WAVEJourney’s Viv Chapleo travelled to the Mexican state of San Luis Potosi – Spending five days exploring the different regions, I was thoroughly invigorated by the scenery and varied adventures to be had. All the while being wowed by the hospitality and friendliness of the locals.
The 38-meter tall El Salto del Meco waterfall in the Huasteca Potosi is a site to be seen, and a destination not to be missed. El Salto del Meco and the river below are the most vivid turquoise color I have ever seen. The clarity of the water is amazing and the incredible jungle vegetation surrounding the area is spectacular.
Travellers with basic knowledge of Spanish will enjoy the area immensely, although those who do not have at least the basics down will probably find frustration with the lack of English spoken. Saying that, if you’re an adventurer at heart don’t be put off by your limited language skills as this is an adventure travellers paradise.
The restaurant overlooking El Salto del Meco serves delicious and traditional regional food at reasonable prices. In my mind there is nothing better than a great meal with a fabulous view.
There is even a 5-star eco-hotel, Huasteca Secreta, with bungalows situated along the river that flows from El Salto del Meco. The two-bedroom bungalows sleep 6-8, have two bathrooms (including outside showers), and are luxuriously outfitted.
Whether you laze around the table on the bungalow veranda, nap in a hammock or spend time cooling off in the pool, this peaceful and serene location is perfect for a romantic-getaway or family vacation.
The bungalows are footsteps away from the river and use of small boats is available for guests who want to explore. Or take a swim in the warm fresh water.
This bedroom can sleep 4-6 and is located on the main floor of the bungalow with doors opening up to the veranda.
The private, spacious and comfortable master bedroom is located on the second floor of the bungalow. Guests can also enjoy the pool and enjoy swimming-up to the pool bar for refreshments.
This is the perfect spot to visit if you are looking for a retreat from North America’s winter weather. Packed with culture, adventure, friendly people and wonderful food, this region of Mexico guarantees a vacation you won’t soon forget.
