Quaint old restaurants and shops with a relaxed peaceful reflection of old Mexico. A beautiful old church and traditional town square where people sit and talk and rest. If you did not know Santiago was there you might miss it. This kind of town is why people love Mexico because the true heart of a nation can be found here,... More

We enjoyed Sunday morning and went to church at 11 a.m., they have a little handcrafts market on the side of the church where you can buy typical candies and wonder around.

Went there on the first days of November and the whole town had the Dia de Muertos decoration and it was fabulous. The town was packed, the atmosphere was incredible, the food was just amazing. We loved that place!

This is an awsome little town very close from Monterrey area. Santiago has great restaurants and a very romantic downtown, with narrow streets, and great views.

Santiago is a beautiful, colorful and a very clean town. Take a walk around to experience its atmosphere. From downtown there is an access to an area where the sight is spectacular. Both to the mountain ranges and to Presa la Boca.

If you're in Monterrey, Mexico for a few days, try to get to Villa de Santiago, preferably on a Sunday for a taste of Old Mexico. You need to visit the Main Plaza in front of the town's church on the hill. You may be treated to music in the Plaza or a "fair" where venders are selling traditional toys,... More

This is the favorite destination of the Regios (people from Monterrey). Usually it is really crowded during the weekends but it is worth it. It have a great lookout where you can see Presa de la Boca (Boca Damn) and part of the town. It has a little plaza and a lovely church. It has a lovely architecture all around... More

This is a small beautiful town about half an hour away from Monterrey, with a nice square and streets but specially good food, you should totally visit for the morning if you have time in Monterrey.
