The Minas Viejas waterfall is one of the Mexico’s best guarded secrets. Located in the Huasteca Potosina, in the state of San Luis Potosi, this incredible place offers breathtaking sceneries and amazing options for canyoning and rappelling.

In the past years the Huasteca Potosina has become a famous place for adventurers to explore in Mexico. However, unlike other places in the Huasteca, like the Tamul or Cueva de Agua waterfalls, Minas Viejas remains a secluded and fairly quiet spot. Due to its location, the access is not as simple, as it requires to hike through the jungle. Therefore it is necessary to follow and expert and certified guide.

But once you reach it, you know you arrived into paradise. After walking through a trail with some steps at the end, it is easy to see the spectacular cascade that reaches over 50 meters of height. Then, you’ll start discovering the four natural pools filled with turquoise water. Each one has its own personality. And each one varies in depth, temperature and color.

On our adventure, we’ll descend rappelling on one of the sides of Minas Viejas, into a massive and vast pool. Thereupon, and after enjoying the best views of the area, we’ll get ready for the second part of our adventure: canyoning across Cañon de Micos. Here, we’ll swim, have fun and jump on 7 different cascades with a wide range of shapes and sizes.

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to explore Minas Viejas and Cañon de Micos. Let one of our certified guides show you this marvellous place in the Huasteca Potosina in Mexico.
