Under $100 / North America

Puebla, Mexico, is known as the birthplace of mole poblano, but this bustling city of 1.3 million people has more going for it than just great food. Beautiful architecture set amidst café-lined squares and a vibrant arts culture make it the perfect choice for a daytrip from Mexico City.

 

Begin with a brisk meal at Celia’s Café, where you find a variety of delicious breakfast options and great coffee. Expect to spend $10 for a meal. Next, make your way to the center of town to the zócalo, a giant plaza surrounded by stunning archways, boutique shops and the Catedral de Puebla. Spend the morning exploring the area.

 

For lunch, head over to Las Ranas, one of the city’s most popular taco joints. A meal here will cost $10.

 

In the afternoon you’ll want to step outside the city just a few miles to the nearby town of Cholula. Famed for its enormous pyramid and whopping array of 365 churches, the architectural wonders here can keep you busy for hours. A taxi to the town will cost $20.

 

Back in Puebla it’s time for the market. Seek out the Mercado el Carmen, where you’ll find locals peddling delicious mole recipes. You’ll want to have at least $10 to throw down. Next, learn a little about the history of Puebla and the surrounding region by visiting the beautiful Museo Amparo. This museum contains collections from pre-Hispanic times to the modern day.

 

Finally, make your way to El Mural de los Poblanos for some traditional regional cuisine. A dinner here will cost you $20.
