Nature, beautiful landscapes in Mexico

One of the most spectacular natural landscapes on this list is La Cascada de Cola de Caballo (Horsetail Waterfall) in Monterrey. It is located in the Cumbre National Park, in the magical town of Villa de Santiago.

Its particular name refers to its resemblance to the long, straight hair of a horse’s tail. It has a drop of no less than 25 meters. The views are breathtaking from any point, so bring a camera and/or cell phone to immortalize them.

Other beautiful natural landscapes that we recommend you to visit are the different beaches of Cancun and the natural reserves. Many people decide to visit this region of the Mexican Caribbean because they know that the beaches are out of this world, they do not disappoint.

The most famous are the dolphin beaches, where you can even see this friendly animal in the mornings. You will also find in many guides the Forum Beach, one of the most popular beaches and where you can practice a wide range of activities. The North beach in Isla Mujeres is also one of the best known, perfect for snorkeling.

We continue this list of Mexican natural attractions by highlighting Cuatro Ciénagas (Four Swamps) , a magical town in the state of Coahuila. A visit to Las Playitas is a must, a beach in the middle of the desert that will leave you speechless.

But if you really want to see a natural landscape that seems unreal, we recommend hiring a guided tour of the Gypsum Dunes. These are spread over more than 800 hectares of white sands with different shapes. It is believed that there are only a couple of such formations in the world.

We continue with El Cañón del Sumidero (Sumidero Canyon) National Park, in Chiapas. There you will find more than 20 hectares full of vegetation where you can practice a lot of activities, as well as see the best views of Tuxtla Gutiérrez.

It is recommended to take the tour, as it will take you through the different viewpoints whose route is estimated at 15 kilometers more or less. These are perfect to admire the dense nature, the river and leave all worldly worries behind.

We finish this list with the wonderful Huasteca Potosina, in the state of San Luis Potosi. There you will find the Sierra del Abra Tanchipa Biosphere Reserve. Its importance lies in the fact that it is an area full of biodiversity.
