La Soledad Dam

Tlatlauquitepec

Another of the impressive hidden corners in the territory of this Pueblo Magico (Magical Town) is 22 kilometers ( 14 miles) above the federal highway Tlatlauquitepec-Mazatepec: La Presa de la Soledad (La Soledad Dam), the first in Mexico with a concrete arch-vault type curtain, which favors the resistance of the water's push and with a length of four kilometers (2.5 miles) it directs the waters of the Apulco River to feed La Soledad.

Let yourself be caught by the beautiful views surrounded by vegetation such as ferns, willows, and bamboos, the flow of the water and admire birds such as sparrowhawks and herons make it perfect for taking a boat ride from the piers located on La Soledad Bridge or to enjoy rich dishes based on trout and carp. You can also practice rappel since its curtain is perfect for this activity.

Behind the dam, you will find El Cañón de La Soledad (La Soledad Canyon), ideal to explore its giant rocks, waterfalls that create natural slides shows that will leave you speechless. If you walk for another 15 minutes, you will reach the El Tenexate waterfall hidden in the fog of the forest, perfect for rappelling down to 30 meters (100 feet) or trying your route by bike. If the day is not enough for you, we recommend renting one of their cabins.
