Take a journey to Real del Monte and Huasca de Ocampo, 2 towns whose natural beauty and historical relevance earn them each spots on the Mexican Secretariat of Tourism's list of Pueblos Mágicos. Explore their stunning colonial architecture and surrounding basaltic formations on this tour.
Your first stop is Real del Monte, a small mining town located at an altitude of 8,900 feet (2,700 m). There you'll have a guided tour on the center of the town, where you'll learn about the colonial times, their gastronomy, etc. Enjoy free time to stroll the city's charming streets and, if you want, sink your teeth into pulque bread, pastes, and plenty of other delicacies famous in the area.
Then head to the Basaltic Prisms, a collection of towering basalt rock columns lining a ravine that were formed by the cooling of volcanic lava. Take time to admire its 4 waterfalls.
Continue to Huasca de Ocampo, where you’ll have time to take pictures and walk around its streets.
Round-trip transfer (if you select the private tour, hotel pick is included)
