Visit El Peral: Ecotourism adventure in San Jose Iturbide
San José de Iturbide, Guanajuato
The Zimapán Dam, also known as the Fernando Hirart Dam, is a wonder of Mexican engineering.
GET ON THE ROAD
On your way to the dam, admire the magnificent bridges crossing the mountains below. Stop at the overlooks to revel in the spectacular landscapes that unfold beneath your feet.
NAVIGATE AMONG ROCK WALLS
Head to one of the jetties and take a boat to navigate the river. Admire the different colors of the stones in the walls that run more than 650 feet high. Note the impressive cuts that the engineers made to the walls of rock to give fluidity to the current, and imagine the force of the river as it enters the hydroelectric power station.
STOP AND ENJOY
Enter between the canyons and stop at one of the beaches that splash up against the mountain range to observe the steep banks that run more than 650 feet high and expand upward into the sky. Discover the flight of the immense and mythical gliding eagles with their eyes set on the landscape.
BE A PART OF THE WILDLIFE’S CONSERVATION
Dare to participate in a bass catch-and-release contest that allows you to enjoy the excitement of fishing while doing you part in the conservation of life along the river. If the wind allows, rent a small sailboat and take advantage of its breezes to glide along the fresh body of water that basks between the mountains.
