Surrounded by the jaw-dropping tropical scenery of the Huasteca Potosina, the remote hillside town of Xilitla (hee-leet-la) is an agreeable spot notable for its precariously steep streets and proximity to Las Pozas, the British eccentric Edward James' fantastical jungle sculpture garden. Built just outside the town in the 1950s and constantly embellished and expanded over the following decades, Las Pozas is still the main reason for most people to come here.
