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.

At the takeout it's a short 100 yard walk to the Huasteca Secreta restaurant site overlooking the Salto del Meco. And of course, the bar is always open....

The final night we finished with a beach party near the river - good times for all as we said good bye to Mexico and the friends we had made down there.

A big final thanks goes out to our hosts for the trip and our new friends - Juani and his kids and staff showed us a fantastic time in the Mexican Huasteca. I'm sure we'll be the first of many kayakers to visit them!
