MIL CASCADAS, also known as Las Granadas, in the state of Guerrero, México is a series of waterfalls and pools on the Granados river. Mil Cascadas means “1000 waterfalls” and it’s not an exaggeration. The falls and pools drop into the river, and the water is chilly year-round.

The best way to visit it is with a tour or guide company. They will guide you to rappel 100 feet down the waterfalls before jumping into several other pools for a swim and will show you around the many water caves. It’s not a very populated place yet, and it can still be seen in its pristine natural state.

How to get there

Mil Cascadas is about 40 minutes away from the town of Taxco, Guerrero, and about 1 hour and 40 minutes away from the city of Cuernavaca. It’s recommended that you book a tour or guide to take you there. Most of the companies include hotel pickup and drop-off in their tour.
