Day 3 Ciudad Valles - El Naranjo - Ciudad Valles(201 km)

Visit the beautiful remote waterfalls of Minas Viejas, El Salto & El Meco on a trip into the heart of the Huasteca Potosina where you will have time to enjoy these beautiful limestone waterfalls with natural turquoise swimming pools to refresh yourself from the intense jungle heat. Have a pack-lunch along the way while you immerse yourself in pristine nature! Return to your eco-village for a delicious buffet dinner and a good night's rest.

El Naranjo is located in an extensive area of tropical and semi-tropical mountains and lowlands called La Huasteca after the Indian civilization and people inhabiting the region. The town of El Naranjo is in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Oriental.

  • The Cascada de Minas Viejas are a set of twin waterfalls that flow off a cliff into a pool below, located amongst lush vegetation in the Mexican countryside. Visitors can camp and swim, as well as rappel down the waterfall.
  • The 38 metres high El Meco cascade is at the end of the three-mile stretch of rapids below El Salto. A stairway leads to observation points and a hotel and restaurant are near the falls. Below El Meco the El Salto River becomes less turbulent, running peacefully through a valley of sugar cane plantations near the town of El Naranjo.
  • The waterfall is 70 metres high. A hydro-electric plant drains water from the river and the falls are often dry except during the rainy season in the summer. Below the falls, a canal returns water to the river and for three miles the El Salto River is a "wonderful Class IV blue water river."
