Around 4 km up a country cobblestoned road you reach the entrance and staging area of this nicely kept natural park in south Monterrey. From there you have a "standard" 1.5 km trek up the side of a tranquil creek and can take in the beautiful sites that include towering trees and interesting wildlife (bird-lovers will really enjoy this park)....

This place is beautiful. Get there early to avoid the crowds. If you are not fit, stay at home or go to Chipinque. You need to hike a lot to get to the waterfalls. To get to the most beautiful one you have to hike for at least 2 hours. There are no signs at all but you only need... More

It is a park that is half an hour from downtown Monterrey - ideal for walking, exercising and purely enjoying the beautiful natural landscapes. The entrance fee is 20 pesos but I'd recommend going early around 7-8 am to find a free parking lot near the entrance. If you are walking to reach the small waterfalls and wish to return... More

If you want a long hike and get a swim in waterfalls and big holes with water, the park is the place for that. It is a very nice place, i enjoyed it a lot with friends. The only negative point is that the first hike part, when it gets very steep, the floor is not adapted for that. People... More

This park is a great alternative to Chipinque, walk its 5Km in a open nature environment, if you're lucky, you can even take a look at some wildlife like squirrels or bears. You should avoid going on sundays if you want to really enjoy this place.

Keepers and owners should pay more attention to details - put signs on the way to get there - there is no information to get there by car. Signaling!! Not expensive at all and informs visitors. You need to be at the level of this amazing place - dont f**^#} it up!

It is a lovely natural nature trail through a green valley. It reminded me a bit of a little corner of the English Lake District. There is a stream that runs down the valley. Many butterflies depending on the season. It is some 20 km south of Monterrey city. Be sensible about the time you go. It does have opening... More
