Admire the scenic rock formations of Hierve el Agua, which resembles a frozen waterfall dropping from the cliffs. These calcified formations were built by mineral water trickling down the mountainside. Although their name means "water boils" in Spanish, the bubbling mineral pools are actually lukewarm and often even chilly. Take a dip in the springs, said to be beneficial for the skin, and enjoy the spectacular cliff views. Hierve el Agua is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.
