Rafting the Rio Micos.

The waterfalls of the Micos river don’t get run in a raft.  We decided it would be a good test run.  We picked some durable people and sent them on their way.  Patrick, Claudia and Sarah gave it a go.   This video is the result.

Minas Viejas…The Heart of the Huasteca!

Published by under Mexico Whitewater

Minas Viejas is a run that never gets old.  It is a tributary that lies between Micos and El Salto sections of the Rio Valles.


There are multiple access points, which make it that much better.   The upper run is class 3+ with one drop being class 4.  This drop is about 16 feet with landing between rocks.


Below is a picture of the seal launch to avoid the submerged rocks.


This is the drop, below, the key is to boof into the waterfall coming in on the right side of the photo.



The 150 footer is a portage, but the drops below are classic and clean.



Velocidad is the biggest slide on the run.  It hits hard and lives up to its name.  “Speed”.

The bank shot has changed since last season.  It’s now a lot easier to get right and stomp a big boof.  

Minas Viejas is 100 percent spring fed, so the levels don’t fluctuate much.  It is running good now after some rain the past few days.  Come and get it while it’s good.
