The state of Chihuahua is one of the largest in Mexico and is a paradise for ecotourism, characteristics that at the same time make it one of the ideal sites for the so-called adventure tourism. That is why below we mention all the adventure sports in which you can be the protagonist when you take one of the flights to Chihuahua, so get ready to live an adventure full of adrenaline.
This is one of the most popular sports in Chihuahua, because nothing like doing this activity in the Barrancas del Cobre to be completely impacted, although it is more advisable to do it in winter when temperatures drop and leave an even more beautiful picture. There are also Barranca de Candameña, Barranca de Urique, Barranca de la Sinfrosa, Piedra Volada and Cascada de Cuzárare.
This activity full of adrenaline is ideal in the Peña Del Gigante of 884 meters high, the stunning landscapes offered by this view complement this experience in a unique way, because nothing compares to the sensation of descending through those immense rock walls.
However, if what you want is to climb the walls instead of going down, Chihuahua also offers us excellent options. One of these places is located in the heart of the Sierra Tarahumara, Rancho San Lorenzo, which is located within the Casase de Basaseachi National Park and has 54 equipped routes, also inside the Barranca de Candameña is El Gigante, a wall of almost one km high.
Rafting and kayaking
The descents by rivers are one of the most exciting sports, and in Chihuahua, you will be able to find three ideal rivers for this, Papigochi River, Urique River and Bravo River, all these waters are classification 3 in rapids. In the Peguis Canyon, there are calmer waters, class 1 and 2, with spectacular panoramas that will allow you a more relaxed trip to admire the landscape and to get started in this activity.
This is one of the most unusual and exciting adventure sports in Chihuahua, the 17 thousand hectares of the Samalayuca Desert are the perfect scenario to practice this activity, with mounds of 15 to 20 meters high, it is perfect for this ski variation, where you should go well equipped to withstand the great temperatures of the place.
The descent quickly down a mountain path is an incomparable feeling, and if you want to experience it you can go to the Magical Town of Creel. The ideal time to practice it is from September to June, the Barrancas de Batopilas, Del Cobre and Basaseachi are also ideal with perfectly traced routes so that you have a totally pleasant experience, but above all exciting.
Finally, we present you the most risky and difficult activity, and reserved only for experts. The best conditions for this activity are gathered in the Casase de Basaseachi National Park, here is the highest waterfall in the Republic, the Piedra Voladora waterfall of 884 meters.
