HIERVE EL AGUA, Oaxaca, Mexico
Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world, you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small, and in return, life and travel, leaves marks on you. Anthony Bourdain
Hierve el Agua is a set of natural rock formations. The two rock cliffs rise between 50 and 90 metres from the valley below. The white rock formations look like waterfalls. They are created by fresh water springs that are over-saturated with calcium carbonate and other minerals. As the water falls over the cliffs, the excess minerals are deposited, much the same as stalactites are formed in caves.
The waters are reputed to have healing qualities with their high mineral content.
There are two natural pools and two artificial pools in which visitors can swim.
