It's OK is you have some spare days in Oaxaca. Otherwise, go trekking in the mountains and there are tours that arrive here after walking and that is way better that some of the tours. You don't swim here more than some minutes and the...More

I was desperate to go to Hierve El Agua, I thought it would be an almost virgin place with crystalline water wells. But it's full of tourists, kind of dirty and I'm not too sure is healthy to dive in. It is a great place...More

Probably the wrong time of year to be there - the waterfall had dried up and the cloudy sky took away some of the magic of the scenery. The water was a pleasant temperature to get in and swim - the infinity like feel to...More

A very good trip. For everyone. Dont forget your swimsuit and good shoes. The walk to the "waterfall" is great and a swim in the lake refreshing. The view from the natural infinity pool really stunning. There are little changing rooms.

This is possibly one of the most amazing things I've very seen! The rock is a perfect model of the waster that once ran down here, and incredibly beautiful yet unique phenomenon. The views into the valley are also beautiful! I didn't use a tour,...More

If you are looking for rough, natural, primitive adventure, "hierve el agua" is for you. 2 natural spring water pools and a million dollar view. 1:45 hours from Oaxaca city tru a toll road, except for the last 5 miles, which is a dirt road...More

We went on a day tour and only had an hour here (would have liked more time we rushed to see everything and to swim) nonetheless we loved it - a must see in Oaxaca!

This is truly an amazing place--I would hike down the trail that leads from the parking lot because there are many smaller pools down from the main ones and although you can't really bathe in them, the views are fantastic. We went with a tour...More

The cheapest would be to take a collectivo (shared taxi) from Oaxaca City to Mitla, then a shared van to Hierve El Agua. Note that the shared vans often go when they’re full, not according to a specific timetable.
