Walk the whole river front or take a scenic boat ride to see the waterfalls, landscaping and even museums! Beautiful and well maintained! One word of caution is to bring your own tissue or toilet paper to the restrooms as it is not provided.

Well I had seen a lot of pictures and it looked to me like a place where you could go and have a nice time with friends and beers, or a romantic date. However, it is really not for that. We went to Monterrey for a concert and decided to go an explore paseo santa lucia, but the only attraction... More

This was a great tour. About 20' long. We took it from MacroPlaza to Fundidora Park but you can do it the other way around. The ticket price (60 pesos or about $4 dollars) per adult includes return ticket. The scenery is beautiful. I recommend trying to seat towards the front of the boat for better views. On Saturday first... More

Paseo Santa Lucía is a river walk in the heart of Monterrey city. To me, it's somewhat unexpected to have this kind of water path in the middle of the city so well designed, and presented. Surrounded by gardens, benches and scattered park attractions for kids, this is a great option for a romantic walk, fun with family and great... More

Paseo Santa Lucia is a nice walk along a man-made river. It starts (or ends) in The Museo de Historia Mexicana which has two very good permanent expositions. Next to this museum there is another museum I can´t tell you much about because I haven´t visited it. Along the paseo you will find some good restaurants where you can eat... More

Not much to see but inexpensive way(60 peso) to either get into the downtown area(from park) or to the park(from downtown). It would have been nice if tour was in both English & Spanish(only Spanish spoken). Also would be convenient if they offered a one way ticket...regardless, you can get off at either end of ride. One way walk back... More

The river is a great place to come for a small walk. it is not too long only 2.5 km and there are lots of beautiful flower decorations on both sides. it goes from Fundidora to the Macro Plaza. You can also go on one of the tourists boats - Never tried it since I always prefer to walk.

It is a nice, clean and one of the most famous places to visit if you go to Monterrey. They have a river that goes through the downtown! It reminds me at San Antonio Tx., but also this place has a lot of fun things to do, you can go for a walk, ride your bike or roller skating. They... More

If you came to Monterrey and never visit the Paseo de Santa Lucía, is like you never came at all. It a wonderful experience, very romantic if you want it to be, but is for all the family to enjoy. There are many activities to do at both ends of the river. In one end, you have the Fundidora Park,... More
