Jilotepec

The beautiful landscape that surrounds Jilotepec has its maximum point at Las Peñas, a natural spot located in the Dexcani Alto community. People from all over the world come up to this place to practice adventure sports or to practise climbing. The landscape is composed of big stone monoliths that are located through all the woods.

As the legend goes, this used to be a prosperous town, but its inhabitants started to commit outrages and didn't value how fortunate they were. As a punishment, Gods decided to give them a lesson and they turn to stone all the people there along with their houses.

To take the best of this place, there are more than 170 routes over the stones with different degrees of difficulty. You can also practise rappel or trekking.

You can camp in the designated areas. The place has a water mirror and the La Avellana dam, located inside the forest.
