Stay in our hotels in Reynosa, Mexico, to discover this border town’s simple pleasures, from shopping for handicrafts in a historic marketplace to savoring the local tacos al pastor.
The city center is easily accessible from our hotels in Reynosa, located inland from the Rio Grande and the United States border. Plaza Principal, the main square, is anchored by the city’s two most important churches. The twin bell towers of the modern Cathedral rise over the humble Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, built by Spanish missionaries in the 1700s. For an overview of local history, visit the small Reynosa History Museum in an old stone house. Families staying at our Reynosa hotels visit La Playita, a nearby park on the shores of the Rio Grande, where locals picnic and enjoy cool breezes on hot days.
Our hotels in Reynosa are near the pedestrian-only Hidalgo shopping street connecting Plaza Principal to Zaragoza Market. This bazaar is filled with Mexican handcrafts, from colorful woven blankets and baskets to kitschy sombreros and miniature guitars. The large Plaza Periférico shopping mall south of town offers international clothing brands. Taquerias in Zaragoza Market and along Hidalgo sell all varieties of tacos, from stewed pork to roast steak. A Reynosa specialty is cabrito, grilled goat, served with thick slices of roasted onions. In the evening, enjoy a crisp beer crafted at the Sierra Madre Brewing Company near Plaza Periférico. Or head to the raucous sports bars and all-night clubs of the Zona Rosa neighborhood near the border crossing.
Book a room at one of our Holiday Inn® Reynosa hotels in the summer to cheer on the Reynosa Broncos at Adolfo Lopez Mateos stadium or in October, when the city’s Casa Cultural hosts traditional dance performances and live music for the Tamaulipas International Festival.
