San Luis Potosi in Mexico is now an adventure hotspot

Published on : Wednesday, May 17, 2017

San Luis Potosi in MexicoIn Huasteca in Mexico, water springs from the ground, giving origin to several rivers. They tumble over rocky ledges or plunge down from mountain sides. Water has also given birth to caves out of sedimentary rock, and some are so big that birds nest in them in thousands.

 
The part of Huasteca that’s in the state of San Luis Potosi has become a hotspot for various adventures like rafting, rappelling, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding and jumping waterfalls.

 
The highest waterfall jumping is a terrifying eight metres. Canoeing is another popular activity. A dozen or more brightly painted, traditional canoes called pangas contour the shore, some big enough to hold 20 or more people.

 
Tamul is the biggest waterfall in the state and almost twice as high as Niagara Falls at 105 metres. Huasteca also offers other kinds of adventures besides wet ones. The most amazing among them is the bird life.

 
But it’s the historic city centre, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site that makes San Luis Potosi a competitor for tourists. The old city is reminiscent of Rome, with magnificent churches everywhere. The church dedicated to Our Lady of Carmel is widely considered to be the most beautiful of all, with a pink limestone façade and a baroque interior with gold-gilded altars. Along with churches, San Luis Potosi boasts abundant green spaces. There are also interesting museums and theatres across the city.
