Cascada

Can someone help me out? A couple of years ago I went to an amazing natural water slide near zihua. It was an ecological reserve and was the most fun. Waterfalls cascading into pools. Rickety bridges. I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know the name of this place? Going to Troncones tomorrow and thought we could make a side trip there.
Any help appreciated

The place is called Mesas de Bravo. You'll want to hire a licensed tour guide to take you there. Please see the links for my recommended services on my Guide to Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa Activities page. Currently there is very little water in the streams and it would not be a good time to visit until after the rainy season begins.

Waterfall pools and rock water slides

Hey everyone. These aren't hot springs. They call it an ecological reserve and it seems like it isn't very well known- at least not by tourists - which keeps it a nice little secret spot. The first time I went a local guide took me and then about 2 years ago we went by taxi but I had forgotten the name of it. There are waterfalls cascading into pools but best of all are these naturally formed rock slides that you shoot down and land into pools at the bottom. There are about 3 or 4 pools that step down. The place seems to be looked after by a family and their kids sort of take you through. No one speaks any English so I don't really know what the deal is or how it's operated. Oh - and also there are these sweet little rustic cabins that I guess people could rent. I thought it was pretty magical and surprised that no one seemed to know about it. But Zihua Rob is right. It would be quite hard to find without a guide and the water levels would be low at times. I googled it a couple of years ago and found some home videos on line but couldn't find them this time.

two different conversations in the same thread. there are 2 hotsprings you can get directions from the troncones point hostel you can see pics on trip advisor . And yes the waterfalls are different.
