Amazing experience!! Beautiful scenery. The last 15min of the drive is down a gravel road in the mountains but it dead-ends into a little town. You can pay to park and then walk to the entrance where you pay the admission and they assign you a guide. You cannot go by yourself. The cost was $294MX for two people. You walk along the river, through the forest, to the end where there is a cave and small waterfall. It took about 45 min to get to the end, and we spent about 20 minutes there swimming and taking pictures. It is incredibly beautiful!! The water is ice cold and very blue!! Bring a towel and swimsuit, maybe water shoes because there are rocks. The hike was not very difficult but there were a few places you had to climb through a hole in rocks and climb a few stairs. It is mostly in the shade and not in the sun. Bring water to drink! Total it took almost 2 hours. There are a few restaurants and stores to buy food and drinks. Definitely visit Puente de Dios!

The road to Puente de Dios from the highway is only identified by one sign. Keep your eyes open for it. The road is gravel, worn and very jutted if it has rained a lot recently. You've got a good 5km on this road down the mountain, don't rush. Once there, you'll pay 30 pesos to park then 50 pesos per person to get in with a guide. The trail is split with two options: One goes to the top of the water falls, is a strenuous uphill hike that takes 1 hr to 1.5 hrs. This thing is no joke. But, once there, it is gorgeous. Second option is a level trail (thank goodness) that is only about a 15 minute walk that goes to the base of the waterfall. Hey you can see the whole thing either way, right? The shorter second trail requires you to walk through the river. Depth is maybe to your knees, but the current is strong. Bring tennis shoes or water shoes with good soles. Once at the fall, you can swim in the river, which is COLD, clear and super clean. Be careful, current is still strong. There's also a bridge of sorts attached the canyon wall where you can walk all the way to the front of the waterfall and jump off maybe 2 or 3 meters to the river below. Super fun! There are a few families selling food here near the parking area. Food is fresh and tasty.

We loved the Sierra Gorda and would have liked to spend more time, but for our trip, this was the highlight. As the rains had not started the flow of the river was gentle but the falls and river are surrounded by beautiful old-growth trees and as the path winds along you walk on a mostly dry path, occasionally crossing from one side to the other on little wooden bridges. The water is crystal clear and inviting. After a warm hike, the temperatures are wonderfully cooling so make sure you bring a swimsuit and preferably shows that you can get soaked - tennis shoes or water sandals. Bring your camera... this is a lovely spot for photography. And like the signs tell you, leave only your footsteps and please take any trash out with you, this place is pristine and let's all do our bit to keep it that way.

Getting to this attraction you need to junk from the federal highway and drive 20 minutes on a dirt road. Tiny of course.
When you get there the entrance organization os just disgusting. The obligatory guides don’t want to go, sitting there and acting they don’t see you and ignoring their coordinator.
The attraction it self is great 0,5 hour tour.
Make sure you understand you walk in the river.

I never seen so many butterflies in my life! It's just incredible!
I can't recommend it more than 5 stars or I will. The local guide are friendly and professional, is important to get one as some plants are poisoning and you may miss most of the details as for the lion shaped rock.
Perfect for family or solo adventure, you can even have a swim in those beautiful, limestone filtered waters.

Seemingly in the middle of nowhere this river experience is fantastic. Water is crystal clear and warm. Underground cavern is every bit as nice as Blue Grotto in Capri, except you are in the water not in a boat. It is a good climb back up out of the valley when you are finished.

Lots of visitors the day we went. An easy walk up the river bank - we were told to wear trainers but there were locals in flip-flops with babies doing it. I wish that I had taken my swimsuit - wonderful wild swimming in the pool under the limestone arch.

It is a really beatiful and magical place. Completely worth it. The walk is about 2 or 3 hours, very accesible, there is only one part where the feet will get wet. Very easy hike and a great reward to arrive to Puente de Dios.

Swimming in the waterfalls, swimming in a cave, this place was a complete surprise. Jumping from 3,5 or 8 meters from the rocks to the waterfalls!
I need to come back

A must go place while in Jalpan, the walk to the bridge, crossing the river, crossing the small cannon and arriving to the bridge, which is like a flooded cave, is just gorgeous. Totally worth seeing.
