San Nicolas de los Garza

San Nicolas de los Garza, sometimes known only as San Nicolas, is a city and coextensive municipality in the Mexican state of Nuevo Leon that is part of the Monterrey Metropolitan area. It has become basically a city for residencies and family houses, although it still has several factories that tend to relocate to the periphery of the metropolitan area. It is the third-largest city in the state, behind Monterrey and Guadalupe.

It houses the Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon (Autonomous University of Nuevo Leon), one of the most prestigious public schools in Mexico and Latin America.

According to Mexico's national development index, people that live in San Nicolas are among the happiest in the country, and have the greatest quality of life standard in the nation. San Nicolas, although less populated than Monterrey, has the higher population density.
