A trip to Mexico would not be complete without a visit to Hierve El Agua, Oaxaca’s Petrified Mineral Waterfalls, also known as the “Frozen Waterfalls.” Its white-ish rock formations make the waterfall appear frozen. “It was created by water containing an overabundance of minerals such as calcium. As the water flowed over the cliffs, minerals were deposited; over time, the deposits grew into what is seen today,” rustytraveljunk.com explains.
