El Salto Waterfall

Mazamitla

The forests of Mazamitla are divided into sections, so you can choose which one to visit according to its attractions. The Los Cazos subdivision is a must, as this is where the El Salto Waterfall is located.

This water curtain is 35 meters (115 feet) tall. To get there, a 45-minute hike through the forest, between streams and steep slopes, is necessary, until you find the wooden overlook that overlooks this natural wonder. Be sure to bring a bathing suit, since the water current has created a natural pool a few feet from the waterfall. The best time to go to Mazamitla to see the dense waterfall is during the months of October, November, and December.

After a refreshing swim, hop onto the safari truck that takes you past the best landscapes or rent a horse to explore them at your own pace. We recommend that you have your camera ready, because wildcats and owls have been sighted along the way. You can bring food for a picnic, but make sure to leave the area garbage-free before you leave.

The Cabañas Monte Verde (Monte Verde Cabins) organize excursions to the El Salto Waterfall. These excursions include other activities, such as hikes to see the Nevado de Colima (a snow-capped volcano), tours of the Valle de Juarez Dam, and visits to artisan bakeries to learn how to bake pan semita (semita bread) and oat bread, both of which are very typical of the region.

Excursions are also available in the afternoons to watch and enjoy the sunset in the Bosque de Hadas (Forest of Fairies), accompanied with a cup of hot cocoa and freshly baked cookies while you take in the scenery.
