Arroyo San Nicolas is an intermittent stream located in the state of Aguascalientes, Mexico. It originates from the Sierra Fría mountain range and flows through the municipality of Pabellón de Arteaga. The stream is approximately 22 kilometers long and has a drainage basin of 64 square kilometers.

During the rainy season, which typically occurs from June to September, the stream flows with water and can be quite strong. However, during the dry season, the stream can completely dry up, leaving behind only a dry bed.

The vegetation surrounding Arroyo San Nicolas consists primarily of mesquite trees, which are well adapted to the arid climate. The stream also supports a variety of wildlife, including birds, reptiles, and small mammals.

The intermittent nature of Arroyo San Nicolas has led to challenges for local communities who rely on the stream for irrigation and livestock watering. In recent years, efforts have been made to promote sustainable water management practices, including the construction of small dams and reservoirs to capture and store water during the rainy season for use during the dry season.
