Las Cascadas Mágicas
Part 5 - Magical waterfalls
It took 1 and a half hours of bone-shaking driving into the mountains to find the waterfalls but they were well worth the effort and damage to our bodies. It's not every day you get one of nature's spectacular spots all to yourself!

We started off the day with a full-blown Mexican breakfast, knowing that there would be nowhere to eat along the way
We soon found ourselves driving along a very dusty bumpy dirt road heading up to the mountains
A small church we passed along the way
This area was still very dry
A typical house along the way
Watched attentively by the locals - a dog and turkey!
A small wayside stand by the road
Driving deeper into the mountains.. here it was very green
Crossing a stream
Tree draped in lianas
We finally arrive at the waterfalls. It took 1 hr 10 minutes to cover 30 kms of bone-shaking dirt mountainous road
Beautiful lush rainforest all around
The first waterfall we saw
Th Bridal Veil waterfall
Looked so refreshing
Walking to the other waterfalls
Squeezing through the rock
Huge tree trunks
A waterfall all to ourselves!
No captions needed for the following photos... this is paradise!
Time to go back down... slow going, following the local "bus"
A satellite dish in the middle of the forest!
Breakfast on the beach at Santa Cruz - our last full day at the Bahias de Huatulco
This can only be Mexico!
Souvenirs in Crucecita
Funny sign seen
Weaving looms where they make rugs and mats and fabrics
Even the chairs!
Mexican-style prawn cocktail - delicious!!
Sunrise on our last day
We ate breakfast on the empty beach at Playa de Chahue
Huatulco Airport with its palm huts! The end of our holiday and back to Mexico City!
