Still have questions? Don't hesitate to contact us for personal assistance.
What do I need to bring?
Make sure you have any personal climbing gear you would normally bring for a day at the crag. Approach and climbing shoes, harness, helmet, chalk-bag, and appropriate clothes. A small day pack is also recommended for extra water, food, and gear.
Can I bring my family?
Absolutely, positively. The towns associated with these climbing areas are gorgeous, and fun filled. Artesian markets galore, architecture, restaurants, shops of all sorts. And for the older members of the family, we are directly in the widest path of Mexico's famous Cheese and Wine Route. The activities are endless. Beautiful hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, and the pyramids are just a short drive south.
Is Queretaro safe?
The short answer is 'yes.' While we can't be responsible for your well-being when not on our ropes, look at the statistics for Queretaro versus other tourist destinations. You're in good hands.
Pesos or dollars?
Both! You will need to pay us in US currency and tip the guides in American Dollars, but carry pesos for all else. There are money machines in the towns, but the exchange is far worse, and banks add on fees. It is best to change money in the airport. Great rate, and no fees.
Should I check my luggage?
Be sure to bring your climbing essentials with you on the plane! Clothing and non-essentials can be checked, but if you arrive and your climbing shoes, harness, etc didn't make the flight, you're going to be bummed.
Absolutely. All three towns have four star resaurants that will cater to your individual dietary needs. Vegetarian, Vegan, or Gluten intolerance can be handled easily, and deliciously. Please let us know ahead of time, and we will handle the rest!
Should I fly into Queretaro or Mexico City?
This is really dependent on your schedule, and convenience. Bernal is twenty minutes from Queretaro airport, and is super convenient. Mexico City is [usually] a less expensive flight but not always. A guide's assessment? Book thru to Queretaro. It is a beautiful airport, and easy.
