Usumacinta rafting tours (Grand Canyon of the Maya): Yaxchilán
At SierraRios LLC, we offer and outfit rafting and kayaking expeditions on Río Usumacinta through the GRAND CANYON OF THE MAYA. Río Usumacinta offers one of the funnest and most exotic rafting trips in the world, passing through the heart of the Classical Mayan jungle areas. On this tour, you'll stop, visit and camp at two of the major Mayan ruins: Yaxchilán and Piedras Negras. You are guaranteed to hear howler monkeys and enjoy the warm river and its exciting class II and III rapids. To raft the full canyon requires 6-7 days. We provide fully guided tours or basic outfitting service (for experienced groups of boaters). Rates vary based on the number of days for the tour, the number of participants in your group and the level of service you desire, but are generally $700-1400/pp. We have friendly trusting relationships with the residents along the river and employ security. We have safely run >30 trips on the river between 2011 and 2018 and are the major provider of this service.

We offer and outfit rafting and kayaking expeditions through the Grand Canyons of the world. These are trips similar to those through the Grand Canyon of the Colorado but usually on less developed, more rugged rivers with little visitation. Trips are a minimum of ~7 days but generally average 12-14 days. To raft through the some Grand Canyons requires ~30 days. We provide fully guided tours or basic outfitting service (for experienced groups of boaters). Rates vary based on the number of days for the tour, the number of participants in the group and the level of service desired. Our main goal is river conservation, which we accomplish through publicity, bringing more people to the rivers we seek to protect, and working with employing local residents to protect their free-flowing rivers.
