Rappelling beside Minas Viejas and Micos Waterfall

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    We leave Ciudad Valles around 8:50am (not on high season) to get to Micos waterfalls.

    There you will get specialized equipment (helmet and personal flotation device), and after you will get a complete safety induction, then we walk a few minutes to get to El Toro waterfall and then we start jumping each waterfall and swimming to the next one.

    The biggest one is 24 feet. It is optional to jump it or not. It will be you who decide if you want to jump or not.

    After a short walk we will get to the vehicle and have a snack before getting on the van again.

    At the end of this activity, we will drive extra 45 minutes to get to Minas Viejas waterfall there you will get a safety induction about rappelling and then you will go down beside this amazing waterfall.

    Once we finish rappelling, we will have a complete meal and time to enjoy the place. We will go back to Ciudad Valles after all this active day.
