Not everyone can access to the depths of this abyss that seems to have no end, although it is really shocking to be in front of this natural corner, one of the biggest attractions of the place is the spectacle created by the thousands birds on their way out to Tamaulipas in search of food. This you can witness at the dawn and shortly before the nightfall.


To continue collecting beautiful landscapes, we will continue with the Cascadas de Tamasopo, a place to escape the hustle and bustle, it is sure that the only noise you will hear is the falling water.

Men have not affected this place; there is only a small restaurant with homemade and traditional food.

This natural spa has three waterfalls of approximate 15 meters height, which form four pools of turquoise blue water of different tones that invite anyone to spend hours swimming in them.

In addition, since you are in Tamtoc, you must try its gastronomy, such as the Huasteca enchiladas, the caldo loco, the bocoles, the acamayas, the bolim, the pemoches, the conchas and, of course, the traditional zacahuiles, immense tamales that reach up to 5 meters long. These are prepared with martajada corn, mixed with lard, ground chilies with spices, salt and filled with large pieces of raw pork. Often, they can add turkey cut into pieces.


Already surprised? Around 50 to 150 people can eat from a single zacahuil, depending on the size of it. This dish is served at events such as weddings, religious parties, XV years or you may find it in the markets of nearby towns, where they sell it in portions.
