We had a few friends come to visit us here from Guanajuato City. So naturally, tour guide mode kicks in and we wanted to show them everything. Two of the things we decided on checking out was Mitla, a near by textile town which is also close to Hierve El Agua.
Hieve El Agua are natural rock formations created by fresh water springs. The water is full of calcium carbonate and other minerals. As the water runs down the cliffs, the calcium carbonate and minerals have been deposited over thousands of years to create two rock formations that used to be flowing waterfalls, now they are stunning natural sculptures. The smaller cascade "Cascada Chica" has two man made natural spring infinity like pools on top of it where tourists can swim and sun bake as well as smaller natural springs around them. The larger cascade "Cascada Grande" has a hiking track to the top of it and down into the valley below.
