Comments: White water rafting in Jalcomulco


Today we went to the town of Jalcomulco, Veracruz. Esme and I had been white water rafting about one year ago and we were both convinced that my mother would love it. We had to walk to the bus that took us to Coatepec because the main street in Xalapa was blocked by trucks parked in front of the government palace.

Thanks, I will pass it on to Esme. She really cooks wonderful and now and then the food she serves looks like it came straight from an expensive restaurant. And yes, it was yummy :-)

I am planning to visit the area with my three children ages 9, 14, and 15 all of whom have rafted before (in Peru). I found your posting very helpful.

Can you suggest an inexpensive (reasonable) outfitter for rafting and other outdoor activities (horseback riding, rapelling, etc. day or overnight)? Who did you use and how much did it cost?

Thank you for your help.

According to Esme, my partner, ProAdventure asked 400 pesos a person, but when we went with my mother we got a discount and paid 1000 pesos for the tree of us.

In Jalcomulco there are several companies that arrange rafting and rapelling. I am sure that horseback riding is possible as well. Be sure to take sun block with you. I recall my mom asking if we could move into the shadow, when we already where in a shaded place. On the river it's less hot though, but make sure that the sun block you use is water resistant. No time to put it on while rafting.
