Puebla — 5 nights

Recognized as a World Heritage Site thanks to its photogenic colonial buildings, Puebla remains one of Mexico's top destinations for architecture enthusiasts.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Tonantzintla and Templo San Francisco Acatepec. Popular historic sites such as Rosary Chapel (Capilla del Rosario) and Zona Arqueologica de Kabah are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Puebla: San Pedro Cholula (Zona Arqueológica de Cholula & Parroquia de San Andres Cholula). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Puebla Cathedra, explore the world behind art at Museo Internacional del Barroco, examine the collection at Museo Regional de la Revolucion Mexicana - Puebla, and get lost in a book at Biblioteca Palafoxiana.

To see where to stay, maps, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Puebla day trip app.
