Rafting in Tampaon River from Ciudad Valles

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    We will start the trip picking you up from your centrally located hotel in CIUDAD VALLES, San Luis Potosi. Then we will drive for around 1 hour to get to Tampaon River.

    Your guide will be waiting for you at Tampaon River as they go in advance to set up of all the equipment for you. You will receive a 30-minute briefing and then start the tour. After arriving to the side of the river, you will get a personal flotation device class V imported from the US as well as a helmet and a paddle.

    Your guides will do the safety induction including all the basic instructions you might need to use during the downriver. After the safety induction, you all go to the boats and there you practice all the commands to be used while you paddle for 45 minutes on flat water enjoying the amazing landscape that Tampaon River has to offer us.

    You then enjoy a more adventurous portion of the river as you go down stronger rapids and feel the adrenaline. This portion will take about 3 to 3.5 hours. Once over, you will enjoy a delicious lunch at the edge of the river before heading back to Ciudad Valles arriving at approximately 5pm/5:30pm.

    Hello, absolutely, you just have to book your reservation and they'll fit you in a group not bigger than 8 persons. We had 3 persons doing the tour by themselves but we all interacted a lot, do not hesitate in going! Enjoy!
