  • The truth get are not difficult, almost halfway between pinal de amoles and jalpan de serra this deviation to san pedro escanela, a road of approx. 5 km (15 mins by car) but in very good condition, will take you to the place where begins the fascinating (by the way has a cost, I think $40 per person (, free time), a guide will take you to this fantastic place. futuristic a few kilometers along the River, you've gone 10 minutes and I assure you that you'll already be surprised, beautiful postcards and maybe at the end the magnificent and beautiful "bridge of God".

  • Approximately 15 minutes from Pinal de Amoles heading to Jalpan is access to Rio Escanela, highway are 15 min drive from descent to the River, the dirt road is in good condition in what it should be. I went 2 years ago and two weeks ago and there are many positive changes in the workplace, there are places to sleep, eat and camp near the river. We were 2 adults and a child of 6 years for a cost of 130 pesos, our guide, 12-year-old Camilla took us along the path. It is totally beautiful and water level perfect for carrying children since in season of rains even for adults it is complicated by what tomenlo into account. Dios bridge is wonderful and the sound of water, birds and others make travel an unforgettable experience. Take change of clothes or something quick-drying since you're going to get wet!

  • For starters the way to arrive is unpaved, the truth don't it feel so ugly to as they told it to us and you do approximately 15 minutes from the road to the camps, be careful when you go to merge from the road since the deviation is in a curve and is a bit dangerous. The cost of recovery is $130 pesos (from 1 to 5 people) and if it is a group of more than 5 extra $20 pesos for each person are therefore more economical to go in group. You can go with or without a guide for the same cost, I recommend not to take it so you can walk at your own pace and stop and take pictures without pressure because the guides make the short trip. It is a journey of approximately 45 minutes (depends on how much you stop), the road is on the banks of the river and it is safe enough, except for the bridges and stairs (are not many). The walk is not heavy and most of the time gives you the shadow. Already in bridge of God you can take pictures but they advertise that you can only stay 20 minutes in that part. Allow entry with your dog, but personally I do very safe down stairs. Water is quite cold (cold truth) so I do not recommend that you goals. However, the water is very clear and very beautiful landscape. It is worth to go. After leaving the premises where sold beer and food as gorditas and tacos to go. I was after Easter and there were many people, but just recommend to go early (10 am) and a half a day there is more flow of tourists.
