  • This place is a must-see for anyone who visits Uruapan. It is relatively small for a National Park, but full of scenic views of the river and its countless cascades. It also provide a glimpse into...  more »
  • A great informative tour guide and good comfy walking shoes will make this a great trip. This was our second trip here, out last was 2006 and we self walked it! It’s a big difference having a tour.....  more »
  • Incredible park with lots of natural water flowing through! They have discounts for seniors and kids under 3 are free, otherwise an affordable 25 pesos for adults and 10 for kids is worth the visit. Quick to, zipline is only Saturday-Sunday; boletos are paid at the entrance. An okay price of 50 pesos per person. IMO best time to visit is anywhere from 9am-11am or 3pm-4pm because the walkways are wide open! Dont let the vendors distract you from the natural beauty rather be curious as to what they have. There was a friendly gentleman who carves swans out of wood. Such a talented man, dont be afraid to talk with them (in Spanish) they love to tell stories! There is also a busy playground for kids who can slide down a slide or play with new friends. You can park by the curb outside the park and walk about 400m to the entrance. It' free if you decide to opt out from paying the car washers. Otherwise you are technically paying for parking. Well maintained restrooms are at the entrance and scattered through throughout the park. If you feel like you will get lost there is also a map and signs guiding you through the main path to see the best attractions!
  • Was such a beautiful place to visit and explore during my amazing visit to Mexico. A very small entrance fee is paid, but don't allow yourself to miss out on this.
