I arrived in Xilitla. The town is nestled between the sides of two hills and curves around a crevice. Xilitla is know for two things - natural springs for swimming and the Edward James Garden. The two just happen to be next to each other.
When I arrived at the springs I didn't waste time, I stripped down to my shorts and jumped in. There were actually about three pools at different levels all stacked along the hillside. At the the top was a cascada (waterfall) that was feeding the pools. I suppose that the waterfall was being fed by a spring at the top.
I relaxed for about an hour. Some more people showed up, so I decided that it would be a good time to check out the garden.
Edward James was a patron of the arts and an artist himself. He was friends and greatly influenced by Salvador Dali. He and a friend Plutarco Gastelum build a huge garden with a collection of surreal structures. He didn't finish the garden nor all the structures so the site is part garden and part relic.
After spending time in the springs and garden I found a nice hotel in Xilitla and decided to settle for a day or two.
