Edward James sculptor garden, Las Pozas, Xilitla

4.7
#1 of 17 in Parks in San Luis Potosi
Feel as though you are stepping into a fantasy world at Edward James sculptor garden, Las Pozas, located deep in the Huastecan jungle. As one of the most impressive Surrealist art displays in the world, the area blends whimsical architecture made of concrete with natural elements like waterfalls and ponds. The lush area was the vision of creator Sir Edward James. Four-story-high sculptures tower overhead as you wind down steps, ramps, and bridges. Take your swimwear if you like; you can escape the humidity and cool off in one of the refreshing pools.

    A place that you can pass without visiting, is nothing nice, architecture and nature, you will notice better elsewhere. The entrance to the place is expensive for what it is really worth.

    It is a surreal place, should not try to understand it, should try to see it as if it were part of nature to enjoy it fully.

    Beautiful place, never seen a more elaborate place and imaginative. This a perfect place to lose track of time and also to leave your logic at the door. Garden of Edward James.

    Awesome place. Try to avoid high season and get early, otherwise you may spend 3 or 4 hours in line waiting to get in. They allow a max of 800 people inside the garden, so you got to wait for people to exit to be able to enter. Don't forget your bathing suit!!! Not a good place for toddlers or disabled people.

    Definitely worth a visit. The tamales I ate just up the dirt road was very tasty. Cooked in the ground for around eleven hours. It was the biggest tamales i have ever seen, and my favourite dish in Mexico.
