Your To-Do List

What to Bring

  • Sun screen & sun hat (Querétaro is in the mountains; the sun is strong. shade on the hike!)  
  • Warm clothes for the nights and mornings. (Again, mountains. It could be freezing in the morning and warm up to 80 by midday.) 
  • Tennis shoes at a minimum; hiking boots if possible. The hike is not too hard but kind of rocky in parts.  
  • Something to write on (laptop, tablet, or old-fashioned pen and notebook!)  
  • External battery/power bank for your electronics, so you can snap lots of pics without running out of juice!
  • There are ATMs, convenience stores and pharmacies all over the historic center, and if you want you can Uber to the supermarket, Walmart, Costco, Sams, Best Buy, Office Max, Staples, etc in 10 minutes, so no biggie if you need something else.  

Lodging Options

Here are a few options to explore beyond the usual hotels:  

Flying into Mexico City? Here's how to get to Querétaro:

Mexico City has two terminals, but the instructions are the same in both.  

  • Once you get out of baggage claim and through customs, look for signs saying Ground Transportation (it will be in English) and follow those. They are all over the place. They will get you to the airport bus station, which is just part of the airport (you won't go outside).
  • Look for a company called Primera Plus. Ask for the next ticket to Querétaro. The buses leave every 30 minutes, but depending on how busy they are you may have to wait an hour if the next bus is full. Tickets are about $20.00 US and they take credit cards.  
  • When you get to Querétaro (about 3 hours) just call Uber to get to where you are staying. Like in airports, Uber has set pickup points in the bus terminal, so just walk to the right spot. The bus station is not that big, so it should not be a problem.  

One small note for buses: If you check in any bag below it is customary to tip 5-10 pesos to the guy who puts your bag in - and gives you a ticket - and the guy who takes it out. Ray recommends you take out some money in the banks at the airport and then buy something - a pack of gum - just to get some small change before getting on the bus. It is not required, but it is kind of rude not to tip them. You do not tip taxi drivers or Uber drivers in Mexico.
