Queretaro Wine Weekends
Stay in the heart of Queretaro, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with almost 500 years of written history. Explore the plazas and twisting streets full of character, history and beautiful colonial architecture. Choose from regional cuisine or high-end restaurants for your dining pleasure in the evenings. This 4-night itinerary highlights the best of Queretaro, plus gives you free time to do things on your own with a local’s suggestions.

Day 2: The Pueblo Magico of Bernal and Two Wineries
Visit Bernal, a pueblo magico of 2500 people, marvel at the third largest monolith in the world which sits behind the town, and enjoy two spectacular wineries.
There are supposedly more 90+ year old people per capita in Bernal than any place else on earth and the worlds third largest monolith rises 1410 feet above the town. Bernal is supposedly an energy vortex site like Sedona, Arizona. Bernal is know for its semi-precious stones mined nearby (fire opals), for goats milk caramel candies, cheese filled pastries and their world famous blue corn gorditas with chicharron crumbled in the dough. There are many artisanal products made and sold in Bernal and just about everything costs $5 USD. When you finish shopping, we will go to El Negrito to give you a chance to sample those delicious gorditos, perhaps with a café de olla, hibiscus water or beer.
Then we are off to two terrific wineries with food and wine at both locations. The wineries will be chosen according to your wine preferences. Enjoy the evening in Centro on your own.
Day 3: Free Day in Queretaro
Queretaro is a beautiful city, and we want you to have time to explore it at your leisure.
