No Name Waterfall in Catemaco

This is one of the many magnificent waterfalls in Los Tuxtlas that are almost invisible to most tourists and residents. Located on the road to Miguel Hidalgo, 25 kilometers from Catemaco, the waterfall is only prominent during the rainy season, and then only after a few days of heavy rain. At that time the roaring white waters set off clouds of fog which draw the eyes of the passerby to its existence. Curiously the inhabitants have no name for the falls and say that it is not accessible except to bushhogs. When the movie Medicine Man was shot in Catemaco, Sean Connery supposedly used a helicopter to film there. Time to rent the movie again.
