Jalpan Dam

Jalpan de Serra

A pleasant path shaded by ahuehuete trees, on the banks of the Jalpan River, leads to the dam of the same name. After traveling a distance of about a kilometer and a half (about a mile), you access a natural paradise created by the hand of man.

The Jalpan Dam, located in the central part of the Reserva de la Biosfera Sierra Gorda (Natural Reserve of Sierra Gorda), became an important wetland that in 2004 entered the list of Ramsar sites, a distinction awarded for its huge and varied bird population (192 species have been registered), in addition to having become a site that receives migratory birds.

For this reason, the dam it’s ideal for observing birds such as cormorants, herons, thrushes and different species of pigeons, among others. But it's also perfect for those who hike, enjoy bike rides, or love to paddle on a kayak.
