The Basics

Thanks to its proximity to Monterrey, Villa de Santiago—often known simply as Santiago—is an easy day trip from the city center. Highlights of the town include the Santiago Apostol Church and Santiago History Museum, but most visitors combine a visit to Santiago with hikes to the Horsetail Falls (Cascada Cola de Caballo), catamaran rides on La Boca Dam, and jumps from one of the highest bungee platforms in Mexico. You should also make time to stop in the artisan village of Los Cavazos on your way to Villa de Santiago.

When to Get There

Spring and fall are the best times to visit Villa de Santiago, thanks to Monterrey’s oppressively hot summers and cool winters. Stop by midweek for a quieter experience, as the town’s popularity among locals and travelers alike means it gets incredibly busy on weekends and holidays.
