This Pueblan town is named after the mountain with an exposed limestone surface. Tlatlauquitepec means “mountain that burns or turns red” in Nahuatl. It’s a must for spelunkers, as it’s full of caves. Three ziplines (measuring 262, 492, and 656 feet long) let you soar with Tlatlauquitepec in the background. In the foothills of the mountain you can go mountain biking on trails that lead to the swimmable Poza Verde.
Explora is a tourism agency offering tours of Cerro Cabezón hill, Cascada de Puxtla waterfall, and Presa de la Soledad dam. There’s also the Centro Ecoturístico Bosque de Niebla, an ecotourism center where you can go horseback or bike riding. Or, just watch the sea of clouds over the cloud forest at sunrise.
