Nuevo Leon is bordered by Coahuila, Tamaulipas, and San Luis Potosi. The state is known for its industrial heritage, particularly in Monterrey. Wilderness areas are easily visited and include Monterrey’s own Chipinque Park and Cola de Caballo and other more remote areas such as Sierra de Picachos. Rock climbing is popular in El Potrero Chico.
