Cola de Caballo~Santiago, Nuevo Leon

Somethings don't require many words.











Traveling to Monterrey again for the weekend we explored south of Monterrey & visited Cola de Caballo. Just to the south Monterrey on a 2-lane highway that winds through small villages and low hills, we stayed at Hacienda Cola de Caballo. The nearby waterfall gets its name from the resemblance the tail of a horse. The falls are formed by a river that flows out of the Sierra Madre Oriental, forming a spectacular curtain of water. The area is part of a large ecosystem that is protected by the state. From our room not only were the views wonderful but we could relax to the sounds of thousands of birds. The hotel is set above the heavily forested canyons, cascades & winding trails that are part of the Cumbres National Park System.

Natural Wonders in Mexico!
