Querétaro is one of Mexicos most visited destinations without a beach. Despite the lack of waves and sand that many vacationers venture to Mexico for, Querétaro has plenty of great things to see and do! The most prominent feature of the city, and something WhatsCheaper.com considers a must-see, is the awe-inspiring aqueduct. This structure consists of 75 arches and spans 1,280 meters, particularly impressive when noting that the aqueduct was constructed between 1726 and 1738 as a means to transport water from La Cañada to Querétaro.    

The city has a number of fantastic museums, each holding an impressive collection of artifacts showcasing the area's vivid history. WhatsCheaper.com suggests a visit to the Museo Regional, housed in a building constructed in the mid-to-late 1600's. The Museo de Arte is also not to be missed, displayed in a former monastery built in the late 18th century and considered to be one of Mexico's finest works of Baroque art. Speaking of art, you'll likely notice that creative culture has a large presence here in Querétaro. Each year, the city hosts the Festival of Santiago de Querétaro during Holy Week. This eight day celebration features art, photography, literature, music, dance, and a variety of workshops. The festival draws thousands of people from all around the country, and even internationally.    

When you're ready to switch gears from museums and monuments, WhatsCheaper.com recommends taking advantage of Querétaro's great shopping. Unique handcrafted goods are sold throughout the city, and an original leather good or piece of traditional jewelry makes the perfect souvenir. With great weather and beautiful surroundings, Querétaro is also fantastic place to enjoy some outdoor recreation.
