Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla Suspension Bridge

Pahuatlán

Three kilometers (two miles) from Pahuatlán, the Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla suspension bridge is a real attraction. Not only because it is more than 50 years old, but also because it is a reference point for bird watching.

This road, built in the air, serves to communicate the Pueblo Mágico of Pahuatlán with the community of Xolotla, whose inhabitants belong to the Nahuatl culture. However, it has become a tourist spot because it is built on the bed of Pahuatitla River. In summer, the water current decreases, and natural swimming pools are formed.

The landscape is surrounded by lush vegetation that serves as a refuge for birds such as parakeets, hummingbirds, and hawks that fly over the suspension bridge. It is easy to appreciate them without binoculars since the bridge is 36 meters (118 feet) high and 60 meters (197 feet) long. We recommend that you take a camera to record the show, as well as a bathing suit in case you feel like taking a dip in the river. A few meters away is also the Velo de Novia waterfall.
