San Luis Potosi, Mexico

Tourism Information

Located in Mexico’s central region, the state of San Luis Potosi has fast-flowing rivers, mountain areas covered with lush vegetation and arid zones with abundant brushwood.

San Luis Potosi was founded in the colonial era during the mining boom. As you check out the streets and buildings of some of the old mining towns like Real de Catorce, you’ll realize that the magic and charm has been preserved.

In the city of San Luis Potosi, the state capital, you’ll see unique architecture and can visit museums with interesting collections of Teenek crafts. The Teeneks live in nearby towns, such as Santa Maria del Rio, where you can buy fine hand-made shawls, cotton garments and colorful embroidered items. Later you can visit the Gogorron National Park, where you can go hiking and mountain bike riding.

In San Luis Potosi’s Huasteca region, you can observe diverse flora and fauna at El Potosi National Park, or you can go cave diving at the Media Luna Lagoon, near Rio Verde.

In Ciudad Valles you can go diving in the Pozo Azul at Puente de Dios. Nearby, be sure to visit the Tamul and Micos waterfalls, ideal spots for fishing and rappelling. During your visit, we recommend that you experience the rush of paragliding at Sotano de las Golondrinas and enjoy the thrill of a rafting adventure down the Tampaon River. You’ll also want to check out the ruins at El Consuelo.
