white water rafting tour (class III to IV rapids)

The Copalita river

The river Copalita is fed by the springs and streams in the Sierra Madre. Then, the course of the river heads south crossing the evergreen jungle, coffee plantations, and finally, the low jungle to merge itself with the Pacific Ocean at La Bocana beach.This river is crucial for the survival of many plants and animals as well as many communities which have settled next to the river. There are papaya, mango, lemon, banana and corn plantations alongside of the river. It is the living water resource of the region,and is the southern limit of the tourist complex of Bahías of Huatulco.

 

Rafting Hamacas - Adventure + Scenery

For the one in search of adrenaline thrills this is the trip of section called Hamacas, the 28 km, mostly Class II-III with a couple of Class IV rapids where you can combine the thrills of the rapids with the contemplative scenery.

Rafting Alemania - Full Excitement

For those looking for the non stop thrills, we offer you the section called Alemania a Class III-IV whitewater run located farther upstream which offers a lot more thrills. At the rainy season the high water makes it a wild ride through lots of tight canyons that require the active participation of the people on board. The Alemania section is so named because it starts at the Alemania coffee plantation, a formerly German-owned plantation that dates back more than half a century ago. A 22 Klm stretch with 40+ rapids ensures a great day out on the best that Mexico has to offer in terms of Spills and Chills.
