City of Angels
Recognized as a World Heritage Site thanks to its photogenic colonial buildings, Puebla remains one of Mexico's top destinations for architecture enthusiasts.Visit Iglesia de Tonantzintla and Fuertes de Loreto for their historical value. Amparo Museum (Museo Amparo) and Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Ocotlan are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Puebla: Tepozteco (in Tepoztlan), Plaza Atlixco (in Atlixco), Cenotes Tamcach-Ha & Choo-Ha (in Coba), Stromatolites in Bacalar Rapids (in Bacalar) and Tlaxcala (Murals of the Government Palace & Santuario de las Luciernagas). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Zocalo, pause for some serene contemplation at Catedral Basilica de Puebla, laugh and play at Estrella de Puebla, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Africam Safari.
