What you'll do

Around 10 AM the meeting is at CASA CORTEZA, for a short briefing, then we'll head up the hill walking through a series of gates into cattle and agricultural fields, on our way up to enter the edge of the reserve of the Biosphere at the Los Tuxtlas region, in Veracruz. After 30 minutes, we will get to our first stop: an impressive waterhole with a 20 ft waterfall, guests will get a chance for a swim, and some awesome selfies. We will keep hiking up towards¨Pavo Real¨ a spectacular 40 ft Waterfall pouring over a ledge of lava -note that most of this river runs over a Lava Canyon-. The last stop is to the pristine stream that fills up a chain of water ponds that form into several adorable natural pools, where guests could take a refreshing dip, or simply linger at the shore, listening to the relaxing sounds of the jungle, it is also the perfect time to get a well deserved snack. After regaining energy, we will head back, and for those brave at heart, will jump over over the 18 ft ledge at the side of ¨Pavo Real¨ to a clear, safe and fun, adrenaline loaded experience, that also includes birding, geology and nature interpretation. Make this an unforgettable, personal challenge!
