Hautulco offers many tours but we recommend that you go to talk with Stephen and Heriberto at Aventura Mundo.We booked the Copalita River Rafting tour in 2010 and again this year.The tour lasts about 4 hours. Just before the rafting part of this excursion we stopped at an Iguana farm.The guide at the Iguana Farm was friendly and informative and we got us close and personal with very large iguanas. This program is a hands-on iguana protection facility. We then made our way to the river bank where Stephen gave us safety lessons about rafting and provided life jackets to everyone. It is a relaxing and exciting experience.The rapids are class 1 or 2 and lots of fun to manoeuvre!!This year the rapids on .We rented scooters as well and toured La Crucicita and drove to the Bocana to have a mud bath from the locals.It was inexpensive to rent the scooters and they drove excellent! Stephen is a friendly, informative and fun guy ! We look forward to returning to Huatulco and rafting and sightseeing again!!!

We do the river rafting trip every year when in Huatulco. The excursions lasts half a day, starting at an Iguana farm near where Hwy 200 crosses the Copalita river. Although they aren't actually nesting at this time of year, the guides show the steps involved from when the iguana lay and bury their eggs, to when the staff start to take care of the babies once they're born. Lots of iguanas of various ages. Very informative.

From here, we drive about 5 minutes, back across the highway, and down to the river bank. The guides prepare the raft, provide life jackets, and a quick safety presentation. On some trips, we've been part of a large group with two rafts, but on this occasion, it was just the two of us with the guide. Our guide, Sam, was on loan to Aventura Mundo, as one of the regular guides, Stefan, was sidelined due to an injury. Sam knew the river well, and provided us with a wonderful and relaxing trip down the Copalita River. We always see or learn something different every year we do this excursion. The views of the mountains behind us are always spectacular. Tour lasts about 3-4 hrs.

This year, the mouth of the river provided us direct access to Bocana beach! Some years, the rainy season leaves Bocana beach inaccessible, and we have to end the tour just short of the beach, and take the van around. When on Bocana beach, we stopped for lunch and a drink, before they took us back to our hotel.

If you visit Huatulco in December or early January, there are better rapids to raft down higher up in the mountains, but this time of year, only the lower portion of the river is accessible, and that's plenty good for us! Look forward to going again next year!

We were looking for a way to see the area on our own without using a taxi. We went to their establishment with the intention of renting bicycles. Once we checked out all the cool things they had to rent, we decided to rent scooters. For $45, we rode everywhere for 4-6 hrs.What a great deal. Very friendly and helpful. Right across the street from Barcelo and Dreams.Check them out.!

Fun! Fun! Fun! What an awesome, beautiful, relaxing experience! The team of Aventura Mundo did a fantastic job of accomodating our large group for a Full Moon Float down the Copalita River to La Bocana for a campfire on the beach and drinks and appetizers, Lots of fellowship and meeting new friends with the magical addition of the presence of a full moon. Thank you for the wonderful experience.
