Natives consider their City a center of advancement and innovation; a thriving city, as attested by its strong economy.
Monterrey has frequently excelled in various international rankings, such as the one made by America Economía magazine, which for the eighth consecutive year ranks Monterrey as one of the top five cities for doing business in Latin America.
Visitors will find interesting sites and activities in this out-of-the-ordinary city: do not miss taking a ride or a walk through Santa Lucia Riverwalk, a boat ride navigating the canal connecting the Macroplaza to Fundidora park along a river that winds 2.5 km (1.5 miles).
This expansive and unique Fundidora Park, located on the grounds of the former Iron and Steel Foundry Company, mixes green spaces and recreational areas with the industrial history of the city. The park includes Blast Furnace 3: Steel Museum, the Art Center, Mabe Fundidora Ice Rink, the Parrot House, Tempering Lake, Plaza Sesamo Park, and many other attractions.
Monterrey is home to several museums, first class cultural venues that showcase works of art of great significance: the Museum of Contemporary Art in Monterrey MARCO, the Mexican History Museum, the Northeast Museum MUNE, Alfa Planetarium, the Glass Museum, and the Steel Museum's Furnace 3.
All these features make Monterrey an ideal city for business travel.
