To connect with nature
30 minutes from the center of Tetela de Ocampo, in the community of Xaltatempa de Lucas, is one of the natural destinations preferred by the people of Puebla, the Aconco Waterfalls.
Aconco means ‘water pots’, it was named like that because one of the waterfalls is shaped like an upside-down pot. Another thing that we can notice is that the two waterfalls, one with a height of 45 meters (147 feet) and the other of 95 meters (311 feet) meet and form a kind of natural pool, perfect to enjoy a dip.
The depth is up to one and a half meters (5 feet), it also has low areas on the shore, ideal for small travelers.
For the more adventurous
In addition to enjoying nature, there are many activities that can be done, the most popular is to rappel down the waterfalls, with a descent of 75mts (246 feet), but if you do not want too much height, you can also try to descend 10mts (32 feet) first, or if you want to see the waterfalls from another point, the zip line is a good option, it is 160 meters (524 feet) long, and you will be able to see the panorama better.
If you want to explore around the waterfalls and learn more, you can choose hiking, there are guides who offer tours, or you can also take a horseback ride.
