Real del Monte and Basaltic Prisms Tour

Modalities

When booking you can choose between two different options. Both have a departure time of 7:40 am and include transport in a minibus and an English speaking guide. Below you can see the differences:

6 hour tour

We'll meet on Chapultepec Avenue in Mexico City and we'll set off to the Basaltic Prisms, curious hexagonal rock formations that can reach 30 metres in height. As if this wasn't enough, the landscape is completed by four impressive waterfalls that are fed by the San Antonio dam - a unique sight!

Afterwards, we'll go on to the Magical Royal Village of El Monte, which you can visit on your own while exploring its picturesque streets. One of its main attractions is the church of Nuestra Señora del Rosario, a building that has been standing since the 16th century. 

10 hour tour

We'll leave Mexico City in the direction of the Basaltic Prisms, and then we'll approach the first Magic Town in the state of Hidalgo: Huasca de Ocampo. There we'll be able to investigate its beautiful colonial constructions, the exhausted ones and get to know the legends of the goblins. We'll have the opportunity to see the best views of the area by stopping at the Peña del Aire viewpoint.

We'll continue the tour until we reach the water park Bosque de las Truchas, where you'll be able to do some of the activities offered by the locals on your own. Then we'll travel to Real del Monte, where we'll make a visit on foot and, later, we'll visit the Museum of the Paste of Mineral del Monte. Did you know that the paste is a symbol of the gastronomy of Hidalgo? We'll taste it.

Finally, you'll have free time for lunch and we'll be on our way back. We will make a brief stop in a traditional "rompopera" so that, if you wish, you can taste a delicious eggnog or "rompón".
