Piedra Colorada

Piedra Colorada

Twenty minutes hike north of Montezuma is a small beach, stream, and wasterfall called “Piedra Colorada” which is a fairly easy hike and a popular destination for both tourists and locals.

Balanced rock garden at Piedra ColoradoFurther past is Playa Grande, but many stop here because it’s so scenic, lots of people hang out here, and there’s more shade.

A local artist named Jake used to come out to Piedra Colorada every morning to rebuild a balanced rock sculpture garden here, and the tradition has stuck, so you although Jake hasn’t lived in the area for quite some time, you will probably still find that others are adding their own stone towers to the garden.

Piedra colorada is a great place for children. It has a small sandy beach, but the kids usually play in a freshwater pool with a small waterfall.
