Potrero Chico is a famous location for rock climbing in Mexico, with some peaks of 600 meters (2000 feet) and with a spectacular view from the top. Potrero Chico can best be described as a huge pointed rock wall in the middle of an arid desert-like cactus landscape.

How to get there

Flying into Monterrey is most certainly the easiest, taking buses can be much cheaper, and driving is for the adventurous who want the full Mexican experience, allowing you to see and do more. 

Best time to visit

The best time to climb is from November to February. Starting March it tends to get very hot and in April you might experience days 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). For more climate details about Monterrey click here.
