La Pena de Bernal is a rock formation, one of the tallest on earth ... the nearby town is a tourist mecca ... quaint shops and cafe's around a lovely manicured plaza ...

Very nice touristic place, only 40min from Queretaro. You. An hike to the top or just walk down the valley and in the pittoresque village. Many good tacos places. Best to go at sunset where the light on the rock is beautiful.

The Pena is beautiful, you can climb and do some hiking but only do it if you have enough experience. If you are not into climbing up, you can wait at the bottom having a... More
