This is a quaint town several hours away from Mexico City. I went during the week, and it was a great trip, not crowded. Small businesses all around, cool shopping, touristy. The monolith is viewable from all around, but do go close to it to get some better pics! Interesting place to visit. There are some shops where you can... More

We would have never gone here had it not been for our local friends in San Miguel. They drove us here to Bernal to experience a local Mexican town complete with an incredible view of the rock formation that looms over the town. A visit here will get you away from the Gringos and expose you to the local experience... More

La Pena de Bernal is a rock formation, one of the tallest on earth ... the nearby town is a tourist mecca ... quaint shops and cafe's around a lovely manicured plaza ...

While visiting Queretaro with my Fiance, he took me to Bernal because it was where some of his family is from. The town is so beautiful and there is so much culture there. This is definitely a great day trip idea! We didn't walk all the way up but we still got some great views and photographs! Expect to spend... More

We took a one day trip from Queretaro to Bernal. Local bus takes 45 min and costs around 65 pesos per person one way trip. We got there at 11 o'clock in the morning which is a bit too late since sun is very strong already. I strongly recommend to get there at 8, have some breakfast there and then... More

Very nice touristic place, only 40min from Queretaro. You. An hike to the top or just walk down the valley and in the pittoresque village. Many good tacos places. Best to go at sunset where the light on the rock is beautiful.

The town where the Pena is located is small but charming. There's a nice square with lots of shops, food stalls and places to shop. The Pena is beautiful, you can climb and do some hiking but only do it if you have enough experience. If you are not into climbing up, you can wait at the bottom having a... More
