Las Pozas dates back to 1947 when Edward James was living in Mexico, in semi-exile. Deep within the rainforests of Mexico, seven hours outside of Mexico City, lies a magical hidden gem that very few have had the pleasure of stumbling across. It’s called Las Pozas and it is a sculpture garden, tucked away from prying eyes and at one with nature. It was created by a man named Edward James, an eccentric man who spent millions to create this magical wonderland that’s comprised of 20 acres of natural waterfalls and mountain springs.
The Hinatuan River is located on an island in the Philippines. It is often referred to as the “Enchanted River” because according to the stories surrounding it, no one, not even professional scuba divers have been successfully able to reach the bottom. Fisherman from the island claim that they are unable to catch a fish by hand, spear, or net.
The Hotel del Salto is located near Tequendama Falls on the Bogotá River in Colombia. It was opened in 1924 and shut its doors in the 1990′s. The hotel’s Gothic design is perfectly enhanced by a river and waterfall. Some say the hotel is haunted and no one wanted to stay there. Others state that the adjoining river was extremely polluted and they had to close. For whatever reason, the hotel stands as a beautifully macabre landmark for lovers of classic architecture, urban exploration, and maybe a few ghosts.
