In Huatulco the rafting season is approximately from June/July to February/March, depending on the amount of rain we get. There are various rivers you can practice this exciting sport at all levels, from nice and easy, for the whole family, to real white water rafting for the more fit and experienced people (levels I to V). You´ll get to enjoy the beautifull mountain scenery and the wide variety of flora and fauna around the rivers.
There´s some exciting river kayaking you can do on the various rivers around Huatulco. Obviously the amount of white water depends on the amount of rain we get (see Rafting above). You can also do the same descends that are done with the rafting, but then with a kayak instead of in the raft.
