Our old grandparents kept intimate dealings with the land. For them the earth was a living being that felt and loved them. They maintained a mother-children relationship. As all living beings, earth has parts more sensitive than others.
Unquestionably that in the valleys of Oaxaca emanates from the depth of its bowels, an energy that radiates to all living beings and connects with the sky. Ancestral divine and mystical bridge. Oaxaca is a place where earth and sky kiss. Hierve el agua is an essential place for this love affair between man, earth and the universe.
Indeed, Hierve el Agua located a few miles past Mitla in the road to Ayutla in the Mixe region, is a petrified waterfall, sacred temple for the ancient Oaxacan. At the top of a mountain, is a sulphurous water springs system, although the name is boiling the water, the temperature of the liquid is warm, however, coming out of the spring it seems as if it was boiling.
A series of dams have been built, where the water starts its descent and form splendid color water pools, saturated with minerals.
