The trailhead to the Puente de Dios is located near the river just passing the small shops and restrooms (21.19672, -99.60590). The path goes along the riverbank, crossing the river several times using small wooden bridges. About a mile in, you will come across Angostura Canyon; a small section of the trail made of cement goes by the canyon wall. Stop for a moment and contemplate the landscape, touch the crystal clear fresh water and listen its sound. Almost arriving to the Puente de Dios, you will find small springs of fresh water. It is pure clear water. The Puente de Dios is a grotto and a waterfall in the same beautiful place. There are small areas where you can swim.

This is a nice and easy trail that goes inside of a wonderful place full of vegetation and trees, and with a beautiful river of clear and fresh water. Wonderful views!
