We did this day trip outside of a tour group. From the second class bus terminal you can catch a bus to Mitla and from there hop in a pickup truck once there are 10 or so passengers queued up. The ride was very bumpy! Once at the top it was an incredible sight and swimming was so lovely! The snacks and drinks near the entrance were all reasonably priced so dont be shy and spend some money while your up there!

This is such an incredible place. It's also very easy to get to because it's so well known. Highly recommend. Very clearly-marked trails (no guide needed). Some visitors treat the baths section almost like a public pool which can get pretty crowded. I came on a chillier day and was able to just enjoy the scenery since there were less people. Amazing photo ops. Be sure to check out the view from BOTH petrified falls. Lots of steps if that is a challenge for you.

This is an amazing place in the world, basically a geyser that has created a petrified waterfall over thousands of years. And, having said that, arrive early before the tour buses show up - any sort of solitude quickly disappears. I showed up very early in the AM (~8am) on a cloudy day, and it was magical. From there (with a guide), walked the several miles to Canyon Salinas, another magical/amazing place.

This was the highlight stop on our trip to Oaxaca. The petrified falls are one of only two in the entire world. (The other is in Turkey) They are absolutely stunning with small pools of water at the top. Beware of the long trip down the trail in order to see the larger of the two falls. It is a long way and and even longer back up due to the incline. Make sure you have good shoes for this. I saw women in sandals and shoes that would have been hazardous to wear on this trail. That being said, totally worth it!
