Introducing Ciudad Valles
Ciudad Valles slumbers on the banks of the huge Río Valles and serves as a good base for trips into the luscious Huasteca. It’s also close to the midpoint between Monterrey and Mexico City, at the intersection of Hwy 85 (the Pan-American) and Hwy 70 (running east–west from Tampico to San Luis Potosí). Hence, it’s a handy stop for motorists. It also serves as a good base for rafting and trips to caves and waterfalls in the luscious Huasteca.
