Mexico has been privileged by nature with extraordinary places for the practice of adventure tourism by air, water and land, as there are plenty of natural walls to climb or descend in the mountains, routes to do on foot, by bicycle, on horseback or by flying and rivers to descend, coasts to submerge and waterfalls to dominate. This time we will talk about some Mexican adventure destinations that meet natural beauty, challenges to overcome and that are also a good option for flights to Mexico.
Basement of Las Golondrinas, San Luis Potosí
It is a great chasm of more than 500 meters deep and has become one of the Mexican temples of rappel lovers, although some parachutists also frequent it. It is located in the Huasteco municipality of Aquismon, southeast of San Luis Potosí.
Barrancas del Cobre, Chihuahua
These ravines of the Sierra Tarahumara are equally as breathtaking as the Grand Canyon of Colorado, and offer the possibility of practicing various adventure activities such as hiking, horseback riding, climbing, rappelling, mountain biking, canyoning and river descent. The journey on the El Chepe train is in itself a journey of adventure, crossing over bridges with abysses that freeze the blood. On the other hand, the Barrancas del Cobre Adventure Park offers all the facilities to practice your favorite entertainment and has zip lines, cable car and many other amusements.
Rafting is an exciting sport because of the adrenaline that generates a trip at full speed through the areas of rapids of the rivers and the pleasant and refreshing contact with the water. One of the Mexican sanctuaries of the descent of rivers is the La Antigua River, passing through the Veracruz municipality of Jalcomulco; the river descends with variations in its level of intensity, creating sectors of different degrees of difficulty for rafting.
Peña de Bernal, Querétaro
This 288 meters high rock located in the Magical Town of Bernal is the largest monolith of Mexico and is visited by the best national and international climbers. It is the third world monolith in size, just behind the Sugar Loaf and the Rock of Gibraltar. It has four routes to climb, although in all cases it is recommended to ascend with an expert, especially when the rock climbs for the first time.
Nevado de Toluca, State of Mexico
