If you are traveling on your own and prefer to join a tour for any reason, in this post I have selected the most interesting among la Huasteca Potosina tours that you can join from Ciudad Valles.


The best place from where to explore la Huasteca Potosina is Ciudad Valles a small city in the heart of the Huasteca Potosina, the perfect hub from where you can either enjoy the area on your own or join organized tours to the many spectacular waterfalls and crooked rivers.

Great tour, great views, and wildlife, great guides!
We really enjoyed this trip. The guides were fantastic. They gave great instruction to help you feel safe every step of the way. The views were stunning and we got to see some birds and wildlife. In the end, we had this great local meal at a house near where we finished.

First-time white water rafting
Arturo and the team were amazing on our white water rafting tour today. Always felt safe and they for sure know what they’re doing on the bigger rapids. The fun crew that really made our experience a memorable one. The views in the Tampaon river are amazing. I’ve never seen anything like it, and I would recommend to anyone looking for a new and adventure!

Love nature
Tamul was a beautiful place. Our trip with the huaxteca.com was excellent, transportation was clean, canoe trip was super fun, and the food was delicious. Our driver and guide were taking care of us all the time. We would like to go back to San Luis Potosí and book again more trips”.

Lovely day on the water
My brother, friend, and I did the one-day waterfall and water cave on a wooden canoe. We were picked up at our place and schedule that was very easy through WhatsApp. We were then driven in a van with 6 other tourists to their campgrounds where we changed and set on our way to the river. We were each given an oar and life jacket. They were nice enough to keep our stuff on their van (suitcases and all). We rowed down the river and stopped once to walk when the rapids got heavier and then once more for pictures near the waterfall. It was a pretty waterfall and all, but overly not that impressed. We then rowed back to the water cave where we got a snack bar and got a chance to swim. Finally they took us for lunch and it was delicious. They drove us back to the bus stop and on the way stopped to get sugar cane juice. They dropped us off very quick and conveniently. Overall, Antonio and Denise, our tour guides were absolutely wonderful. Antonio translated everything after saying it in Spanish and answered any questions we had. Lunch was buffet style and very good. They even helped accommodate us when we were annoying and asked them to get the life jackets back down when they packed them up on the roof. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone healthy enough to do a little climbing up rocks and jumping into the water cave.We also didn’t want to take our phones on the canoe, so they told us they can take pictures and buy them for a very good price! Would recommend if worried about getting phone ruined.
