Monterrey and the Metropolitan Area

Monterrey is vibrant, tireless and multifaceted–a city where sophistication goes hand-in-hand with folk traditions.

Its wide range of museums, parks, restaurants, bars, shopping malls and exlusive stores; its love of soccer and baseball; its exciting music and art production and its shows and nightlife make this a metropolis that never fails to fascinate.

Monterrey is also a powerful industrial city, a driving force for Mexico’s national economy and a cultural epicenter, for which it has been dubbed “La Sultana del Norte” (“The Sultaness of the North”).


This area is located in a valley, and lies about 500 m above sea level. The mountains that surround it give it an exceptional beauty. It has a dry desert climate with rain during the summer.

Municipalities of the metropolitan area:

San Pedro Garza García
General Escobedo
