Regios of Monterrey

Monterrey, Mexico

Two hours south of border lies the third-largest city in Mexico: an entrepreneurial, industrial, and academic hub called Monterrey. This city gets its name from the mountains surrounding it, ("rey" = king and "mont" = mountain). Its friendly and open-hearted residents, called "regios" from the word royal, proudly affiliate themselves with one of two rival soccer teams, the Tigres or the Rayados.
