New for 2021 with Mex-ECO Tours; take a dip in the mountainside thermal pools of Tolantongo!
This itinerary has been adjusted to avoid large cities for the 2020 – 2021 season.
This tour takes us to the spectacular water world of Tolantongo – a box canyon in the Mezquital Valley of the state of Hidalgo, where you can relax in mountainside hot springs, wander into the caves and tunnels, or even get an adrenaline boost on the zip line or suspension bridge. Join us for 2 days of watery bliss, followed by visits to Mineral del Monte and Huasca de Ocampo.
Mineral del Monte, also known as Real del Monte, is a colourful mining town in the mountains of the state of Hidalgo. As well as being an important area for the mining of gold and silver, Mineral del Monte is also famous for its English pasties! This came about when an invitation was made to the English to bring more recent mining technology to the area in the 1820’s, and a company from Cornwall came to work here, bringing with it their famous Cornish pasties, and of course, football.
Another highlight of this trip is a visit to the Basaltic Prisms of Santa María Regla – a canyon formed by columnar formations of basalt rock, created by the slow cooling of volcanic lava. Enjoy a walk through this natural wonder, and the grounds of the Hacienda Santa María Regla.
