What people are saying about Rock Climbing | Mexico



This was an awesome, well organized and safe adventure. We would recommend it for anyone who is visiting the area and interested in climbing.


Simeon was a pleasure to correspond with - very responsive and helpful. The guided climbing trip was great. Very fun and informative. I now feel comfortable leading and cleaning sport routes. I would definitely recommend SouthernXposure Guides to anyone interested, and I will reach out again for more climbing in Mexico.


I have climbed with Simeon twice. Once by myself at Bernal and once at Aculco with my family. Both were amazing experiences. I am new to climbing and Simeon has always been patient and eager to teach with a major focus on learning how to climb safely. I highly recommend his guide service!!


Definitely the best outdoor company for rock climbing in Mexico! Guided by one of the best guides, with a lot of experience to give! I was climbing with Simeon some days ago in Jilotepec, and in Aculco. He is a great guy, excellent guide, a great person, and a fancy cooker! If you have the opportunity to spend time with SouthernXposure do it!


On my first trip to Mexico for rock climbing Simeon was gracious in showing us several local climbing destinations within an hour or so from queretaro. Without his help we would have been lost. Simeon is passionate about the sport of rock climbing as well as introducing Mexican culture to individuals visiting from the states His knowledge of both is invaluable
