El Aguacate waterfall is a magical place that is located outside of the city of Puebla. It is a beautiful waterfall of 35 ft. through rock walls and into swimming holes.

In order to get from the city of Puebla, you have to cross the dam of Valsequillo. Once you have crossed, you must drive to the third town called "El Aguacate". When you're in town you must follow the road and keep you on the left for 4.5 miles, since then you must go out on a dirt road just where a very old truck stop with a brick wall not finished. Then drive for 2.5 miles on the dirt road to a small village called San Agustin Huehuetla. In San Agustin, you should leave the car and start walking; you must ask the local people where to park. After leaving the car, the road is upstream, it is important that you always keep to the left of the river, it is safer.

After an hour walking, you can enjoy the waterfall known as "El Aguacate" although in fact, its name is the waterfall of San Agustin.
