Talvez se mudassem a Logistica do passeio seria melhor. Pelo que pesquisei, a maioria das operadoras de turismo deixa Hierve del água para o final, este passeio, fez o mesmo. Tivemos uma manhã bem longa na fábrica de Mezcal e na de artesanatos. O almoço foi num restaurante Ok, com buffet sem muitas opções. A tarde fizemos um tour por Mitla (mais ou menos 1h), lá por 16h que fomos para Hierve. Ou seja, chegamos lá quase que no crepúsculo. Chegamos no nosso hotel eram 20h30... Apesar disso tudo, os lugares da parte da tarde salvaram o dia e merecem ser conhecidos.

We had booked the trip through get your guide. What was a mistake, as we found out afterwards, we paid twice as much as other travelers. In addition you have to argue with admission and costs for lunch of about 300 pesos pp It was a very interesting day.
