Horsetail, a natural wonder in Monterrey

Horsetail Waterfall Water in Monterrey

Escape from the big city to see a fantastic meeting point with nature: the Cola de Caballo waterfall in Monterrey is waiting for you.


If you are a little lost when it comes to vacations, we bring you the best tours to know in Monterrey, capital of the state of Nuevo Leon. Known for its nearby gold and silver deposits, it is one of the most important financial centers in the country.

No doubt you have to stroll through the huge square so well known in the city, in addition to visiting the important cultural and religious buildings that compose it. On the other hand, you can’t miss the history museums that are scattered throughout the most important neighborhoods.

Another of the plans whose protagonist is a natural attraction will be the Grutas de García, located in one of the highest parts of Monterrey. They are believed to be more than 60 million years old, although they were discovered in the 19th century.

The Horsetail waterfall

The grandiose Cola de Caballo Waterfall is located in the magical town of Villa de Santiago, specifically in the Cumbre National Park. It has a drop of 27 meters and its name refers to the tail of a horse because of its tremendous resemblance.

It is a very nice tour where you can connect with nature and admire beautiful landscapes away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. If you are looking for more destinations where you can admire impressive waterfalls, we recommend a tour of Chiapas, what to see and what to do: there you can admire the waterfall of Misol Ha with about 30 meters high or the set of waterfalls of Agua Azul.

The Horsetail Route

Thanks to this route, you will be able to visit one of the neighboring magical towns in the territory of Nuevo León, just 45 minutes by car from the city of Monterrey. In addition, inside the park you can enjoy a variety of activities and buy beautiful souvenirs, handicrafts and other gifts to take back home.

If you decide to hire the tour for a different plan, it will include transportation from Monterrey, insurance and a guide specialized in the area (there are also tours without transportation). Normally the duration of the excursions is around 5 or 6 hours, depending on the agency with whom you make the tour.

The excursion will also give you access to other types of adventure activities, such as suspension bridges or zip lines, perfect for the little ones to let off steam. You will also love the viewpoint near the waterfall, where photographs are a must.

Alternate Destination

If you have already booked a room in one of the most exclusive and comfortable hotels in Cancun, we recommend a good alternative to make your list of must-see places to visit.

It will be the qualified staff of Riviera Maya Travel Agency who will be able to recommend options of tourist attractions in Riviera Maya, Cancun and Tulum at great prices.
