Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve

Jalpan is surrounded by this great natural biosphere reserve. That means a world of adventure awaits that you can explore via ATV, by bike, or on foot. Here are just some of the things you can see:

Cueva del Puente de Dios. An incredibly long cave following the course of the river that feeds the reservoir. If you like this cave, there are several more to explore: Cueva del Diablo, Cueva del Aguacate, and Cueva de la Diosa Cachum. Get a professional guide to take you.

Pinal de Amoles. Cool off in the Escanela River and the Chuvejé Waterfall.

Arroyo Seco. Here, where the Santa María and Ayutla rivers converge, the crystal clear water is great for swimming.
