Family to visit Queretaro for 1 month in March 2006

by montreal5 Online Now Feb 6, 2007 at 1:04 PM

I will be going to Queretaro for 6 to 8 weeks with my 1 year old, 3 year old and 10 year old. We will be staying in a hotel on de febrero, in zona industrial benito juarez. If anyone is familiar with this area can you give me some ideas of what to expect? Do we need a car? Can I walk to stores, markets, parks with the kids? should I bring items like my strollers, high chairs, car seats and beds from here with me or are there stores near there where I can purchase them (new or used)? What is the law for car seats and seat belts? Is it a safe area for children? Are there activities for children nearby? Would I be able to find any baby sitter services so that I can see the night life with my husband? Does anyone have photos that I can see of the people and life in this part of Mexico?

what so you recommend are things we should see and do before we leave Mexico?
thank you!

    Hello, nice to hear somebody from Montreal is coming to Queretaro as there are some of us from Queretaro traveling frequently to Montreal.

    I really can't recall of any hotel in Zona Industrial Benito Juarez but a motel. Though there are several hotels on 5 de febrero, so if you specify the exact hotel would be better.

    If it is actually on zona industrial Benito Juarez, then there is a high need of having a car because as it's name says, it is an industrial area which is not safe for walking with foreign children and is kind of dirty (as any industrial area anywhere else).

    I really can't suggest if you bring all your baby stuff as I don't have kids myself but you can definetely buy new ones here (not used, or at least not in the places I know), and anyway I wouldn't buy used things for my babies.

    If the hotel is on 5 de febrero then I can only think of 3: Radisson, Fiesta Americana and Holiday Inn. Only Holiday Inn may be at a walking distance of something worth visiting. These hotels are used mainly for business purposes as they are nearby hospitals, factories and business district, so I would definetely have a car, particularly as you're bringing kids. And no, there are no nearby places for taking them out.

    This doesn't mean there is nothing in Queretaro to see, there are lots of things but not in that area. You should visit the Centro Historico area, Juriquilla, nearby parks and lakes.

    Let me know if I can further assit.
