You will visit beautiful small towns. To start we will go to Bernal, which is a lovely place with a magical atmosphere and the third largest monolith in the world.
The monolith "Peña de Bernal" is 360 meters high. People say it has a special energy. Besides, the monolith was declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO with other two hills (Cerro del Zamorano and Cerro del Fronton) due to the ancestral tradition of the otomi Indians.
In the wine factory you will learn about the process to make tha wines. You'll also have a tasting of the sparkling wine they make there.
In Cadereyta you will see a baroque style altarpiece covered with gold leave, and the cactus garden, one of the largest collection of cactus in the world.

This was our second tour with Aarón and it was just as wonderful! We truly enjoyed spending the day with him exploring towns in Querétaro, an old hacienda and the botanical garden. His knowledge and expertise made these "Pueblos Mágicos" even more special.
