  • “It has been a magnificent year: the people, the culture, the weather. All of the places that I have visited have been magical. I have never doubted my decision to come here, and thanks to the Tec for giving me this opportunity.”

    Lucía Catalina, Spain

  • When I arrived here, I felt a bit lost, out of my comfort zone, far from everything I knew. That feeling changed when I began my classes! I discovered a new culture and despite of my fears, I enjoyed myself so much I wished it lasted longer. Thank you for everything.

    Valeria, Belgium

  • "Thank you for all your help this semester. This experience at the Tec de Monterrey has changed my opinion of Mexico. It was lots of fun.”

Wondering where this beautiful city is?

San Luis Potosí has an ideal central location in the Mexican Republic. It is equally distant to the country's main metropolitan centers: Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey. San Luis Potosí is called the "two hour city", because that's how long of a drive it takes to get to important destinations, such as Aguascalientes, San Miguel de Allende, Zacatecas, Dolores Hidalgo, Querétaro and Guanajuato.

Turistic attractions

San Luis Potosí is one of the states with the most ecodiversity in the Mexican Republic. That's why it is divided in three regions:

The Huasteca Zone

This zone has the widest rivers in the region with spectacular rapids and impressive waterfalls in a tropical forest setting.

The Middle Zone

The territoty that boasts important water sources, particularly the Media Luna Lagoon, a favorite among scuva-divers.

The High Plateau

This territory is known for its mineral richness exploited in colonial times, leading to the construction of important "haciendas" and colonial cities, particularly the capital of the state. Some of the important colonial constructions function now as large and excellent hotel facilities and restaurants.
