Kayaking in Mexico always has surprises in store. Exploring rivers, seas, and lakes this way is both noble and fun. Plus, it leaves no footprints and it is a great way to spend time with the family.
A canoe for one or two is all you need to start the adventure. With a helmet and life-jacket and a firm grip on your paddle, you are ready to head out onto the water.
Little by little, with surprising views of the landscape that only the perspective of a kayak can offer, you will make progress, opening a path among the waves that both defy and help you, slipping along in the direction of the wind.
The natural splendor all around, the warmth of the sun, the proximity to the water, the silence reigning on the shore, and experiencing the animals in the sea, lakes, cenotes, or reservoirs – these are not the only benefits of a day spent kayaking.
In addition, it is an exercise that respects nature. And while it sharpens the mind it also trains the body, given the strength required to use the paddle and propel the kayak along.
At the end of the day you will feel happy and satisfied, having enjoyed the peacefulness only a journey like this can provide. You’ll remember the rocking of the waves, the sound of the seagulls in flight, the palm trees caressed by the wind, and the fish leaping around you.
If a short excursion is not enough, and you yearn for more, it is possible to take trips lasting two or three days that explore remote locations. Combined with delicious regional cuisine and observation of the stars, flora, and fauna, it makes for an extraordinary experience.
In Mexico kayaking is available on practically all beaches, rivers, reservoirs, and lakes. Even so, a few of the favorites are the beaches and cenotes of Quintana Roo, the beaches of Oaxaca, the area around Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, the peninsula of Baja California, Guerrero, and Michoacán.
