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

Guanajuato

The state of Guanajuato has it all: the city of León, which is prolific, Guanajuato of European influences, and San Miguel de Allende with its bohemian allure. Smaller, although equally beautiful, are Celaya with its cajeta (milk caramel) and Irapuato with its strawberries. All these cities are semi-hidden among plains, mountains and abrupt hills. Each one, in its own way, contributes to forming a diverse state, rich in culture, with flavours and a past like few others.

States

Aguascalientes

The National San Marcos Fair placed this city on the global map, although for local tourism, Aguascalientes is an accessible destination, a great host that receives guests in a capital which stands out because of its cultural life and order. Its Colonial past is unveiled in every corner, but it is enough to move a little away from the center to discover archaeological sites like El Ocote; the Fría Mountains for camping and fishing aficionados; the dam; or Real de Asientos, its Pueblo Mágico.

States

Zacatecas

Images of desert landscapes, silver mines (which are today night clubs), Baroque churches and natural reserves could all belong to different spots on the planet. However, all these have a land in common: Zacatecas. Thanks to the mining wealth, this central state had a very important role during the Colony and much later, during the Revolution. Today, there are still traces of this in buildings, monuments, and even in museums: pieces of history that have nothing boring about them.

States

Jalisco

The land of tequila, charros and mariachi is much more than traditions. With Guadalajara as a leader in art, culture and gastronomy, the traveler has much to explore and visit in Jalisco; like staying in one of the most chic haciendas or country homes in Mexico, playing golf with a view of the sea in Puerto Vallarta, practicing extreme sports on the mountain, or visiting the Tequila route (the traditional or other more alternative ones thanks to boutique tequila houses).
