Queretaro travel guide

4.3
Geologic Formations · Landmarks · Wineries & Vineyards
At the very center of Mexico, the tiny state of Queretaro encompasses a range of ecosystems, from arid deserts to tropical rainforests. A trip to Queretaro reveals a compact area once controlled by the powerful Aztec Empire, which now contains mostly small towns, agricultural villages, and family-run ranches. Despite its small size, this state is packed with pleasant surprises, from historically significant sites and wildlife-rich biosphere reserves, to major pre-Columbian ruins. One of the most popular places to visit in Queretaro is La Pena de Bernal, one of the world's tallest and oldest monoliths, formed by natural forces at least 60 million years ago.
