Monterrey, with a population of almost 5 million, is the capital of the state of Nuevo Leon, and is known for its thriving economy as a bustling modern city, and its majestic setting, surrounded by the dramatic Sierra Madre Oriental. It is the commercial hub of northern Mexico and is the base of many large and significant international corporations. It is easily accessed from most major international airports.
The Cumbres de Monterrey National Park includes approximately 1,791 hectares and ranges in altitude from 730 to 2,200 meters above sea level, with representative flora and fauna of the xerophilous forest as well as oak-pine woodlands. With excellent weather and an annual average temperature of 21 degrees Celsius, Chipinque Park is one of the most important ecosystems in near proximity to the city. September is an ideal time for a visit.
