The Huasteca is a kayakers paradise! The Micos section drops 400 feet in a mile with 7 waterfalls. In November, water levels are high giving this a class 4 rating. We also run Minas Viejas, Ojo Frio, El Salto, and the 3rd and 4th canyons of the Santa Maria!
This week is about having fun on class 3+ and 4 with the chance to run some class 5 if interested!
These rivers are,our local runs and we know them intimately. We offer a NO STRESS paddling environment! Its all about the FUN!
The itinerary can be changed to repeat some rivers depending on the skills and confidence of the group!
Week of Rivers Descriptions
Kayak Huasteca offers tours in 3 different states with VERY different climates. Our rivers boast some of the most friendly and runnable waterfalls in the world! We have 70 degree water temps and turquoise colored pools. To the south we find more waterfalls and high altitude coffee! All of our activites are based around local operators and an authentic Mexican Eperience!
Much like Week of Rivers 4 except with lower water levels. As the winter season progresses water levels drop slowly. The Micos section becomes more friendly with less haydraulics and less neccesity for a good BOOF stroke! It is a perfect playground for learning new waterfall kayaking techniques!
This week is for building confidence on class 3 and progressing to class 4 and 4+. There will not be any class 5 on this trip!
We will be paddling Rio Micos, El Salto, Rio Tampaon, San Nicolas and Ojo Frio. Depending on water levels Rio Ayutla and Upper Santa Maria in the state of Queretaro!
