Waterfalls of Tamasopo!!

Do not miss the opportunity to see the waterfalls of Tamasopo. A bit chilly in November to swim but the brave can handle it!

Here you can see the waterfall called Puente de Dios. A beautiful place. You just have to ask for directions as it is not well signed. There are about 145 steps you have walk down in order to reach the water, so take your time. Once you get down there you will not be disappointed. You can get in the... More

This may be one of the most beautiful place attraction to visit . However it is so dirty and people in this region are used to it( I guess) . People are cooking and eating inside the waterfall . Waterfalls are amazing but definitely not for tourism .

backpackers always ask where they can buy peyote at Las Pozas, our guide, tells us. We laugh at the cliche, after all savvy travellers associate mind-altering substances with surrealism. It all brings back memories of retro-hippie rites of passage. WE are at Las Pozas, a 30 ha garden of the eccentric Brit James Edwards, near the Mexican village of Xilitla... More

Whether you are into waterfalls (there are 4), caves, birding, hot sulfer springs and orchids, this area has something to offer. You feel perfectly safe with the great people who live here. By all means visit the Huasteca to truly see Mexico.

We took the tours from Ruta Huasteca Expedicions, and spent 3 days visiting some of the most beautiful places I have been to. It has to be one of my best and favorite vacation in Mexico. If you like nature and some adventure sports, this cannot be missed out on.

The review by "Queen J" earlier was spot on; please refer to her review for all the places to visit. Huasteca is a region on the eastern part of the San Luis Potosi province. We drove east from San Luis Potosi via RioVerde to the Huasteca Potosina region. This is a beautifully natural area, with lots of trees, hills/mountains, natural... More
