World-class white water rafting in San Luis Potosi

Picture a perfect class III white water rafting experience through a limestone canyon of turquoise waters, a visit to a living garden of eden, complete with art sculptures, hidden pools, butterflies and waterfalls, a hike to the largest known cave shaft in the world, which you can rappel into, and a series of waterfalls for cliff jumping.

Top this all off with a plate of homemade tacos and a local beer for $2, and you’ve got yourself a piece of adventure paradise on a budget.

Still very much under the radar to anyone outside of Mexico, San Luis Potosí could be compared to Costa Rica in terms of adventure and Cambodia in terms of affordability.

Since November 2016, the American dollar has been especially strong in Mexico, offering an even better excuse to travel south of the border.

 

The city of San Luis Potosi is only 110 miles north of San Miguel de Allende, you can be there in 90 minutes, and all tours depart from there:
