Baroque Cathedral of Saltillo City on Mexico in an Autumn


Northeast Mexico

The northeast has never been Mexico’s main tourism draw, and news of cartel-related violence has turned off travelers even more. But the northeast’s history, sights and people are remarkable, and all the more rewarding for being unexpected. Monterrey is a lively modern city, while nearby Saltillo oozes colonial charm. You can check out the idyllic wine country of Parras and the unique desert ecosystem at Cuatro Ciénegas, one of Mexico’s most biologically diverse regions.
