Description

Take a journey to Real del Monte and Huasca de Ocampo, 2 towns whose natural beauty and historical relevance earn them each spots on the Mexican Secretariat of Tourism's list of Pueblos Mágicos. Explore their stunning colonial architecture and surrounding basaltic formations on this excursion.

Make your way to either the Hotel Amigo Zócalo or NH Collection Mexico City Reforma for pickup and a relaxing drive into Mexico's beautiful Hidalgo region. Your first stop is Real del Monte, a small mining town located at an altitude of 8,900 feet (2,700 m). Visit the English Cemetery and get to know its curiosities and stories, all told from a 5th-generation local.

Then, go back to Real del Monte’s center and enjoy an ample amount of free time to stroll the city's charming streets and, if you want to, sink your teeth into pulque bread, pastes, and plenty of other delicacies famous throughout the area.

Make your way to the Basaltic Prisms, a collection of towering basalt rock columns lining a ravine that were formed by the slow cooling of volcanic lava. Take some time to admire 4 waterfalls crashing down these magnificent rocks.

Continue to Huasca de Ocampo, nestled at the base of the Sierra de Pachuca Mountains. There’ you’ll visit Santa Maria Regla’s estate. This 18th-century hacienda, or estate, is known for its rich history of mining and agriculture.

Continue to Huasca de Ocampo’s center, where you’ll have time to take pictures, walk around its streets or buy a souvenir, before beginning the drive back to Mexico City, where your experience ends with drop-off at your starting point.
