Such a sight to see, there's food and drinks nearby, you can swim. I'd recommend a day tour, they take you to 6 locations including this one, and while crowded, it is an amazing tour. Can get one for $180mxn -$300mxn so make sure u...More

Very interesting place, a nature display including botanic variety. A little scary if you have small intrepid kids, and not a place to go if you have knee problems, but other than that is worth the short trip

Here was an area where calcium-rich water flowed over the edge of a cliff. Prior to falling, it left pools of strange shapes and sizes. There was a 70-80 foot fall of and "frozen" water on another cliff. There were a few springs bubbling up,...More

Enjoy the view and hiking a little bit to enjoy the complete site. Don't stay only in the water which you can enjoy swimming by the way! Please note that if you come by car from the highway, the final 5km are really poor quality...More

We hired a cab (1000 Mexican pesos) for going to hierve el agua, a mezcal distillery and to see a 2,000 year trip in Tule town. I understand group tour charges around 600-700 Mexican pesos. We arrived by 9:00am. There are two admission fees: 10...More

The cheapest would be to take a collectivo (shared taxi) from Oaxaca City to Mitla, then a shared van to Hierve El Agua. Note that the shared vans often go when they’re full, not according to a specific timetable.
