When moving to Monterey, N. L., one need not worry about not having friends; the people here are some of the nicest in Mexico. The city is also rich in beautiful parks. In no time you will be enjoying the mountain view with your new comrades. Make it a point to bring your cooler and hiking shoes.

Monterrey is a city surrounded by mountains that is constantly growing and buzzing with life. Most of the northern Mexican economy is generated here and the locals are known to be hardworking people; in this city there is hardly a quiet moment as there are new buildings being built left right and center with the city itself constantly expanding and reinventing itself, a very fun place with very friendly people.

Thy should have in mind that the weather here is extremely hot most of the year. Therefore, they should bring comfortable clothes. Another important factor is the pollution. The city might also be a dangerous place since people is not careful when they drive, so, they would need to be aware of it while walking.

Monterrey is a beautiful city in which people can enjoy the many exquisite meals that it has to offer. Not only do meals reach a higher level of flavor, but also the music that is played at the different zones during the day is quite tasteful to the ear. To decide to visit such a gorgeous city can be a marvelous experience.

Monterrey is a hot one, and I mean it literally. We get up to 107º in summer. The need for a car is another detriment; life here gets rather annoying without one. But on the whole we have a nice weather most of the time, and if you have enough money to drive around in Über or enough patience to ride the public bus, you would surely have a nice time.
