This is a nice little hike back into a canyon oasis. Palm trees and transient water pools make this a fun place to explore out in the desert.

After seeing a friend's photos of this area, I added it to my list of "must see" places when we make our annual trek to San Carlos. The road is well marked so the canyon is easy to find, and the grounds, including picnic areas and restrooms, are well maintained by a couple of environmental groups. The path is an easy walk at the beginning but gets rougher and rockier as you advance into the canyon. You can learn a lot about its history and vegetation from signs placed along the trail. Depending on the season of your visit, it'd probably be best to make it an early morning adventure. Even though the canyon walls do provide shade, it can get pretty hot later in the day, . An attendant was present to collect a small fee of 20 pesos for each person choosing to go on the hike. Pack your camera, of course, and plenty of water!

Nacapule Canyon is an experience not to be missed, by hikers, and nature lovers alike.

As you venture into this captivating landscape, it feels like you are taking a step back in
time. It is quiet, and the air smells sugary and sweet, As you make your way up this immense
canyon, you encounter large boulders, with beautiful natural rock formations surrounded by
shrubbery and ancient, wild palm trees.

Knowing there is an Oasis to greet you at the end of this fascinating hike, makes it all
worthwhile. One feels a sense of excitement, after seeing rock walls drizzling with cool water.

Keep your eye out for a roped ladder against a big boulder near the end of the hike. Once you are at the top, you can
view this massive, ancient, and special Canyon feeling a sense of accomplishment and glee.
