Laying on white sands while soaking up the rays in sunny Mexico is a wonderful way to clear your mind and body of the hectic rush that is likely part of your regular routine. And once you’ve reached your desired relaxed glow, Mexico offers endless options from fine-dining and theater, to cliff-jumping and sky-diving — and everything in between. Peruse our favorite natural wonders to craft your itinerary of destination spots on your well-earned vacation to Mexico. Whether you prefer a hike to the top of the tallest cascades, or a swim at the base of nature’s most beautiful waterfall, we’ve put together a list of unmissable waterfalls in Mexico that you must include on your beach vacation.
Do you think grander is better? Do you think Niagara Falls is impressive, but wonder what the fuss is about for a waterfall that’s only 51 meters tall? Get ready to be dwarfed by the tallest, most shockingly sky-scraperesque waterfalls in Mexico, at the 246 meters of Cascada de Basaseachi, in Chihuahua, Mexico.
Way out in the Reserva Ecológica Villa Luz, just north of the “poison caves,” you’ll find the remote Cascada Villa Luz, with a beautiful jungle pool at the bottom, perfect for cooling off.
Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But you would be crazy to look away from the multiple crystalline cascades of Cascadas de Agua Azul. With the meaning, “waterfalls of blue water,” this multi-falls destination is one of the most popular in the country, and it’s not hard to see why.
Hike your way to the top, or ride down to the pools below for a leisurely swim! These absolutely unmissable natural wonders will be unforgettable in your vacation photo reel.
