san luis potosi

Located at 1,900 meters (6,200 feet) above sea level in central Mexico, San Luis Potosi was founded in 1592. The city was soon renown as one of the richest and most important cities in the New Spain, because of the wealth extracted from the mines in "Cerro de San Pedro" (Saint Peter's hill).

Nowadays San Luis Potos’ can be considered a modern city, however, it has not yet lost its colonial character, mixing present and past. With 600,000 habitants, the city has an arid climate, ranging from a maximum of 85° F (29° C) and minimal of 40° F (4° C). An average winter day in San Luis Potosi is sunny and averages high of 70° F and a low of 40° F. The summerŐs temperature averages are a high of 84° F and a low of 54° F in summer. San Luis Potosi is known as the "city of gardens" because it has at least 7 different beautiful plazas surrounded by fountains and gardens.

day trips

Because of its convenient central location, San Luis Potosi is the ideal location to visit many beautiful Mexican cities. For a day trip, San Miguel de Allende (2 hours) is the city most frequented by visiting teams. We also suggest Queretaro (2 hours) and Guanajuanto (2.5 hours). The La Loma staff will be happy to make any reservations for day trips prior to your arrival to any of these cities mentioned. Also near-by are the historical cities of Zacatecas and Real de Catorce.


"Coach Roach and his Staff have come (gone) out of their way to make our experience the one you always hope for coming to a new facility. The situation at La Loma is better than it looks by scanning the web site. The pool is new, clean and laid out to catter to the competitive swimmer. The dryland areas are numerous and top notch. Bring able to complete your workout in the pool and 5 minutes later be eating a meal in the cafeteria is absolutely ideal. I, without reservation, recommend La Loma to anyone interested in the altitude experience."

-Kevin Thorburn - Etobicoke  



"Our team had a wonderfoul experience at La Loma. The facility staff went out of their way to accomodate every need. La Loma is a perfect facility for an altitude training camp."

-Clark Campbell - Kansas University
