Just a beyond amazing trip! The road was long and well worth it to see this natural beautiful river and waterfall( with its cave) , and then to relax in the pools with a great mountain view! By far the best trip from Mexico City

Great day! Enjoyed very much! Would recommend. Right amount of time spent at the activities - 4 hour each way travel, but this cannot be helped - comfortable transport.

It is a stunningly beautiful, relaxing and fun setting. I could not think of a better way to spend my last day in Mexico except to go for 2 or 3 days next time.

The most amazing place I have ever been. The waterfalls in the cave is something everyone should do once at least. I would go again tomorrow if I could.

The guide Paulina and the driver Victor were very caring, they gave a lot of information and made our day very relaxing! Thanks
