What makes it magical

This colonial country town in Querétaro has it all: mild weather, pleasantly walkable squares and streets, water parks, handicrafts markets, and museums. As if that wasn’t enough, it also has an entire cheese and wine culinary tradition. Festivals, hot air balloon rides, expert-led wine tastings, and concerts in caves all are sure to make for countless memorable experiences.

Why you should go

The Wine and Cheese Route

  • Its altitude, climate, and terrain make it one of nine perfect grape-growing sites and great for raising fresh dairy livestock.
  • La Redonda and Finca Sala Vivé by Freixenet are two nearby winerieswhere you can learn all about wine.
  • Not only is downtown’s Museo del Queso y del Vino the place to learn all about cheese and wine, you can even purchase some bottles or dine at the museum’s restaurant.

At the very least

Purchase a variety of Néole and La Vaca Feliz cheeses.

Don’t miss

  1. Flying in a hot air balloon at sunrise with an in-the-air tasting.
