Mexico - Off the Beaten Track - Tamasopo
and never stop.
Just recently, while I was in the USA, my son John and his children Matilda and Sebastian along with parents and classmates made the trek up to Tamasopo for a camp out. What a fantastic time they had.
Located in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Oriental, the town is located at 1200 ft above sea level. The surrounding mountains are about 5000 ft above sea level. What a surprise and delight it was for everyone
to see and stay in this place. An enchanting area in a lush rain forest.
The facilities there allow for tent camping or there are cabins to rent as well. Some of both was done by the group.
Now, my son sent me the cutest, most adorable photos of the children along with all of their school friends in the waterfalls and playing. I've tried every way I know to be able to post these photos to this blog. I give up! I tried for over 30 minutes yesterday and it just isn't going to happen.
Need to get the computer guru over here to show me what I'm not doing right!
Enjoy this post. Plan a trip. Read more on the internet about this rich ecological biosphere area.
I've traveled to other areas near Tamasopo. Rio Verde, Xilitla where Edward James sculpture gardens are located called Las Pozas and all the missions built by Fr. Serra and his group before he hiked to California.
It truly is an exquisite part of Mexico with few tourists. (A plus for me).
Go, if you get the chance. You too will be struck with awe at the beauty. Send photos!
