Tonalá

In pre-Hispanic times it was one of Cihualpilli's favorite sites because of the beauty of its crystalline waterfalls framed by the extensive vegetation of the area.

According to the legend, the queen used to come and bathe in the waterfalls while the rest of the population did so downstream.

These bodies of water come from the Barranca del Rio Santiago (Santiago River Canyon), which is the first highest waterfall of all at 50 meters ( 164 feet). The second is 8 meters ( 26 feet ) high, making it ideal for base jumping or rappelling and the third is 45 meters ( 148 feet ).

If you are a nature lover, head to la Zona Arqueológica Plan del Guaje (Plan del Guaje Archaeological Zone), which is a protected natural area with an extension of 14 hectares ( 35 acres ) where you can do activities such as rappelling down from the waterfalls, canopy, cross the vegetation of tropical jungle and bushes by means of a zip line or even camping.

After so many physical activities, it is worth resting by going to the viewpoint that will allow you to have incredible views, go ahead and make a barbecue in one of its grills or enjoy something on its terrace.
