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.




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.
