It has a big lake with beautiful colours and an overpriced boat trip. The thing I liked the most was the watchtower in the middle of the jungle.
It was fun to climb but there was not really much to do and you might better invest your time in many other local attractions.
Tapalpa, Jalisco, Mexico, are well known villages because of their great magical mysticism of a small town, away from the big city of Guadalajara and the big cities, which makes Tapalpa a perfect place to rest for a weekend of ecotourism. In this village you will find inns, and small hotels to help make your trip an unforgettable experience. You'll enjoy visiting Picnic, a grill where you can find typical Mexican food. Ecoturismo in one of the purest expressions in Mexico and the world. Here,among other activities, you can camp, rent cabins or climb the rocks, go rappelling, horseback riding. I can only say that you will enjoy it, because I'm from Guadalajara. But even so, it's strange that such a relaxing place as this is so close. Visit Tapalpa and you will not regret it.
I love the Sierra Gorda, I have already visited it four times and never get tired of going to discover its new corners. The experience is for your senses, when you come by the road you find these cliffs that remind you of infinity; listening to the silence makes you more in touch with you and the transcendental.
An unforgettable experience ... bioluminescence, magic, and mangroves ... warm and friendly service, and I know we'll be back. The best way to get there is from the port, where a combi will take you to Zapotalito. It takes about 30 minutes, and costs 10 pesos.
St. John is half an hour from the state of Mexico, and is a beautiful coniferous forest where you can see the Iturbide dam. Go to Otomi Ceremonial Center and a trout rcoiris, or go to an electronic music event find the atmosphere blanketed with white music, and smell the rich pine as the wind whispers.
Nature Reserves in Parque nacional Lagunas de Montebello
A beautiful place, where the lakes are named according to the color that gives it the same depth of the lagoon, in a day you can go all the lakes and stay at a nearby reserve where prices are very cheap, and take the canoe tour, where you cross the largest lagoon from side to side.
This national park is home to the source of the Cupatitzio River in a place known as "devil's knee". If you like to take walks surrounded by lush vegetation or sit on a riverbank listening to the water falling on the rocks, this is the place for you. Cupatitzio River forms waterfalls and small clear water reservoirs. If you're lucky, you can see the risk-taking divers from the treetops or rock formations or children telling the legends of the park. You can also visit the rainbow trout farm, feed or fish them for later, or enjoy a rich macadamia trout in the restaurants located around the park. Upon leaving, enjoy a delicious gelato, roasted corn or buy handicrafts and sweets from the region.
Seated at the end of the Mexican Yucatan Peninsula, where the Caribbean is mixed with the Gulf of Mexico is a truly lovely place. It is not far from the tourist hustle and bustle of Cancun and the Riviera Maya, but when I was there four years ago, the natural essence remained and I hope it stays that way. This reserve consists of a lagoon, surrounded by mangroves, with a wealth of waterfowl. The first thing we did was visit an authentic Mexican village filled with brightly colored houses. In the spring the water was clear, a turquoise, emerald. The fishermen fed his fish remains to the gulls and pelicans surrounding the boat and it was possible to go by boat to an island to see the flamingos, but we did not have time for the venture. We visited the reserve's headquarters to orient ourselves a bit, and I was surprised to see iguanas walking quietly through the grass, or laying in the sun. The guard advised us to take a bridge to cross the river and reach the mangroves and to head to the beach after. On the railing of the bridge a pelican seemed to be posing for photographers. We saw two species of mangrove trees typical of tropical saltwater areas that are extremely important in the defense against coastal storms and hurricanes. From there we arrived at the beach, an absolutely beautiful oasis surrounded by palm trees, with turquoise-colored water. Seaside pelicans and cormorants rested and we even noticed a couple of frigates soaring through the air. They are large, black seabirds, but the male has a red bag next to the crop that can be inflated to attract the female. We found an authentic beachside snack bar we enjoyed lunch of fresh grilled fish, pancakes and several bottles of Mexican beer. On the way back, we stopped at a pond where we saw herons and roseate spoonbills.
Situated about two hours away from Tulum you'll find another famous archaeological site that's in the Riviera Maya. It's the town of "Javier Rojo Gomez", more commonly known as Punta Allen. Punta Allen is part of the Sian Kan ecological reserve, which boasts such things as protected species in their natural environment, such as dolphins, turtles, pelicans, lizards, in an area of mangroves and small bays of turquoise water. In this book there is no electricity or asphalt roads, so the accommodation is in rustic cabins palm-powered solar or wind.
The Biosphere Reserve of Celestun is in a privileged position to be habitat of many birds and fish. The best of the visit is to spot the colony of flamingos migrating here from March to September to feed on shrimp larvae. It is known that the flamingos have a pink plumage because they eat the shrimp larvae. You can book a boat excursion on the river at the entrance of Celestun or on the beach. If you go in the morning, the tour is cheaper because it is easy to find people you can share the boat with. We went in the afternoon and at that time there were no other people and we had to pay 700 pesos for a tour of about an hour. Celestun Beach is the nicest we saw in Mexico and worth going to spend the day there. I can also recommend to swim and eat fresh fish ceviche there.

Live the adventure with underground rivers and natural beauty, that are not to be missed. Nature is at your fingertips and adrenaline is flowing out. The places have no comparison, you just have to decide to come for the fun that awaits you in Mexico.
Millions of butterflies arrive at the Morelia, Michoacan every year during their migration from South America to the United States. To visit the butterfly sanctuary, you have to track the butterflies' location. You'll be walking for about an hour, or an hour and a half in the forest, and suddenly they'll appear. Patchy clouds, tree branches are bent by the weight of such a butterfly, is an awesome place. Area is a UNESCO heritage site
The Canyon of Jimulco has finally become one of the country's protected areas. It's a very good place to camp and shoot arrows (great for arrow head searching), and it's a very special place for the contrast it represents. In order to get there, you have to travel several kilometres in barren desert, but when you reach the canyon, you find a seasonal river that has beach-like sand and is an excellent place for camping.
Well, I have to say, this is a really beautiful place for those who like traversing places on foot. There's a place where you can rappel and everything. There are also cycling races, etc. It's great haha. It's like a water park, but better because of the plants and flowers. Well at least I'm totally with you dpresiones and locked most of the time I felt great ...
