We took two trips out to Nacapule Canyon, one for hiking and the other for the zip line. Our first trip was for hiking. No one was there, during the week, so we hopped the fence. If they had had an envelope and a place to insert our twenty peso fee, per person, we would have paid. But, they didn't... More

Our family enjoyed this canyon.It is a hidden gem in the middle of the desert.It even has seasonal rainfalls. There are zip lines, and a variety of terrain.

I was surprised when we arrived we had to pay to hike into the canyon and were told it was privately owned. I thought it was a public nature hike. Also surprised to see the set up for zip line through part of the canyon. We did not see any other hikers the whole time we were there. Great place... More

This hike branches into possibilities for one long diverse hike, which was our choice , or several smaller hikes. It's a scenic beautiful place to spend the day with hardly anyone there(weekday). We saw beautiful canyon views, went through caves and saw diverse scenery. The waterfalls was a bit of a disappointment as there was no water flowing when we... More

Beautiful sights and a great mix of shade and sun, as well as diverse terrain. Bring extra water as it gets hotter than expected in the sunny spots.

You need to be in fairly good physical condition if you want to experience all that Nacapule has to offer. You can take a easy walk into the canyon, but you cant get into the back of either canyon without scrambling up and down rocky sections. I suggest you go to the end of the canyon directly ahead to the... More

Walking in takes about 30 min to get to the fork in the road....take the left one or you will be hiking forever! Fun rocks, and canyon views up close. Walked with two hiking sticks as I had a total knee replacement. a fun experience.

This is a beautiful canyon for a short hike. You start out in desert vegetation and as you enter the canyon it turns into this beautiful green vegetation. Finally the locals are starting to realize the real gem this canyon is. Now there are other options like zip lines and we saw some mountain climbers. There are still areas where... More

We took this hike with another family and our kids. The kids ages ranged from 6 to 14. We had to help the little one a couple of times but we were all able to complete it.
