Puebla is in a scenic mountainous region about 120 km southeast of Mexico City. It is the fourth-largest city in Mexico and is the home of mole, a popular Mexican sauce. The city is also known for its nightlife. And, while it’s not exactly known for having beautiful women, there are still plenty enough to make it worth a quick trip!
DATING IN PUEBLA
Not bad, as long as you have your logistics in order. What I mean by that is don’t live too far away from the bars. For instance, if you live in downtown Puebla, you’ll have a much harder time getting a girl you met in Cholula to go home with you. Everything in Cholula is close by, so if you’re staying there it’s a non-issue. Single girls seem to prefer foreigners to locals, which is good news for you. Some dudes might give you a hard time because they’re jealous, but they’re harmless. You’re in a posh area and so most guys aren’t overly tough. Social groups are a big thing here, so you’ll have to break down some walls. You’re likely to get a decent amount of attention if you dress well and radiate positive body language.
Online dating in Puebla, Mexico: If you want to meet women in Mexico the easy way, I highly recommend signing up for Mexican Cupid. You can chat with local girls and set up dates before you arrive in the country, which is a major advantage.

NIGHTLIFE IN PUEBLA
7/10 (Only addresses Cholula)
A good nightlife scene in Cholula, but some the clubs (and some of the people) are a bit stuck-up. However, there’s a lot of choice and you’re sure to find something suited to your personality.
I recommend: Bambukos. The link is a poor video, but it gives you a good idea of the music and atmosphere.
SAFETY IN PUEBLA
Safe in downtown Puebla and in Cholula. I’ve heard the outskirts of the city are dangerous, but I heard it from rich Poblanas who have probably never been within 10 km.

I have to knock it down a half-point because I felt that there was a bit more hate towards the white man than in other parts of Mexico. Of course, Mexicans have more than enough reasons to hate gringos with enthusiasm – and I’m surprised more of them don’t – but I don’t have much time for it. Also, nightlife in Puebla only exists Thursday-Sunday.
