Cañon de La Vieja Adventure
Only a short, 40-minute drive from most hotels, this rafting adventure starts with an 8 zip-line tour that crisscrosses the Rio Colorado Canyon. And for about an hour, this beautiful canyon will set the stage for you to navigate cables that range from 150 meters (492 ft.) to 360 meters (1181 ft.) and peak at 75 meters in height (246 ft.). The key objectives here are for you to relax and enjoy the views as you build up your confidence after each cable. After you have completed the zip-line course it is time for you to try your skills at rappelling and climbing one of the canyon walls – because why not, right?
After we have finished our canyon zip-line, ii’s time to jump in the bus for a short, 5-minute drive up the road to the river put-in point. You will receive the safety briefing by your guides and will put on your life vest and helmets. Now it is time to get on the “dokis,” the small rafts on which you will navigate the narrow river rapids of the Rio Colorado. We will only be tackling class II and III rapids, but they are enough fun for you to hold on tight as you cruise down the river. In between rapids remember to enjoy the scenery and rest your arms for the next fun-packed rapid. Time on the river is approximately 50 minutes. The tour ends with a typical, buffet style lunch at the adventure center.
