Hierve el Agua Petrified Waterfall Tour ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐ŸŸค

We will pick you in your hotel at 8:00am and we start our adventure through sierra sur of Oaxaca state up to arrive at Tlacolula Market to get our traditional local breakfast. Tlacolula Market located 40 minutes away from Oaxaca City is one of the oldest continuous markets in Oaxaca and across Mesoamerica. There are sections for fruits and vegetables, baked goods, meats, chicharron, textiles, and crafts. And, because youโ€™re in Oaxaca, edible crickets and critters.

When you finish your breathtaking breakfast we go on our adventure to Hierve el Agua. The petrified waterfalls at Hierve el Agua were created over thousands of years. They formed as a result of the mineral-rich spring water trickling down the cliff face from above in a similar way that stalactites are formed in a cave. Hierve el Agua is one of two petrified waterfalls in the world. The other is Pamukkale in Turkey.
Depending on weather and availability we could have a refreshing dip in the swimming pools located on top of the cliffs.

After that, we stop for lunch in Mitla (๐ŸšจLunch not included ๐Ÿšจ) . Mitla is the second-most important archeological site in the state of Oaxaca in Mexico, and the most important of the Zapotec culture. Mitla still conserves natural techniques for the dyeing of garments, such as the use of fruits and flowers as pigments for the creation of an exquisite range of colors which can be appreciated in the visit to the workshops of these master craftsmen.

On the way back weโ€™ll stop at Matatlรกn with a artisan family dedicated to mezcal distillery, see an agave plantation, learn about mezcalโ€™s artisanal making process and taste the different varieties of this versatile Mexican spirit.
