The Universidad de las Américas-Puebla (UDLAP) is one of most highly regarded private universities in Mexico. It is accredited in the United States by SACS, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
In addition to top rated academic programs, and perhaps unexpectedly, the UDLAP has an American style university football team that regularly places well among the Mexican league. A number of other team and individual sports are also available to visiting students.
Puebla, a stunning colonial city in the State of Puebla, is about 70 miles southeast of Mexico City—close enough for day trips to see the wealth of cultural attractions in the capital, and far enough away to escape the traffic and pollution.
