment for medium altitude mountain climbing, comfortable clothes and hiking boots.

    Apart from Peña de Bernal you should also visit the religious constructions in the area. The most popular one is the church of San Sebastian, but we also recommend the chapels of Las Animas and Santa Cruz.

  • Pack According to the Weather

    For your trip to Peña de Bernal pack a hat and sunscreen lotion because there are not many places where you can hide from the sun.

  • Choose the Best Hotel Location

    Reserve a hotel in Oaxaca and travel from there to Santa María del Tule. You’ll get there in a little bit more than half an hour.

    After dark, follow the local tradition of walking along Campeche’s pier while enjoying an ice cream and feeling the sea breeze on your skin.

    In order to enter Tulum take the tram that departs from the ticket office. Even though it doesn’t cover a long distance, it gives you a chance to rest before walking around the archaeological site.

  • Save on Rides

    If you take a cab from your hotel to Tulum, agree on the rate with the taxi driver before getting in the car.

  • Take Cash

    Take cash when you visit Tulum because most restaurants and shops on site or at the entrance don’t accept credit cards.

    Visit the Latinoamericana Tower’s overlook in December and January, two months in which the city skies are clearer.

    Have a coffee at the spinning restaurant of the Latinoamericana Tower at around 6 pm. This way you’ll watch as the city landscape transitions from day to night.

    You can visit the Latinoamericana Tower in a couple of hours, so complement the rest of your day trip with visits to other landmarks such as the Palace of Fine Arts, the Convent of Saint Francis and the Palace of Iturbide.

  • Choose the Best Hour

    Avoid visiting the Cathedral of Puebla on Sundays at noon because at that time they’ll have mass services and you won’t be allowed to visit it leisurely.

  • Plan a Route

    The Cathedral of Puebla is located in the city’s downtown, where you’ll find plenty of other monuments. Plan a route before your trip so that you can visit most of them.

  • Prevent Dehydration

    The water found in a geyser can reach temperatures of 90 degrees. You can only swim in areas that register temperatures lower than 60 degrees. Still, take a bottle of water and drink small sips to avoid dehydration.
