🧭 Things to do in Hierve El Agua

Breakfast at Comedor Citlaly

Before you arrive Hierve El Agua entrance, I discovered a secret food stop in 2021. It is a small local eatery called Comedor Citlaly and they only serve one thing: tacos de comal.

Tacos de comal are a traditional Mexican dish, particularly popular in the country’s southern region, including Oaxaca. Comal refers to a flat griddle or skillet used for cooking tortillas and other foods in Oaxacan cuisine.

hierve el agua oaxaca

Tacos de comal consist of small, freshly made corn tortillas filled with a variety of ingredients, which are then cooked on the comal until the tortillas become slightly crispy and the fillings are heated through.

The fillings for tacos de comal can include a wide range of options, such as marinated meats (like carne asada or al pastor), sautéed vegetables, mushrooms, cheese (such as Oaxacan cheese or queso fresco), or a combination of these ingredients.

Tacos de comal are often topped with fresh salsa, chopped onions, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime. This is a highly recommended stop and not everyone knows this spot so make sure to visit!

Swimming in the pools

Swimming at Hierve El Agua is one of the main attractions of this unique natural site in Oaxaca, Mexico. There are several mineral-rich spring pools at Hierve El Agua where visitors can take a refreshing dip and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

hierve el agua oaxaca

The water temperature in the pools at Hierve El Agua can vary, but it is generally considered to be cool or tepid, not hot.

The name “Hierve El Agua,” which means “the water boils” in Spanish, comes from the bubbling of the springs due to the release of gas, giving the appearance of boiling water. However, the actual water temperature is quite comfortable for swimming, particularly on a warm day.

Swimming at Hierve El Agua is generally considered safe, but visitors should still take some precautions to ensure a pleasant experience.

The best time of day to visit Hierve El Agua depends on your preferences and priorities, but generally, early morning and late afternoon are considered ideal times for a visit.

Visiting Hierve El Agua early in the morning, just after the site opens, offers several advantages. The temperatures are cooler, making it more comfortable for hiking and exploring the area.

Additionally, there are typically fewer visitors at this time, allowing you to enjoy the natural beauty and take photographs without large crowds.

Keep in mind that the drive from Oaxaca City can take around 2 to 2.5 hours, so plan accordingly if you want to arrive early in the morning.

Another good time to visit Hierve El Agua is late afternoon before the site closes. The temperatures start to cool down, and the light becomes softer, creating a beautiful photo ambiance.

Furthermore, as the day progresses, many tour groups and visitors tend to leave, meaning fewer crowds and a more serene atmosphere.

Visiting during these times will help you make the most of your experience at Hierve El Agua by avoiding the hottest part of the day and peak crowd times.

However, if your schedule doesn’t allow for a visit during these hours, the site is still worth visiting at any time of the day, as long as you’re prepared for the heat and potential crowds.

What’s the best month to visit Hierve El Agua?

The best time to visit Hierve El Agua regarding weather and crowd levels is typical during the dry season, which runs from November to April. During this period, you can expect pleasant temperatures, sunny days, and minimal rainfall, making it ideal for outdoor activities like hiking and swimming.

Of these months, December, January, and February are considered the most favorable, as they offer cooler temperatures and fewer visitors compared to the busier months of March and April.

These cooler months provide a comfortable climate for exploring the site and engaging in outdoor activities.

However, suppose you don’t mind occasional rain showers and prefer to visit during the green season (May to October). In that case, you’ll find lush vegetation and fewer tourists, making for a memorable experience.

Remember that rain can sometimes cause road conditions to deteriorate and make some trails slippery, so extra caution is advised.

In summary, the best month to visit Hierve El Agua largely depends on your preferences. Still, the dry season (November to April) is generally considered the most favorable time to visit for optimal weather conditions and outdoor activities.
