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, Oaxaca Edition.

It is not necessary to take a tedious group tour, for a lot of money. The bus is 20 pesos.go to Mitla and immediately go on, transferring to another team, which will take you to a place costing 50pes, the road through the pass is very extreme. if the problems with the spine-do not advise. Go to the archaeological park, too interesting.
Súper recomendado, tiene unos paisajes maravillosos, mucha naturaleza y muy limpio, albercas naturales y muy económico more »Super recommended, it has wonderful landscapes, lots of nature and very clean, natural pools and very economical
Awesome experience. The 'waterfalls' and the the hills all around provide a great view. The natural infinity pool is not warm but once you're in its pretty refreshing.
Spectacular views and refreshing water pools to relax and take it all in. Some areas of the rocks are very slippery, so walk carefully around those parts. It was very busy on the afternoon that we went as there are many group tours that go each day
