Hierve el agua (2)

Hierve el Agua is a system of petrified cascades of natural origin formed for thousands of years product of water runoff with a high content of mineral. It is located in the town of San Isidro Roaguía, municipality of San Lorenzo Albarradas, state of Oaxaca, Mexico, near the archaeological site of Mitla. It is also a place of archaeological interest, as it has a complex system of irrigation and terraces built by the Zapotecs about 2500 years ago. The water has a temperature of about 24 degrees Celsius, the spring that gave rise to the waterfalls forms a natural spa of thermal waters, the crystalline pools of water arrive until the end of the horizon allowing you to blend in with the surroundings and enjoy from this high place the beauty of its mountains and valleys.
