Hierve el Agua is one of Mexico's most beautiful natural wonders that you probably haven't heard of. Located in the Central Valleys of Oaxaca, these natural mineral springs are a sight you need to see.

The mysterious waterfalls appear to be frozen into the side of cliffs. In reality, these "waterfalls" are mineral formations that have accumulated over thousands of years. Atop the cliffs are turquoise bathing pools that offer incredible views of the surrounding landscape.
