La Mesa de Bravo on a guided tour with William Mertz

Going to the waterfalls at La Mesa de Bravo with Wil Mertz as our guide was a wonderful experience.  We drove up from Zihua into the mountains for about an hour and a half, then we travelled up a dirt road to get to La Mesa de Bravo.  Upon arriving we hiked up to the big waterfalls, then travelled down to lower ones.  We saw beautiful butterflies, an awesome little frog, and even a baby turtle.  Lunch was served in a wonderful covered area where we could sit by on of the falls and watch the water run by.  With it being the rainy season there was a lot of water in the river, and it rained near the end of our time there.  Lunch was served by the owner of La Mesa de Bravo and was fantastic.  Robyn and I both agree they were by far the best tortillas we have had so far.  The corn was grown right there, and the chicken we had was also fresh and tasty, raised there on the farm, fed corn, and free of any growth hormones.  I can't wait to see the new restaraunt when it is complete.  Visiting the falls would be a trip worth while for anyone who wants to see more of Mexico.  It was one of the highlights of our trip.  On the way home we even had to stop for a tarantula to cross the road :-)
