Information for the Tourist
Information for the tourist or expeditioner.
Huaxteca.com gives you the warmest welcome and thanks you for the opportunity that you give us to share the enjoyment of the natural beauties and adrenaline that are included in the Potosinan Huasteca. A Rule overseen by the Norma Oficial Mexicana (official Mexican Norm) NOM-011-TUR-2001 for Adventure Activities. Adventure Tourism are trips that have a purpose to perform recreational activities associated with challenges imposed by nature.
The Huasteca Potosina
The Huasteca Potosina is an area with a very warm climate for most of the year, with an ecosystem of low deciduous jungle, and that still has important populations of felines, such as the puma (cougar) and the jaguar, and a habitat for thousands of species. This requires that we adopt a conscience for conservation to allow future generations the enjoyment of the environment, with the existing conditions, or in better conditions. The Geography of the state of San Luis Potosí has a staggered formation, and represents the lowest level, in other words it is very close to sea level in the majority of its spots, having a few exceptions such as in the case of Xilitla.
