Thanks Jesus!! It was nice to share a day with you on the river!
Great Excursion!

Cristian took four of us (all of us around 50 years old) with a group of seven others (all in their late teens) and it should have been a great time. Unfortunately, the heat and humidity was too much for my wife and she got sick pretty early on in the hike. We ended up hanging out at a spot on the river and waiting for Cristian to come down with the younger crowd to pick us up on their way back. If you are in shape and hydrated this hike will be relatively easy for you. Cristian is a great tour guide and safety is a priority for him. He provides interesting facts about the area and has a great sense of humor. Nicolette assisted with driving the group because of the number of hikers and she was great! Very informative and she would also make a great guide. Thanks to you both and we hope to try it again.

Hey Piper! Sorry for the heat and humidity, it is always like that here in Huatulco specially in the summer. You will try it again and do the whole thing! I will be here and the river too! Take care! see you around!!
Ride the river adventure!
Kenlee_D, July 2021
Cristian took such perfect care of us. I felt safe but still very adventuresome and it was a once in a lifetime solo ride down the river! Fantastic fun!

Thanks a lot for your commentary!!
A very good adventure experience (とても良いアドベンチャー経験機会)
Takefumi_S, Apr 2021
Walking through rocky canyons and floating/walking through the river was a very good experience for my kids who has grown up in cities and lack interaction with the nature. 岩だらけの急峻な渓谷を登り、歩いたり川面に浮いたりしながら川下りした経験は、都市育ちの我が家の子供にとって自然と触れ合いアドベンチャー気分を味わうとても良い機会でした。

Thanks you guys for the review! See you next time!!!
Our Favorite Day in Huatulco
Chris_C, Feb 2021
Canyoning with Christian was one of the most fun things we have ever done. A customizable tour, you are able to go at your own pace and at your own comfort level. Christian is extremely kind, patient and knowledgeable about the area, as well as the sport of canyoning. We floated down the river, navigated rapids, cliff jumped, rappelled and bouldered rocks. This is definitely a tour that I would recommend and absolutely a tour that we will do again! Thank you Christian, for such a fun day!
Response from Host, Feb 2021
Thanks you guys for coming !!! Keep smiling!!
Stunning canyoning tour!
maia_l, Dec 2020
Cristian was an amazing tour guide- friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to let us pace the tour. The canyoning was stunning and it was easy enough to relax while doing it but still had a pretty high cliff jump/rappel to make it thrilling. Cristian leads a few other tours as well- definitely worth contacting him and doing whatever tour he suggests! Ask him to make a passion fruit juice stop on the way back!
Response from Host, Jan 2021
Thanks a lot for the comment!! Hope to see you again one day!
