Situated on the northeastern side of Mexico in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Oriental mountains, Monterrey is one of Mexico's most popular tourist destinations. It's very different to other Mexican metropolises that travelers frequent, with its sprawling suburbs, world-class museums, and rugged mountain backdrop. Monterrey occupies some of the most desirable real estate in all of Mexico and it's no wonder the area is so appealing to travelers—you'll definitely feel like you've discovered a hidden secret. Flights to Monterrey land at the Monterrey International Airport (MTY), which is just outside the city. Once you've arrived in town, you'll find that the scenery is spectacular and the city is easily accessible, with endless things to see, including beautiful architecture, the stunning Barrio Antiguo, and local boutiques and cafes.
Getting to and from Monterrey International Airport is easy. Once you've booked your Monterrey flights, you can either arrange a taxi from one of the multiple taxicab companies or you can schedule a rental car—which might come in handy while you're exploring the area. The drive into the city center takes about a half hour. You can also look into the Skybus Express Bus Service for a ride into town, and many hotels in Monterrey are happy to arrange shuttle service from the airport. Once you've gotten settled in your room, you can let the exploration begin! You can find fantastic outdoor adventure sports here as well as giant, eclectic shopping malls in areas like San Pedro Garza Garcia.
Monterrey is home to the Gran Plaza, a series of interconnected squares that make convenient meeting places for residents—much like Italian piazzas. You can start your day here and then check out the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, one of the greatest collections of contemporary art in Mexico.
