The Tixhiñú waterfalls in the State of Mexico are a natural paradise, perfect for extreme sports, such as rock climbing and rappelling. So, there isn’t a better place for this rappelling adventure, than this incredible place, departing from Queretaro.

The cracks and falls of this magical place are an open invitation for true adventurers. It is breathtaking spot with its air filled with adrenaline.

Tixhiñú is about 120 kilometers from Mexico City. And it lies in the northeast of the State of Mexico, in the town of Aculco. But, it is closer to the border with another state: Queretaro. Hence, we will depart from there. 

Aculco has such a strong relationship with water, to the core of its name, which means the place where water twists. Then, about 7 kilometers west of Aculco, we’ll encounter the hypnotizing Tixhiñú cascade, with a 15 meter fall, and majestic basaltic stone columns. Furthermore, this stunning cascade is surrounded by spectacular sceneries, brimming with trees and creeks.

We’ll pick you up from Queretaro and drive towards Aculco. Upon arrival, we’ll begin our rappelling adventure, which will be the best way to appreciate the unique flora and fauna. Thereupon, we’ll take another ride to another equally splendid cascade, for our second rappel.

The activities we’ll do on this program include small treks, 2 rappels and a cultural visit. And you can book it as a private tour, in which case one of our guides will take you and your group on exclusive adventures. However, you can also join an open group, and enjoy this magical place.

If you wish to come with us, don’t hesitate and send us a request. It would be our pleasure to guide you across the Tixhiñú waterfalls.
