Huaxteca Potosina – Basic Info. (1/3)

Scroll down to content

 

I want to tell you about an unforgettable trip to Huaxteca Potosina. The natural marvels of the region are amazing, crystal water rivers and waterfalls, where you can practice extreme sports or relaxing strolls, bird watching in Sótano de las Golondrinas; cultural seeing in Xilitla and many options that adapt from the adrenaline junkies to the relaxed nature landscape tourist.

I´m going to tell you how we arranged our travel:

 

How to get there?

From Mexico City the driving distance is 8 hours. To me the best alternative is to take the ETN bus leaving at 9:45 pm you will get to Ciudad Valles at 8:00 am. Yes, the bus takes longer but you would be sleeping most of the journey. The return has the same schedule.

Cost: U$D 80 round trip.

You can also take a flight to Tampico, Tamaulipas and then take a 2:30 hour road trip to Ciudad Valles.

Accommodations

Ciudad Valles is a very small town so therefore has many affordable options to stay in. We stayed at the Hotel Valles ( www.hotelvalles.mx ) here is the link to check on pictures and location. The price includes breakfast and you can book it directly with the hotel or via www.huaxteca.com booking an excursion package. That´s what we did because the hotel was fully booked when approached directly.

Activities

www.huaxteca.com has different choices on activities and excursions, depending on how many days you´re going to stay. But be careful because in some cases the activities are more dangerous than they appear to be.

3 day package with hotel and tours cost: U$D 350 per person. (Some activities include snack or lunch)

We did:

Rafting

Visit the Surreal Castel of Edward James.

Waterfall jump

Visit Sótano de las Golondrinas

Rappel

We also got our pictures taken by a member of the travel agency, this is specially important on the risky activities where you can´t take pictures yourself such as Rafting, Waterfall jump and Rappel.

So far you know how to get there, where to stay and where to hire travel services; but the most interesting part is yet to come. In the next two posts I will tell you about my experience during the activities and how for the first time I was afraid for my life (no kidding). So you can chose wisely according to your level of expertise and trill thirst.
