  • Cola de Caballo

    Monterrey Things to Do

    Cascada Cola de Caballo literally means "Horse Tail Falls", describing how it looks from a distance. It's a pretty waterfall, and it's wonderful to see that natural elements are preserved in Mexico. The 30-peso entrance fee, however, is the first tipoff that this isn't going to be a Canadian-style adventure so much as a US-style marketing...

    Monterrey Things to Do

    This is one neat place, but has been damaged, to an extent, by graffiti... whatever the case, there are some caves visible on entrance to the park.
