Puebla may be Mexico's most beautiful colonial city. It is located at an altitude of approx. 7,000 feet, and is the capital city of the State of Puebla. It's only a two hour drive from Mexico City. Many wonderful colonial buildings can be found here. The entire city has been declared a national heritage site to control development and preserve it's Spanish architecture and ambiance developed over 450 years!

The metro population is estimated at 2,500,000. It is big enough to provide all the services you would expect from a city. These services include many fine hospitals and clinics, and well trained doctors. Comprehensive and inexpensive national medical insurance to cover hospital, doctors and drugs, is available.
