From Queretaro, he drove us out into the countryside to Bernal, a Pueblo Magico 50 km east of Queretaro. The wild ride past construction along the canyon road towards Tequisquipan was reminiscent of Disneyland’s Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. Arriving at Bernal, we were delighted to find that the village was well maintained, quiet, and so much fun to explore. Backed by the third tallest chunk of rock of rock in the world, Peña de Bernal was accessible about half-way to the top, after which climbing equipment would be required. We climbed up and ran down, purchased gifts and artwork, toured rock shops, ate comida casera (homemade food) at a local restaurant, and had an all-round wonderful time snapping many pictures of scenic backdrops and the colorful village. I hope we come across another Pueblo Magico. Bernal will remain the scenic highlight of the journey.
