Mexico Creeking ClinicsTrip Report - December 2007
In December of 2007, we branched out our creeking clinics to include 2 week-long classes on the warm rivers and waterfalls of San Luis Potosi state in Mexico. Forming a partnership with the brand new Huasteca Secreta resorts, we headed south of the border for a couple of weeks of boofing, waterfalling, eating and sight-seeing.
The resort at Tamul is remote to say the least. Here's the basic rundown on how you get there: first, you drive dirt backroads for a while, passing through a couple of unmarked gates and turns in the middle of nowhere. Then you park, and cross the Gallinas River.
And the prize when you get there? It's an evening and morning looking out over one of the most incredible natural wonders I've ever seen - the 300 foot Cascada de Tamul!
We were the first people to stay up there - enjoying a quiet night in the wilderness. The power was not yet on and the kitchen not built, so it was rustic and really cool.
