  • It is well to know and to go hiking, although there is more trade, they have well maintained the waterfall area.

  • This lovely waterfall and surrounding park/picnic area is a little ways out of Monterrey proper, and the road off the main highway is pretty slow going. But if you want to have a picnic and/or a strol...  more »
  • Nothing as relaxing as heard it running and falling water... exceptionally clean. Suggestion, not to park in the hotel, there is a parking lot near the entrance wider and cheaper. If you don't want to go walking there is economical transportation (carts). You can make a roast as there are multiple racks.

  • La Cascada Cola de Caballo for me was definitely worth the trip from Monterrey. I was staying at the Fairfield Inn near the airport and to get here, go for lunch, and then get dropped off at El Paseo de Santa Lucía cost 1600 pesos (the hotel said 1500 pesos to just go to the waterfall and then return to the hotel, but the cabby had to wait for me to eat also, so 1600 pesos). The entrance fee for the park as of April, 2017 was 40 pesos. If your taxi driver accompanies you to take pictures of you, expect to pay for him as well. It's not a huge, roaring waterfall or anything like that. It's just a stream, really, but it's a beautiful sight in a very beautiful area. The pathway to get there was paved and all the safety precautions I normally don't see in Latin America were there (railings to prevent people from falling in). There's an option to get there by horse, but it'd be a very short ride (maybe 5 minutes), and really only for the lazy or for a photo opportunity. If you speak Spanish, the cabby will also make other suggestions of places that you can visit along the way. Chances are that he really wants you to see how beautiful Monterrey is because so many people come here for business and never take advantage of seeing the sights around town. So if you're visiting Monterrey, make sure you check this place out! You won't regret it, unless you don't like nature. ;)
  • Great place to cook a barbecue. You should visit very soon.
  • Beautiful place, is better go early, at evening is too full of people
  • Improved a lot since last time I was here.
  • Nice place to have a picnic or carne asada with the family
