Cola de Caballo in Jalisco falls over vertical cliffs in smaller side ravine of the giant Barranca the Huentitán (Oblatos) canyon. This canyon is up to 520 m deep and contains a nature reserve with interesting deciduous tropical forest where the trees for some 7 months per year are without leaves.
Waterfall has a very impressive upper cascade – a vertical plunge that is approximately 150 m tall. Below this plunge follow at least two smaller cascades. In the rainy season, some 200 m to the north appears one more waterfall with similar height.
After some 1.5 km the stream of the waterfall flows into Rio Grande de Santiago.
Unfortunately the water in Cola de Caballo is dirty. Next to the falls is built visitor platform, here are also set gardens with some typical and endemic plants of Huentitán canyon.
