Huatulco rafting offers more than most destinations: lush vegetation, a perfect climate, and blue skies. The Copalita river flows through the area with white-water rapids for expert rafters and gentler stretches for the entire family.
Rafting in Huatulco is an exciting activity. To begin this adventure, leave early in the morning and head into the Sierra Madre del Sur. After climbing to more than 2,500 feet, descend 15 miles, and launch your raft at the mouth of the river.
You can enjoy this activity with the family if you obey the safety recommendations; expert guides are always on hand, and it is important to follow their instructions.
The Copalita river has three sections with varying levels of difficulty: the first two take an entire day, and the third just half a day.
For the big thrills, try the Alemania section. These amazing class IV and V rapids are very technical. Class III and IV rapids can be found at the La Hamaca section. The third section has class I and II rapids best suited for the family. The Yuviaga and Zimatán rivers are also recommended.
Rafting in Huatulco is possible only from June through to January.
