Querétaro is a state located in central Mexico known for its rich history, stunning architecture, and beautiful natural landscapes. The city of Querétaro, the state capital, is an dream destination for Waffleurs, offering a mix of urban and rural terrain, with incredibly inexpensive lodging and direct flights from many airports.

The city of Querétaro is known for its well-preserved colonial architecture, with charming plazas and cobblestone streets. The historic center of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to several important landmarks such as the aqueduct, the Temple of Santa Clara, and the main square, where you can find the Cathedral of Santiago.

Beyond the city, the state of Querétaro is known for its expansive natural beauty. The state is home to several national parks, such as The Sierra Gorda, which offers challenging gravel cycling routes through rugged mountains and pristine wilderness. The state also has a variety of routes through charming villages, with colonial architecture and local traditions.

Waffleurs can also expect to have wonderful dining experiences, as the state of Querétaro has a diverse culinary scene, with traditional Mexican food, as well as international options.

Overall, Querétaro is a destination that offers an exciting combination of culture, history, and challenging, beautiful terrain, making it the perfect location for a Belgian Waffle Ride event.


 BWR Mexico – Querétaro Mexico – Infierno Del Sur 

1) The final unroad/gravel race of the year in a beautiful old-world setting!
2) The largest prize purse of all BWRs and the finale for the Quadrupel Crown of Gravel Series!
3)  Perfect weather in November at an exotic location with average daily temperatures of 76 degrees. Querétaro enjoys year-round hot, dry weather. The climate is ideal for taking part in a variety of outdoor sports and activities and for taking in the culture, architecture and scenery.
4) Cheapest lodging of an BWR with villas averaging $40 per night and direct flights to Querétaro fromm many US airports.
5) Santiago de Querétaro, or just Querétaro as it’s known, is a colonial city steeped in Mexican history. The Spanish took control of the city in 1531 and designated it the “third city of New Spain”. It was here where the fathers of Mexico’s Independence Movement met in secret to discuss the overthrow of their Spanish rulers. The Mexican Constitution, written in 1917, was composed here.
6) The feel here is Baroque. Take time to browse its churches, its mansions with their graceful balconies, the myriad of tree-lined plazas and the quaint colonial side streets and alleyways. You will find that the historic colonial center is pristinely well kept and maintained.
7) Hot Springs: Surrounding Querétaro are a series of beautiful small towns like Tequisquiapan and San Juan del Rio. This area is one of Mexico’s natural hot spring regions, which are a very popular attraction.
8) Wine: In recent years, the state of Querétaro has become one of Mexico’s top wine-producing regions, and wine and cheese tours are one of the highlights of a visit to this area.
9) This buzzing city in the center of the country has more cycling routes than any other part of Mexico, which is why we choose our first Mexican BWR location as Querétaro.
10) Cobblestones: Overlooking the striking Bernal Rock, the city of Querétaro is a pleasant mixture of splendor and history. From its architectural gems painted along the cobblestone streets to the presentations of unique rock formations, the city’s culture is mirrored through its diversity of attractions. Querétaro is one of Mexico’s hidden surprises, bursting at the seams with mystique and timeless legends.

The Venue 

The Belgian Waffle Ride México venue is located at The Ex Hacienda del Lobo, also known as The Hacienda del Lobo, which is a historical property located in the state of Querétaro, Mexico. The hacienda dates back to the 18th century and was originally used for agricultural production, particularly the cultivation of sugarcane.
The hacienda has been beautifully restored and now serves as a hotel and event venue, offering visitors a glimpse into the region's rich history and colonial architecture. The main building of the hacienda is a grand, two-story structure made of stone and adorned with traditional red tile roofs. The property also features several smaller buildings, such as guesthouses, stables, and a chapel, that are also beautifully restored.
The hacienda offers a unique blend of luxury and rustic charm, as well as traditional Mexican food, decor and landscaping.It is surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes, including lush forests, hills and rivers, cobblestone and unroads that the BWR course will cover.
Overall, the Ex Hacienda del Lobo is a unique and beautiful property that offers visitors a chance to experience the history and culture of Querétaro while enjoying modern amenities and luxuries.
