Ciudad Valles

Ciudad Valles ©
Ciudad Valles is the second-largest city in the Mexican state of San Luis Potosí. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Tamtoc Archaeological Site and Media Luna. Visiting River Rafting & Tubing and Tamul Waterfalls will get you outdoors. Change things up with a short trip to Cueva de Agua in Aquismon (about 1h 5 min away). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Huasteca Potosina.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Ciudad Valles online road trip planner.

Cancun to Ciudad Valles is an approximately 6-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also drive; or take a bus. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Cancun to Ciudad Valles due to the time zone difference. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Mon) early enough to drive to Xilitla.
