Highlights near Oaxaca

Reflections in natural infinity pools

Beyond Mitla is the beautiful site of Hierve el Agua: natural mineral pools and petrified waterfalls. We took a collectivo taxi up the windy road from Mitla, paid the entrance fee and spent two hours hiking, swimming and taking in the breathtaking scenery. Bring your bathing suit to cool off in the pools or do some sun salutations atop the petrified falls.
