North of the capital, the old mining village of Real de Catorce sits on a mountainside in the arid Sierra de Catorce range.

East of the capital is the Huasteca region, home to rainforest and waterfalls like the Cascada de Tamul and Puente de Dios.

Unique natural features include the massive, deep Cave of Swallows, popular for caving and bird-watching, and the Manantial de la Media Luna crater lake, with warm springs for swimming and scuba diving.
