Full description
Escape the hustle and bustle of Mexico City for the day on a full-day tour of the towns of Hidalgo.

Following a pick-up from a central meeting point in Mexico City, transfer north to the mining town of Real del Monte (Mineral del Monte). Here, you will have approximately 4 hours to explore the streets at leisure. Sample some of the local street food, such as pulque bread, tamales and other examples of Hidalgo cuisine.

Go to the English cemetery, where all the graves are oriented towards England. Enjoy some free time to shop and find some lunch. Then, continue to the Basaltic Prisms of Huasca de Ocampo. Admire the 30-meter tall geometric basalt columns that decorate the walls of the impressive Santa Maria Regla Canyon, where 4 waterfalls feed the San Antonio Regla dam.

See the beautiful 18th-century Hacienda San Miguel Regla, former residence of the mining magnate and philanthropist Pedro Romero de Terreros. See why Huasca de Ocampo is named “Magical Town” (Pueblo Mágico) for its preserved architecture and natural surroundings.

Discover arches that were once part of the courts, and ovens where the silver was extracted on a 2-hour tour of the hacienda, before returning to Mexico City.
