How to get from Puebla to Cholula Mexico for free

I took a day trip from Puebla to the famous Cholula to see the cathedral build on a pyramid with the volcano Popocatétepl in the background. And I did not know you could get there for free. 

First my photos, I selected the best 9 photos of that day for you to get an impression of the city and the tourist hotspots.


Now how do you get there from Puebla?

In Puebla next to the Train Museum, there is a terminal from which a free tourist train leaves twice a day and that train will drive you right to the foot of the pyramid with the Santuario on it.

They invite you to be there half an hour before departure, but just make sure you are on time before the train leaves.

From Cholula, it brings you right back into the city center.

It is a direct line, with no stops in between yet, although it is built for commuters in the future with more stops.

The best thing is that it is absolutely free!

Departure times and rules and regulations you can find on the train website (Go to Tren Turistico Puebla Cholula)

The train offers luggage space, and you can also bring a bicycle.

Now this information is free, like the train, and I am a great believer of paying it forward, if you feel that my website has helped you, please pay it forward by supporting my project

Help me help people

Mexico is suffering under the COVID rules and I meet more poverty than ever. With my small budget, I can’t do much, but I help where I can.
Especially the bare-footed hard-working kids and the elderly that have no family to take care of them.
