Querétaro practical and useful information

Means of transportation

By plane :
The recent opening (2005) of the international airport of Querétaro (QRO), (442) 220 69 35, located only 34 km (21 miles) from the capital of the state allows the possibility of starting a tour from there in place of BJX (León). Aeromar proposes 4 flights a day - Querétaro/Mexico City. Continental operates a direct flight to Houston with correspondences in the USA. Aeromexico operates from QRO to many destinations in Mexico and there is also a direct flight to Los Angeles with Aeromexico.

In our opinion, unless you are coming from the USA, it is worth taking the road from Mexico City for the beauty of the landscape as well for your pocket.
