San Luis Potosi is the capital of the state bearing the same name, and at 6,000 feet above sea level, it is one of Mexico’s highest cities. Lying at the heart of the interior plateau which stretches across the windswept, sun-baked plains of north central Mexico, it is easily reached from Queretaro and other centrally located colonial cities.
Its importance to the country’s history spans four centuries of influence, and today, the city remains one of Mexico’s most picturesque, recognized as a highlight of Mexican architecture, all the while boasting a ton of exciting adventure tours.
Much like the Mayan ruins spread throughout the country, San Luis retains both magic and mystery. The National Museum of Regional Masks, the Plaza de Armas main square, which hosts the city’s amazing Cathedral, and the Founder’s Plaza are cultural highlights.
Some of the most beautiful waterfalls in Mexico, can be found in Tamasopo and Aquismon, in the surrounding regions of San Luis. Rappelling beside the Minas Viejas and Micos Waterfall, and white water rafting in the Tampaon river, have taken off exponentially and exert a strong pull for adventurers to the area.
Encompassing a vast territory of diverse forest, high desert and hundreds of majestic mountains, at its heart, this city is loyal and proud of its place in Mexican history and today strives to retain that grandeur as a major player in tourism where adventure and culture awaits around every corner.
