Renting a car in Saltillo allows you to see so much more of this beautiful and friendly area of Mexico. See the 13 foot high cross that stands on El Cerro del Pueblo - the people's hill - overlooking Saltillo, or take in some of the historic places of interest such as the aqueduct, the underground tunnels or Saltillo Cathedral. Saltillo, though it is located in the Chihuahuan desert, enjoys a cooler climate than other desert towns thanks to its elevation of 1,600 metres above sea level, so planning road trips is fun in these pleasant conditions. The nearby city of Monterrey is a great choice for a drive with the family, or make use of your rental car to drive to the Mirador above the city for the famous views that it affords. Car hire is the ideal way to discover exciting towns like Arteaga, or for enjoying trips to the nearby Zapaliname mountains.
