Going to Matacanes is one of the most fun experiences that you can live near Monterrey, but we warn you it is an activity for the most enthusiastic and daring.
This place, called Matacanes Canyon, is located in the city of Santiago and is situated inside the National Park Cumbres de Monterrey, approximately one and a half hours from downtown Nuevo León.
The experience begins with a ride on a 4x4 vehicle that will take you and your companions along a rocky path full of cliffs to get to Potrero Redondo. From there you must walk through a beautiful path until you reach an impressive 27 meter tall water fall. Here is where the action begins.
In this waterfall you will have to do a rappel descent to reach a stone ledge and then do a 4 meter high jump down into the water. Sounds risky right? Well this is just the beginning of what will be an exciting and magnificent 12 kilometer journey through waterfalls, beautiful underground caves and lots of jumps into water, the tallest one being from a 12 meter height. Are you ready to experience this adventure?
Throughout the walk you will discover beautiful places full of nature and turquoise waters ready to be explored. Definitely it is an extreme ride but it is also full of fun and you will be amazed by nature while challenging your physical and mental boundaries.
If you would like to take this beautiful tour, remember to plan in advance because it is between 8 and 10 hours long. We also recommend to do it with a certified guide and the special equipment required for this activity.
