There are many fantastic places to explore in Mexico. It is particularly the state of Chiapas one of its most spectacular destinations. And the La Venta River canyon is without any doubt one those places you cannot miss. So prepare your hiking boots and follow one of our guides across this majestic canyon!

On this hiking adventure we will head early morning towards Aguacero, a 75 meters waterfall that is formed by the waters of the La Venta river. This is unique cascade, as its precipitation creates the effect of a rainstorm. And it is located at one of the most beautiful spots in Chiapas, the Forest Biosphere Reserve El Ocote. This reserve is not only magnificent due to its beauty, but its cultural and economical importance. As a community of tzeltales manages the reserve, offering different kinds of services, including local food and activities. So you’ll be helping this community preserve the area and contributing to their economy. And once you reach the area, you’ll understand why it is so important, as you too, will be mesmerized by its beauty.

Please note that in order to reach the La Venta River Canyon, participants must have a good fitness level. Due to its location, you will have to descend between 750 and 900 steps in order to truly appreciate the waterfall. But, upon arrival, you’ll get the opportunity to trek under the waterfall, following the river.

Don’t miss this opportunity. Send us a request and let one of our experienced and certified guides take you on this majestic place.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
