About
The water of Matacanes Canyon has been flowing for thousands of years and thus creating mystical shapes in its bed. The crystal clear waters of the river are suitable for swimming and offer a true experience of untouched nature with its cliffs up to 12 meters high, waterfalls, natural pools, subterranean tunnels and a 30 meters unique waterfall.
The guide will give you a life-jacket, a helmet, neoprene wetsuit, harness, and the expedition is ready to set off.
 The sound of the river becomes louder as you descend into the canyon, for almost 12 kilometers you will be surrounded by beautiful landscapes and nature. Walking through the river and the rapids, going through the subterranean tunnels and caves, swimming in natural pools, going around waterfalls and lakes - all of this is canyoning!

AMAZING!
Oct 2021
Our trip to Matacanes was AMAZING! The area was extremely beautiful and you get to see some very unique sights. I was impressed with the guides, they were always there to help you through the harder areas and anticipated your needs and safety.

The company needed to be a little better with communication before the trip because some of the information was not delivered clearly. Also, we camped and had to set up our tent in the dark and they kept giving us broken equipment. It would have been nice if they had it ready for us.

Overall, it was a great experience. I would do it again with Gaia and recommend them to others.

I can't wait to go again!
Oct 2021
My friends and I had an amazing time with Gaia Extreme in Matacanes! The trip is incredible, both in physical beauty and in the excitement of the jumps, rappelling, and hiking. I would love to go back. The guides are very helpful and supportive all along the way.

I would encourage their team to improve the pre-trip communications so that people have more time to prepare the appropriate clothing and supplies.

An amazing time in the canyons
Aug 2021
This was one of the best tours I have done! Matacanes itself is amazing. Gaia Xtreme provides the wet suit, helmet, harness, snacks (but also bring your own), 3+ experienced tour guides, transportation from/to Monterrey, and a meal in the end. I would definitely do it again.

Awesome experience!
Jun 2021 • Friends
All in all, we had an incredible time and do not regret spending the day with Gaia Xtreme and their crew! The scenery, waterfalls and caves are awesome.
Cedrick, Lili, Carlos, Julio and Pablo were honestly such attentive and amazing tour guides and hosts.
There was a small language barrier during the booking process as to what you can and cannot, should and should not bring... however, I am visiting this country and they made me feel very welcome even though my spanish is not fluent.
If you like adventure, the beauty is well worth it!!!

Absolutey fun and exciting challenge!
May 2021
This experience was great! If you're in shape and you like hikes this is the one for you.

Gaia Xtremes team were very professional, friendly, and confident in this tour. They made sure to tell us everything we were about to do and how best to do it.
Pro tip, that big backpack you want to bring, you don't need. They provide a helmet, harness, life jacket, and wet suit. Our hike finished at 4:45pm after starting at around 6 or 7am. If you're acclimated for endurance you'll just need a bottle of water and 2 protein bars.

Gopros you can rent from them. A big camera leave at home. They take pictures for you. Good shoes are a must! There are many slippery rocks. You want some rubber grip. Not slippery running shoes.

The guides are very helpful. Most are bilingual and are fully capable of assisting in any questions before the tour and during. Cedrick was my point of contact and he did a fantastic job settling any doubts. They won't let you fail.

Definitely doing this every time I fly back to Monterrey!

THE BEST EXPERIENCE!
Sep 2020
This tour was the best! It was a full day (about 10 hours) of jaw-dropping views, spectacular scenery, and extreme adventure! My friends and I stayed in the tipis and woke up in the morning to a warm breakfast of coffee and pancakes. The day was followed by a lot of exercises; walking, hiking, 2 repels, many natural slides, and cliff jumping into crystal clear waters! The guides were very professional, always with a smile, and made me feel reassured and safe. The next day you will be sore but it is SOO worth it! I will definitely be repeating this excursion in the future!

Thank you Gaia Xtreme Tours for unforgettable memories!
