Here we give you the costs to prevent expenses this weekend from Friday, March 12 to Monday, March 15

On the occasion of the birth of Benito Juárez, which is commemorated on March 21, this holiday will be run to next Monday, so from March 12 to 15, we will have the long weekend.

Considering the pertinent measures to avoid COVID-19 infections, on this long weekend that is the second of the year, you can visit Puebla or something warmer such as Veracruz. That is why here we inform you about some costs that should be borne in mind if you plan to travel to either of the two destinations that offer a wide variety of activities and beautiful landscapes.

How much does it cost to go to Puebla?

If you are going from Mexico City, consider that you can do a time of two and a half to three hours, depending on the route and the vehicle load. Therefore, you should plan to keep the vehicle’s tank full of gasoline, which is priced above 20 pesos in Magna or Premium whose price is close to 22 pesos on average.

To head towards Puebla, you can take the Circuito Exterior Mexiquense / México 57D and later join the Autopista México – Puebla / México 150D. Another option, which is a little longer, for a minimal difference, is to arrive directly by the Mexico – Puebla / Mexico 150D highway and then take the San Martin Texmelucan – Tlaxcala / Mexico highway 117D.

Consider that the costs of the booths are as follows, whether you go by motorcycle or car.
