Enjoy the most beautiful waterfalls of the Huasteca Potosina, beginning with the wonderful Meco waterfalls, and continuing with the breathtaking Minas Viejas waterfall, that has an impressive fall of 50 meters.

Just 177 kilometers (110 miles), or a 2 hour 30 minute drive from San Miguel de Allende.

Minas Viejas’ basin forms beautiful wells of turquoise blue surrounded by vegetation, which makes this place the perfect space for relaxing in contact with nature.

Aftewards, visit an observation area to contemplate the Meco waterfall, 35 meters in height, and located on limestone, which makes this place a unique attraction. It was here that a famous Mexican soap opera was filmed in 2007.

To finish this tour, visit the Salto waterfall that has a height of 70 meters, and is one of the most impressive in the rainy season since as it falls it creates an extraordinary breeze and huge natural springs ideal for swimming.

The Salto waterfall can only be seen during the rainy season because it has a hydroelectric plant installed in its own basin, which detours the water during the rest of the year.
