Date Monterrey Women During the Day
Monterrey is one of the largest cities in the northeastern region of Mexico and is located in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Oriental Mountain Range. The city also serves as the anchor to the Monterrey metropolitan area.
The city really comes alive with its nightlife, but that doesn’t mean you should discount the idea of finding girls to date during the day. In fact, day gaming can be strong in Monterrey so long as you know where to go!
So where should you go? Check out the following:
Shopping malls and plazas provide you with excellent opportunities for meeting women going about their day. Explore the shops, stores, and restaurants in these malls, and you’re bound to encounter women doing the same.
Some of the best malls and shopping districts in Monterrey include:
- El Zocalo
- Plaza Paseo Tec
- Galerias Monterrey
- Nuevo Sur
Parks and outdoor areas
Public parks are another excellent opportunity for meeting women. Go here to relax, unwind, and enjoy a stroll outdoors. You can run into girls who are here for the same thing. Some of my favorite parks in Monterrey include:
- Fundidora Park
- Santa Lucia Riverwalk
- Cerro de la Silla
- La Estanzuela Natural Park
Landmarks and tourist attractions
Last but not least, landmarks and tourist attractions provide another opportunity to meet women, both locals, and tourists such as yourself, while doing something fun. I suggest checking out:
- The Place Museum
- Museu Metropolitano
- Museum of Contemporary Art
- Museo de Historia Mexicana
Where to Meet Monterrey Girls at Night
Like I mentioned before, Monterrey really comes alive at night. There are two specific areas in Monterrey that are strong with nightlife and popular with tourists:
- Barrio Antiguo
- San Pedro
These two neighborhoods are about fifteen minutes away and are easily accessible either by walking or taxi.
Both of these neighborhoods also have plenty of hostels and hostels for you to stay at, so you’ll be within walking distance of the bars and clubs. Remember to be on your guard when walking around at night. If you stay at a hostel, you can get a group together to go bar hopping (and remember, it will also be easier to approach groups of girls while in a group yourself).
Some of the best bars and clubs in Monterrey include:
- Topaz Deluxe
- Will Club
- Indio Azteca
- Maverick Mty
- Akbal Lounge
- Cueva Carvajal
Dating Monterrey Girls Online
Hopefully, you can get a date or two set up before you even arrive in Monterrey. Alternatively, you can also use dating sites or apps if you plan on spending any time in the city as well.
Try the following options for dating Monterrey girls online:
Amo Latina is one of the biggest online dating websites in Latin America. It’s free to create an account and upload photos, but you will need to go with a paid plan to access the more advanced features such as live chat and video calls. Both desktop and mobile phone versions are available.
First launched in 1993, AmoLatina has thousands of members and is one of the biggest dating pools of any Latin American-based dating site.
Latin American Cupid
Latin American Cupid is noted for its detailed, organized, and informative profiles. You can learn a lot about someone just by looking at their profile here. Beyond basic information and photos, users can also answer questions to flesh out their profile further.
Every photo uploaded is verified and approved by moderators, and translation services are also available to get past any language barriers. There are people here looking for casual flings and serious relationships, although the site is not exclusively marketed towards people who may fall under either category.
As the name suggests, Mexican Cupid is a dating site designed to match Mexicans with single Westerners visiting the country. Almost all users are from either the United States or Mexico, with most American users being male and most Mexican users female. As with Latin American Cupid, Mexican Cupid attracts both those seeking serious long-term relationships as well as short-term flings.

Final Tips for Picking Up a Monterrey Woman
Here are my final tips for picking up women in Monterrey:
Pick The Right Area of Town
As we covered before, you must be strategic about the area of Monterrey you choose to go to. Barrio Antiguo and San Pedro have the best hotels, hostels, and bars and clubs in the city. These are also areas that attract the most tourists, so your chances of meeting foreign visiting women are also high.
Prioritize Your Safety
This one is already a given, but it bears repeating. Make sure your hotel or hostel is within walking distance of the bars and clubs you plan on visiting. Memorize the route, so you don’t have to repeatedly check your phone while you’re walking about. Stand upright, walk with purpose, and keep any valuables on your person hidden.
Learn Basic Spanish
Few people in Monterrey speak good English, which is why you should make an effort to learn basic Spanish phrases. Not only will it help you with your daily interactions, but it will also help you talk to women as well. And even if you don’t speak Spanish well, she’ll at least appreciate you making an effort. If anything, it can be romantic teaching each other words and phrases in your respective languages.
