Hierve el Agua, Mezcal Tasting, and Teotitlan del Valle Tour from Oaxaca
100 reviews
Hierve el Agua, a set of calcified mineral deposits that have hardened to resemble cascading waterfalls, is one of Mexico’s most spectacular natural attractions. During this exciting combo tour from Oaxaca, enjoy free time to dip in the mineral pools before heading to a local mezcal producer for tastes of the powerful brew. Top off the day with a visit to the traditional weaving town of Teotitlán del Valle.

I’ve never been to a area that had a party or dance or concert every night Like the Zocalo in Oaxaca does. Lots of good restaurants surrounding the square and a dance party atmosphere in the evening. Locals and tourists alike hand out here.
