Cascada de Basaseachi
Cascada de Basaseachi information
The dramatic 246m (806ft) Cascada de Basaseachi is the highest waterfall in Mexico, and is especially spectacular in the rainy season - it's worth the bumpy three-hour drive and every footstep of the five-hour hike there and back. Pools at the bottom of the falls are open for swimming. If that sounds too daunting, the views of the falls from up on the rim aren't so bad either.
The waterfall is part of the homonymous national park, south of which is the old mining town of Maguarachi, where there are delightful hot springs.
