Taking a Tour Bus through Puebla, Mexico

We were in Puebla, Mexico and hanging out a lot at the Zocalo.

We kept seeing these tour buses coming and going and they seemed pretty popular, so we decided to take a city tour.

One after another, buses would come and go, lining up here at this location.

Behind this bus was the Porfiriana Restaurant where we would meet up with friends and eat a meal here almost daily.

Tour priced marked on the side of the bus, Puebla, Mexico

Price for the tour





On the sides of the bus, the price of the tour was clearly marked. No student discount, no senior discount, no nada.

But gee, for about $3USD we decided to go for it!

This tour promised to take us to the old neighborhoods and give us panoramic views of Puebla.

These streets in Puebla are very clean. The buildings are painted bright colors and there are potted plants everywhere!

Notice the Talavera tile around the window

As we have mentioned before, Puebla is famous for their tile work. Buildings, homes, churches and convents all over the city celebrate this decorative tile.

Colorful buildings and local church

Unfortunately, I don't know the name of this local church, and there are many throughout Puebla.

But again, notice the clean streets and manicured planter in the center.

The bus climbed and climbed up in altitude until we stopped here at this public park for about 15 minutes. You can get a better view of this park by looking at Billy's video here.

Barrio de los Artistas





This is the neighborhood of the Artists. Notice the painted cobblestones in the center, and various places where the Talavera tile is placed on the buildings. 

Near this neighborhood, there is a bar/cafe called Cafe Rentoy where we had a meal. Take a look!

We're back at the Zocalo in the center of town, and here's a family just starting out on the tour.

Some tour buses have a rooftop or a canvas tarp on the top layer of the bus, but this one is wide open.

Bring a hat and some water!

Tour time is just over an hour, and it's a good way to get your bearings around the city. For $3USD, what can you lose?
