Pena de Bernal

Reviewed By Raúl G - Mexico City, Mexico

The town of San Sebastián Bernal is best known for being located at the foot of one of the largest monoliths in the world: la Peña de Bernal.
The town itself offers very nice surprises while walking through its streets: from colonial architecture (El Castillo, Parish of St. Sebastian), museums (Museo de la Máscara, Museo Rosalío Solano), to living examples of outstanding religious syncretism, uniting the pre-Hispanic cults and the Christianity.
But undoubtedly the main attraction is the monolith, which is said to be the third largest in the world, just after the Pão de Açúcar in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the Rock of Gibraltar. The hight of La Peña varies depending on the source (288, 350 or 433 m?), but in what there is no variation is in its climbing, a real challenge which is best to undertake in the early hours of the day to avoid high temperatures and enjoy of the view once you reach the top, or at least almost... (the last 45m approx. are to be climbed with equipment which you may rent from different suppliers in the town).
Primitive dances in the atrium of the Parish, religious processions and excellent food and drinks in different restaurants and bars complete the unforgettable visit to this lovely town in the municipality of Ezequiel Montes, Querétaro, México.

Finca Sala Vive by Freixenet Mexico

Reviewed By Raquel B - Vancouver, Canada

What’s with the ridiculous plastic cups sales? Every time you order a glass of bubbles they charge you for a plastic cup, even if you’ve already purchased a cup, even if you brought your own glasses (my case - I need a real glass to be fair in my assessment of a wine). Is this wine Disneyland or a serious producer? It’s nice that they sell their products by the glass for almost all wines, but the concept certainly isn’t designed for an educated wine tasting but more like to get wasted at their tables.

Museo del Dulce mexicano, (Dulces Bernal)

Reviewed By Alejandra T

I think the museum is adequate in terms of showing typical Mexican candies however, there were some things I really didn't understand like why there were beans?
The museum can do much better if the explanation of the personnel who give the tour would improve instead of Reading what is posted on the walls or explaining obvious things. Provide interesting or curious facts about the Mexican candies, make people get interested in the history or process of candies, make people want to come back. Show people you know what you are saying because even when the tour guide ask: are there any questions? you don't show enough confidence so that people would want to ask.
Is cheap and might be ok if you want to take a look just for curiosity but I do recommend that they prepare better the people who give the tour.
After the little tour you can go to the store and buy your favourite candy.
My experience was not very good but maybe yours can be a really good one.

La Pena de Bernal

Reviewed By radar60 - Lompoc, California

the claim to fame of Bernal is la Pena, one of the biggest monolith rocks in the world. It's a steep hike but very popular. The town itself is buzzing with tourists and there are little shops and restaurants everywhere. Definitely worth a visit. .

De Cote Casa Vitivinicola

Reviewed By esrubilsky - Miami, Florida

This is a review of the restaurant. The place tries to hard to be a fancy restaurant and fails miserably. The kitchen clearly doesn't know what it is doing. Food took forever, came in drips (some people were finished before others had started) and some dishes came cold. My son ordered a rib eye which was 50% fat and veins. To be fair some of the dishes were well executed (especially the starters) but in general quality was inconsistent. The bill came out to 10,500 pesos for 8 adults and two small children - this for Mexico (and especially outside of CDMX) is outrageous.
The front staff tries hard but this is beyond them. The wine they sell is actually good. The setting (facility, grounds, views) is beautiful.

En un lugar mágico cómo lo es Bernal, encontré este pequeño establecimiento que me mostró que para disfrutar de buena cerveza solo se necesita buena actitud, música y ambiente. Quien lo administra conoce a la perfección el menú a ofrecer, y la variedad de cervezas que se encuentra es increíble!
Definitivamente una Parada obligatoria para quien visite Bernal y quiera probar cerveza artesanal Mexicana.
