Parque Nacional Barranca del Cupatitzio information
This incomparable urban park is just 1km west of the main plaza, but it’s another world. Tropical and subtropical foliage is thick and broiling with birds and butterflies. The river bubbles over boulders, cascades down waterfalls and spreads into wide, crystalline pools. Cobbled paths follow the riverbanks from its source at the icy-clear Rodilla del Diablo pool, near the park’s north end and water from hidden springs peels off the surrounding hillsides before flowing into the great river.
There are a few fruit stands and taquerías inside the gardens and there’s even a trout farm where you can net your own catch.
