Cristian is an expert guide with many years of experience. Group was comprised of me (53 y/o) and two 19 y/o young men and I was never pushed to do anything too daring and I don't believe I held them back either. Cristian balanced abilities, pace and FUN perfectly! The most thrilling was with Cristian's guidance I felt safe to jump off big ledge into river and wheeeee it was so wonderful, so fun. Extra credit to Cristian in the planning phase - I had to juggle calendar and I was a bit frantic but Cristian was so chill and able to incorporate me into group with short notice. Thank youuuuuuu!

Had a great time doing the canyoning tour!! We were a group of 3 people and had a private tour. We all had so much fun sliding in the river, jumping in the natural pools and floating down the river. Easy to change tour to fit what people prefer to do. First time ever and it was amazing!! Communication was very easy with Cristian. Thanks a lot again!

Adventure awaits! Our group of 6 (30 year olds and 60 year olds) have a blast on the river, which was clean and refreshing.

Cristian is a caring, fun, and always safety conscious guide. He's knowledgeable on the area and very fluent in English.

Recommended.

Very special tour with Cristian... we were the only people on the river canyon! He's so knowledgeable and aware of surroundings/ ability of your hiking/swimming.

It's not an easy excursion, it's physically challenging, but SO beautiful and peaceful.

Cristian is an amazing ambassador for Huatulco. Cannot wait to come back and do this again.

A great way to stay cool in Mexico in the middle of the day, on the beautiful Zimatan river. Hiking, swimming, sliding down natural water slides and jumping. We had a fun time.

Christian is a very experienced and patient guide having done this tour over 200 times a year for the past ten years. He is careful to move the tour along at the pace required by the group. You'll need to be reasonably fit to do this tour, but it's lots of fun!
