Why Mexico?

Veracruz is a state in Mexico which is home to many rivers that run through steep gorges and thick Jungle. Probably the most popular of these rivers with kayakers is the almost unbelievable Alseseca.

Each section winds its way through beautiful jungle gorges which are stacked with amazing rapids and waterfalls…it really is a kayaker’s dream! Some of our pictures capture the feeling of dropping through such special gorges, which only allow you to see their beauty if you’re prepared to kit up and commit to entering them in your kayak!

Trip run in partnership with:
