Located in the Huasteca Potosina- absolutely beautiful and easy to get to. No need to make long hikes I order to get a view. This is a great place to visit even for those people with limited mobility. Highly recommend taking a walk on the...More

Due to the season the water wasnt as clear, still nice though. Try to visit when it not raining as water isnt as clear as it seems in the picture. Also sometimes there is no access due to the increase in water level.
