icon-itinerary Itinerary

Meet your Canyoning guide & instructor at 9am. After fitting on the suits, we take a 30 minute jeep drive to the location from which you will be greeted by one of the most spectacular views of Mérida. Hike mainly downhill for another 30 minutes and get abseiling instruction. Once you are ready to go, we will find several small “chutes” to slide down, a heart pounding 7- 8 meters natural hydro slide (where you may become airborne) more powerful waterfalls to abseil (rappel) down including a 35 meters monster at the end. The trip will return around 4 pm. The actual time in the canyon is around 4 hours.
We will drop you at your posada in Merida.
