Ciudad Mier is surrounded by the Álamo, Bravo and San Juan rivers. The current strength of each one is regulated by dams, suitable for recreational activities near one of Tamaulipas’ Pueblo Mágico.

The Falcón dam corresponds to the Rio Bravo and precisely this water curtain marks the division between Mexico and the United States. It’s used to generate energy and irrigate crops, but it is also a popular sport fishing area.

Annual competitions are held here to catch catfish, mojarras, largemouth bass and carp. Another activity is boat rides to appreciate local flora and fauna. Frequently the water level drops, so the ruins of the Revilla city, known as Guerrero Viejo, emerge. This town was flooded to make way for the Falcón Dam, so one of the remains that can be seen is the San Ignacio de Loyola old church tower.

The Álamo River, which tributary runs near of Mier’s Pueblo Mágico historic center, is controlled by Las Blancas dam. Kayaking to admire huizaches is one of the most popular activities, as well as this sport's international competitions. There are also trails for mountain biking and camping areas. It even has a recreational park with pools and natural sulphurous pools.

Finally, El Azúcar dam is known for forming three islets: Los Marranos, Los Ahogados and Los Pájaros. A boat ride is needed to get to know them since they’re nesting areas for endemic and migratory birds. Among the highlighting species is the pink spoonbill, flamingo’s alike but smaller.
