Huatulco National Park

Huatulco

Feel the adrenaline while descending in an inflatable boat through the rapids of the Copalita River. The riverbed is divided into four rafting routes with different categories, the most exciting being the one that begins in the coffee community of San Jose Alemania. The route includes 18 kilometers (11 miles) of category III rapids, that is, turbulent waters with obstacles (rocks and branches) and waves no greater than 1 meter (3 feet) high.

There are sections where the river becomes calmer, allowing you to admire the lush trees, the flight of frigates and ducks, and the inhabitants of the mountains cheering when they see the boat go by. The tour ends where the Copalita river embraces La Bocana, a beach of the rebels where Zapotec women make masks with the mud thrown by the river.

Some companies that offer this activity include a snack on the shore of Copalita. Others are more extreme, inviting you to descend the rapids at night.

To continue with the adventurous activities in Huatulco, Oaxaca, go deep into the jungle aboard ATVs (all-terrain vehicles), to explore the Bahia de San Agustín (San Agustín Bay), famous for bordering the beaches of Puerto Escondido.

The path is marked by pineapple, papaya and stevia plantations. Then, you must “conquer” the dunes of Coyote Beach. The adventure ends at the highest part of the bay, offering you a view of cliffs covered with cactus, which give it an oasis-like appearance. In Bahía de San Agustin, the residents prevented the construction of hotels, so you will only find bunks to eat at and rent snorkeling equipment.
