Just the right level of scary, rewarding, and fun. Raul was a great guide that even provided enough reassurance for my wife to jump off a cliff into a rock pool.

Rio verde is a wonderful area; the hike up is already a pleasure, the canyoning down is spectacular; beautiful sights, cool jumps, rapids and slide throughs.

Very nice canyoning tour. You need to be some kind of fit to do it, and have strong ankles.
