Tour the Sierra Gorda and start a fascinating adventure where you can encounter Franciscan missions, which are a World Heritage site, amongst the pine, oak and juniper forests, semi-arid deserts, mountains, rivers and waterfalls.

LEARN ABOUT THE MISSIONS
Make a stop at each one: Jalpan, Landa, Tilaco, Tancoyol and Concá. Look for architectural elements full of symbolism to illustrate the fusion of the old beliefs with Catholic customs that was used to catechize the area.

DISCOVER ITS NATURAL TREASURES
Begin with the magic of Puente de Dios and the intense sound of the Escalena River. Explore the Cueva del Agua and its stalactite and stalagmite formations, where the infiltrating light reflects like stained glass on the water. Let yourself be refreshed and splash in the countless waterfalls like El Chuveje that you will encounter on your trip.

LEARN ABOUT REGIONAL FAUNA 
Walk the trails, climb the rocks, camp in the clearings and discover tracks from the jaguars and black bears that wander throughout the mountains. Feel the flutter of the green macaws and the Humboldt butterflies that live in the forest while you cast your fishing pole in the streams.
