I had a great time at Huaxteca, 2 days of tours and our guides Antonio and Alejandro were Fantastic! Lets not forget our drivers as well Jose and Cesar. This was magical experience for me, I am ready to go back and experience new places.

I went to La Huasteca Potosina with my 2 best friends, during 4 days we enjoyed the magical places the staff showed us. By the way, what a great team of people! Super capable and organized, punctual and responsible. That was such a great experience! Would totally go back.

We had a great trip with Huaxteca to the Surelistic Garden. Many thanks to our guide Valeria Animas. Since we hardly speak Spanish she led us great in English and explained many things to us. It was very entertaining, instructive and funny! We would always book again with Huaxteca and can recommend the whole team! See you soon!


The guide Josue came to pick us up on time. Great start on our way to Edward James garden, we had homemade coffee and traditional sweet bread. On our way there Josue gave us a run down of the tour what to expect, tips, accident insurance information. Also gave us the highlights of the creator of the surrealists garden Edward James, all very interesting! When done we headed to town of Xilitla for a good lunch and half hour of free time, here we went for a walk to the plaza and visited the Leonora Carrington museum, small but well taken care of and many sculptures and paintings. Then we headed to the macaws nest, the trek there is down, Plato, then up again, grueling but well worth it to see the macaws going down to the abyss. It was a long day but we truly enjoyed it! All around, the guide and service was excellent.

I took a two day tour with my daughter that could not have gone better. Our tour of the Edward James garden and Sotano de las Huahuas was so well informed and our guides were very consciousness about being eco friendly. Our tour to Puente de Dios and the Cascadas with Josue, Paco and Lorena was phenomenal! They were extremely attentive to everyone's safety and making sure that we had fun and enjoyed ourselves. Overall all of our guides were very personable and experienced. I highly recommend

Absolutely amazing experience! I had a two day tour and was able to witness some of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Milton, Brenda, Josue, Paco and Lorena(our guides) were well informed,very personable and fun. They were all very attentive to our safety and making sure that we had a great tour. I highly recommend


The entire tour was excellent and perfectly planned, providing the right mix of guided activities and free time to explore the gorgeous pueblo mágico of Xilitla (including the new Leonora Carrington Museum - a definite must-see). The guides were knowledge and great fun to be around, and the tour felt personal and special. Highly recommended!


We went three times in a row with Huasteca Tours. Everything was fine, fun and the guides were always very helpful and friendly. We did Los Dios, Cascada Tamul and Xilitla. Of all the three things we liked Xilitla the most! The tourguide Steven was amazing, friendly, spoke English and we had a nice chat. The food is really good, they have vegetarian options aswell. I can totally recommend this tour operator and Hostel Pata el Perro too, that‘s where we booked the tour.

El K

This group of people or "familia" will make you remember all those times you spent your time and money at a terrible place as this is not one of those places. Every one of the tour guides are friendly with incredible stories. Choose el Rincon Huasteco for lodging, they happen to have the best restaurant in town. No ragrets!


I'm trip alone but the group of the expeditions is made up by 10 people and 3 good guide. We start the tour with the surrealistic garden and it was a mix of plante, nature and construction. I loved that place. After we visited a Huahuas, a beatibul cave where the the bird fly armonically. It's an experiance to do when you have the occasion. Gianluca
