Hierve el Agua Petrified Waterfall Tour 💦🟤

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 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 you’re in Oaxaca, edible crickets and critters.

After that, 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 (🚨Lunch not included 🚨). This is the perfect opportunity to taste authentic local cuisine.

On the way back we’ll stop with an artisan family dedicated to mezcal distillery, see an agave plantation, learn about mezcal’s artisanal making process and taste the different varieties of this versatile Mexican spirit.
