What you'll do

This is an action-packed full-day experience in "Las Estacas" nature park. "Las Estacas" is nature's perfect lazy river. The water is crystal-clear. Depth varies from 3 to 20 ft. Current varies from mild to strong. The swimmable part is 1-km long surrounded by exhuberant vegetation. You can swim against the current, or leisurely glide in the water while glancing the fauna. Or both, repeatedly, up and down the stream, for a swimmer's training session of a lifetime. After the swim we can go jumping off of 2 tree swings and platforms along the riverside, or raft riding. Younger swimmers will enjoy the heated pools in the mini water park. Families have a blast time too. General schedule is this: 7:30 am - meet up and breakfast. 10:30 am - arrival at Las Estacas, change clothes! 11:00 am - swim start 12:30 pm - raft ride 2:00 pm - lunch break 3:30 pm - sun-bathing / time-off 5:00 pm - departure to Mexico City Meet up and farewells will take place at a restaurant south of Mexico City.
