I'm meeting friends in El Potrero around Xmas but want to see some more of Mexico beforehand. I have plenty of climbing experience, I lead around 5.10a, I do lead trad but am out of practise and am likely to gravitate towards bolts or easy trad. I prefer multipitch. I don't do well on overhanging rock. And if I can't find partners beforehand, I'm going to have to go to crags where there is a reasonable chance of meeting people. Any suggestions of good crags to visit? Also any suggestions of other sites where I can post for partners? I do speak Spanish.
El Potrero Chico- assuming it's still safe in that area *(check first). Was there years ago- amazing multi pitch sport with easy access and size like Yosemite- well not quite but pretty tall aka 15p (100ft each). Plenty of 1 pitch stuff around. I'm not sure about the bouldering there... good luck.
Check out Pena de Bernal in the state of Queretaro - 6-7 pitch routes, 5.8 to 5.10, bolted. Cool village at the base. Also, parque el chico in the state of Hidalgo offers many multipitch lines on conglomerate formations. Did a road trip last winter and it was a blast.
