You also can lifesurf a couchsurfer, and learn on the way. There will be many surfers happy to help :) No charge.

Julio Díaz , Monterrey, MEX, 2 months ago

Hello Salome, On the company I work for there are courses for employees given by "Language Force", I asked a teacher for spanish courses and she told me you can get information at 44-44-4929 or 44-44-4050, they can get to your location I think. Regards!

Hyden, Yutz, FRA, 2 months ago

Hi All, I am looking for a home to rent in Monterrey City or a family to stay with who has plenty of room(s). Please contact me if you can help. Thanks!

GUTZCO , Monterrey, MEX, 2 months ago

You can contact to Aguila Calva, look for him among my couchsurfing friends.

Hyden , Yutz, FRA, 2 months ago

Thanks Gutzco...!

Kyno Lem , Toronto, CAN, about 2 months ago

Salut Hyden,
Let me know if you still need more options for renting and if you do have a particular area in mind. I could ask my parents to see if they still have a unit open.

Eddie Lau, Hong Kong, HKG, 2 months ago

Hi, all. I'm Eddie from Hong Kong and will go to Monterrey on 1st Jan.
It seems that Monterrey is super big, so I would like to ask how's the transportation here? Is it convenient? Indeed, what is the best way to travel from the airport to town? By taxi or bus? Thanks. :)

Majo Sanabria , Monterrey, MEX, 2 months ago

Hello, Eddie! I have a friend who also comes from Hong Kong, and she finds it to be more convenient to travel on taxi, although it is a little bit expensive, and not many buses drive by the airport. Where are you staying here? Maybe we could arrange a meet-up to take you around town :)

Mario Malibu , Monterrey, MEX, 2 months ago

Hi Eddie!

The transportation is not really good but it depends on where are you going, if you are moving around downtown you can use the metro which is great and cheap, or maybe some bus routes. The webpage Majo Sanabria told you is very useful.

From the airport you can get a bus in the terminal C (vivaaerobus) and it costs you around $65 pesos (5 dlls) it will take you downtown in less than an hour, the airport is kinda far and it's pretty safe to take this bus, there are 2 stops, one is near to the metro station called "Y" and the other one is the central bus station which is very close to the metro station "Cuauhtémoc".

The metro station "Y griega" is next to Parque Fundidora and this a must for visitors, there are museums, art expositions, you can take a look to an old big foundry, and so many more to do there, also this place has an artificial riverwalk of 2.5km that connects to downtown.

Kyno Lem , Toronto, CAN, about 2 months ago

Hi Eddie,
I will be blunt with you, you better use taxi or huber to move around this bad poorly design city. The public transportation is really bad compared with other cities/countries around the world. If you budget is low, I strongly suggested you to better meet local couchsurfers who are cool in showing you around the city in exchange of culture backgrounds, dinner, a glass of wine or drinks. But to answer your main question: Take a taxi from the Airport to your final destination in Monterrey; taking the bus option that Mario offered you (which is really well explained) it could be stressful for someone who doesn't speak Spanish and hasn't experienced a bit of Mexican culture. Cheers!
