  • Marvel at the beautiful scenery along the route leading to Jalcomulco.

One of the finest rivers in Mexico, the Pescados River in Vera Cruz is absolutely gorgeous. And, on this 2-day rafting trip, you will get to cruise down the river and soak in all of its amazing scenery. You will also get to have a lot of fun on its collection of exciting rapids, too!

Our descent along the Pescados River stretches for approximately 11 kilometers. We will begin in Puente Pescados and go all the way to Jalcomulco. The river is filled with rapids that range from grade II to grade IV. That level of rapids is not difficult, but enough to ensure you will have a lot of fun. Furthermore, due to the relative ease of the rapids available along the river, this trip is open to kids as young as twelve years old. Thus making this a great trip for the family. However, it is important that all participants know how to swim.

Rafting along a river as fine as the Pecados River in Vera Cruz is a wonderful opportunity to see nature, while also having a great time. To join us on this trip, please send a request. We look forward to guiding you on this great journey.

What people are saying about México


The guides on Malinche and Orizaba were very good. But there was a big problem on Iztaccihuatl. I said to each of the guides that I had there that I wasn't bothered about seeing the sunrise from the top, and would it be possible to start a bit later than the usual 1am? They both agreed that it was, one saying that the reason for leaving so early was that normally they needed to take clients back to Mexico City after the climb, and in my case that wasn't necessary as I would stay at the visitor's centre. So in the end we left the visitor's centre at 4:30am. When we got to a foresummit of Iztaccihuatl at 11am, my guide said that we had left very late, and would have to turn back. So we never reached the top, to my great annoyance. In retrospect the best option would have been to have spent one night at the refuge at 4700m before going to the top, but this was never really offered as a possibility.



I love Carlos and the team! We ended up changing our itinerary to 3 mountains in 8 days and had a great experience. I will recommend Carlos and his wonderful hospitality and working with logistics anytime!



Bernardo was so nice and made sure that we were all safe and sound at all time. The taco place we went afterwards were so good. I had a wonderful trip that day and will definitely recommend it to everyone! Thank you!



The guides were awesome and supportive. I will absoutely be using explore share in the future



Great experience, glad I had the opportunity to do this hikes. I was only able to summit one of 3 peaks. One of them Malinche was because the cops didn't let us go up. make sure to start really early so that won't be a problem. The cops stop everyone in bad weather regardless if you have a guide or not. Iztaccihuatl I was able to summit bc the guide Carlos make sure we save our energy for the key areas. Pico de Orizaba it was not possible, because 40 mph winds and snow or hail, the guide make sure we returned safely back to the refuge. If we were able to extend the trip by one day we could have summit, no one summit that day but those that tried the following day had much better success rate. Either way always respect the mountain
