HUASTECA POTOSINA

huasteca  

In addition to waterfalls, rivers and lagoons formed by the warmth and humidity of this region, this place is home to places with unbelievable natural landscapes, like the Sótano de las Golondrinas (Swallow’s Basement), the most beautiful vertical cave in the world, where various types of birds nest. And what can we say about Xilitla? This is the small town where the surrealist artist Sir Edward James, a friend of Salvador Dalí’s, created structures that are apparently absurd but which blend into nature in a welcoming manner.

Activities

Ecotourism

     
       

Ecotourism around the Huasteca in San Luis Potosí definitely has an aquatic character, for the region is known for the profusion of water bodies and active currents. So, in Tamasopo the trend is riverside resorts and swimming in pools at the foot of the falls, Cascadas del Pueblo. At Puente de Dios you will find the so-called Poza Azul – blue pool, which is true to its name – and the possibility of swimming among stalactites. You can canoe down the waters of river Tampaón and, with some luck, visit Cueva del Agua (Water Cave); upstream you will find the famous waterfall, Tamul.

Natural Sites

     

Ciudad Valles is the logical base for exploring the Huasteca in San Luis Potosí, to tour the natural beauties in the area. Going north, the Abra-Tanchipa ecological reserve is located, on the northern edge of tropical forests, keeping threatened species safe, among basements and caves, like the one in Los Sabinos community lands. To the west, you will find Puente de Dios, this exceptional erosive formation flanked by pools filled with intensely blue waters. And, the greatest award waits to the east: the sight of 105 meters of water plunging in the spectacular Tamul waterfall.

States that make up

Yucatan

THaving some sorbet on Montejo Avenue, discovering the grandness of Chichen Itza or trying the best cochinina pibil in the country are only some of the attractions of a state that has become famous over its independent spirit. Yucatec people, inheritors of the Maya culture, are so different from the rest of the country that their towns and cities also reflect this particular vision.

States

Quintana Roo

Before the large tourist developments of Cancun and the Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo was a single thing: jungle that meets the Caribbean Sea. And still today, this stretch that welcomes travelers from the whole world continues to be fascinating because of the same fundamental reason: the turquoise sea. The Meso-American coral reef begins in front of its coasts, which is the second largest in the world after Australia’s Great Barrier. From Cancun to Bacalar, the diversity in options is huge: large resorts to small boutique hotels, although the attraction is always the same, the sea.
