What you'll do
This experience takes place on mondays but if you are interested in another date please send me a message. We will pick you up at 8.00 am at Plaza Constituyentes. Please be punctual to make the most of our time. We will leave Querétaro City in the direction of the "Sierra Gorda" (part of the Sierra Madre Oriental mountain range). As we go deeper into the Sierra, we will admire beautiful and breathtaking landscapes. (Distance Querétaro- San Joaquín : 133 kms, 2 hours approximately) We will arrive to the arqueological site of Toluquilla at 2700 msnm. After exploring this site we will pass through the magical town of San Joaquín until we find our second arqueological site: Ranas. After visiting Ranas we will go to the nearby caverns of Los Herrera, where we will descend to admire stalactites, stalagmites and galleries formed in the bowells of the earth. Afterwards we will enjoy a picnic with cold meat, cheese, bread and wine or beer. Back to Querétaro we will leave you at the initial point. (Please take note it is not possible to smoke in the car). Reservations must be made through airbnb, first step is choosing your tour date in the "calendar" or "dates" section
Luz, (my co-host) and me, (Ana), are people with hotel and hospitality industry experience. We have travelled through many places in México and abroad and we know that our country is unique! We have organized so many tours and visits with friends and family that it seemed only natural to put them available to more people. We will be more than happy to show you these interesting and in some cases little known places of the beautiful Querétaro state. If you are interested in a special date and that date appears as "not available" in the calendar, send me a message and I´ll see if we can clear it for you. Also I invite you to give a look to our other experiences: PIRAMIDE Y SANTUARIO DE QUERETARO (Pyramid and Shrine in Querétaro) EL SABOR DE AMEALCO Y HACIENDAS (The flavor of nearby Amealco town and Haciendas) MARIPOSA MONARCA DESDE QUERETARO (MONARCH BUTTERFLY SANCTUARY FROM QUERETARO) this experience is only available from late November until March.
We will make a picnic with cold meat, cheese, bread, wine or beer.
We will include botted water and wine or beer for our picnic.
