Puente de Dios is a recreational center located near the town of Tomasopo in S.L.P, Mexico, it has waterfalls and natural pools, it is an ideal place to swim and enjoy with the family. You can arrive to the entrance of this beautiful place in a vehicle, but if you want more fun you can walk to get to the same place along the river and then continue walking until where the river is born in the middle of the forest. The trail to arrive to Puente de Dios starts at the entrance of Paso Ancho.
