Nuevo León is a state in the northeast of Mexico. It shares borders with Coahuila to the west, San Luis Potosí to the south, and Tamaulipas to the east and north. It also has a short border with Texas in the US.

The capital of Nuevo León is Monterrey. It lies at the center of the Monterrey metropolitan area with about 4,000,000 people, making it the third biggest in Mexico. Monterrey is also one of the most important economic centers of the country.

Nuevo León is one of the states most affected by organized crime. Although travelling in Nuevo León in general is still possible (especially during the day) as a hitchhiker you should be aware that car theft (with the owner still sitting inside) is quite common.
