The Basics

Towering office blocks and sprawling suburbs make up much of San Pedro Garza García, but there are plenty of family-friendly attractions hidden behind San Pedro’s corporate facade. Take a hike through Chipinque Ecological Park, stop by Planetario Alfa, or visit the crafty Barrio de Tampiquito neighborhood.

For some of the city’s best nightlife, don’t miss "El Centrito"—this cluster of bars, clubs, and restaurants is one of Monterrey’s swankiest after-hours spots. Shopping fans are also catered to in San Pedro, thanks to Calzada San Pedro and Calzada del Valle.
