Hierve el Agua, Mezcal Tasting, and Teotitlan del Valle Tour from Oaxaca
From US$32.99
Hierve el Agua, a set of calcified mineral deposits that have hardened to resemble cascading waterfalls, is one of Mexico’s most spectacular natural attractions. During this exciting combo tour from Oaxaca, you’ll enjoy free time to dip in the mineral pools before heading to a local mezcal producer for tastes of the powerful brew. Top off the day with a visit to the traditional weaving town of Teotitlán del Valle.
What to Expect
Hierve el Agua—“the water boils” in Spanish—is one of only two petrified waterfalls in the world. The bubbling, hardened mineral deposits are shaped like two cascading rock formations, making the site one of Mexico’s most captivating natural attractions.
Once worshipped by the indigenous Zapotec people, the waterfalls can be difficult to reach by public transportation. On this convenient and action-packed combo tour from Oaxaca, enjoy a convenient hotel pickup with plenty of time to admire the stunning natural wonderland.
Dip in natural mineral pools and stroll through the calcified landscapes. Then, head to a local mezcal producer for a tasting tour of the sweet and fiery regional brew, including different flavored shots. After enjoying free samples, top off the visit with a firsthand peek at the traditional weaving town of Teotitlán del Valle, where Zapotec textile techniques have been passed down over the generations.
