Tulimán Waterfall

Zacatlán

The main reason to explore the Tulimán recreation center, on the outskirts of the Pueblo Mágico of Zacatlán de las Manzanas, is its 984-foot waterfall.

The waterfall is naturally divided into three tiers by the amount of water and the strength of the current; these naturally-occurring tiers have been used as overlooks and hostels. There is a zipline available on one of the levels and archery is on offer on another level. However, hiking down trails covered by ancient trees and hay is, by far, the preferred activity. Hostels offer food and drinks, so you can recover your strength.

On your hike, you will discover crystalline streams fed by the Tulimán waterfall. Take a moment to admire the way these streams snake their way through imposing glens. Papalot is another of the forest's secrets: an ancient tree with a hollow trunk able to accommodate 15 people.

One day is not nearly enough time to explore the entire recreation center. There's no need to worry. You can take all the time you need, since there are cabins on offer, in case you need to spend the night. Their amenities include fireplaces, piping hot water, and a designated space in which to light a campfire.

If you're eager to visit more waterfalls, make the most of your trip to Zacatlán by visiting another Pueblo Mágico in Puebla: Chignahuapan. It is located about 10 minutes away and is well-known for the Salto de Quetzalapan Waterfall, as well as for its artisanal sphere-making workshops.
