TRADITIONS, WATER PARKS, CHEESES, AND WINES

A town that preserves its colonial charm with narrow streets and beautiful squares, distinguished by its tranquility, blue skies, pure air, and excellent weather throughout the year.

It is famous for its thermal waters, which have turned it into a renowned resort, but it is also well-known for its artisanal production of wicker and wickerwork: handwoven baskets, trays, chairs, and tables, as well as the carving of opal stones, whose mines can be visited in the town of La Trinidad.

Honoring the vineyard traditions, the National Cheese and Wine Fair has been established, celebrated from the last weekend of May when plazas and streets are filled with stalls selling wines, cheeses, and crafts. However, the best time to visit the vineyards is during the harvest festivals, between July and August.

Tequisquiapan enjoys a cool and dry climate throughout the year, with an average temperature of 20ºC, though it can rise up to 30ºC during the summer months.

It is located 63 km (one hour) from the city of Querétaro, 209 km (2 hours 45 minutes) from the city of Guanajuato, and 177 km (2 hours 45 minutes) from Mexico City.
