Nestled within lush green foliage is this pretty waterfall, where milky white water spills down a cliff face and flows over huge boulders.

Follow the sounds of rushing water echoing around a region of thick vegetation to reach the Velo de Novia Waterfall (Cascada Velo de Novia). Refresh your mind while appreciating the scenic beauty of this sight. Velo de Novia Waterfall is 115 feet (35 meters) tall and takes its name from its resemblance to a wedding veil (velo de novia). The waterfall sits amid a nature reserve and its waters feed the nearby Lake Avándaro.

The path to the cascade is short and traverses an expanse of exotic trees and shrubs. Stand at the split-level viewing areas for the chance to admire the falls from various angles. Note how the water tumbles down the rocks in the shape of a bridal veil. Clamber over the rocks, stand close to the cliff face and feel the spray of the water. Be aware that the rocks can be slippery and hazardous.

Climb to the lookout at one of the reserve’s highest points, which offers views across Lake Avándaro. Bring food and enjoy a picnic amid this lush natural environment. Benches and tables are placed along the banks of the stream that runs down from the falls. Alternatively, look for a quiet spot, collect your thoughts and bask in the tranquility.

Velo de Novia Waterfall is about 6 miles (10 kilometers) southwest of Valle de Bravo’s town center. The most convenient way to get here is by taxi. Free parking is available, although limited. While you are in the area, explore other attractions in Valle de Bravo, including the Independence Plaza, St. Francis of Assisi Church and Joaquin Arcadio Pagaza Museum.

Visit Velo de Novia Waterfalls and its nature reserve daily. Admission is free. The falls are most impressive after rainfall. Arrive in the morning during the peak season to avoid large crowds. If you don’t feel like walking the trail, pay to ride on horseback.
