Escanela River

The Sierra Gorda gives us unforgettable natural scenery like those created by the Escanela River: Cañón de la Angostura and Puente Dios. A hike down the path that runs along the Cañón de la Angostura will take you by gorgeous swimming holes, natural stepping stones across the river, and the colossal tree roots that drink from the river’s edge. At the end of the trail, you’ll come to a cave called Puente de Dios. Here, a curtain of white water falls into a pool of turquoise-colored water below. From wherever you stand, you’ll see dripping stalactites, small pools carved out of rock, and moss gardens.
