Presidio River Adventure
Fantastic off the beaten path adventure
April 30, 2022
We really enjoyed this excursion in Mazatlan! There were 4 in our group and no one else, so we ended up with a private tour. The river is pretty far from town up in the mountains, but it was worth the long drive, and we didn't see any other kayakers. Definitely a great opportunity to get away from the crowds on the ship. After kayaking, we ate a phenomenal lunch with fresh salsa, guac, flaming cheese, and some of the best tacos and burritos we've had. We also had the chance to taste a few tequilas at the distillery before being brought back to the ship. A wonderful day and so much better than any ship excursion!

We really enjoyed the beautiful, peaceful Presidio River. Our kayak guide was great and very patient with me, as it was my first solo kayak trip. We saw an eagle and some amazing rock formations. There were a few small rapids which were fun to negotiate. The authentic Mexican lunch (beef burritos, flaming cheese dip, guacamole, pico de gallo (which we ground ourselves) was fantastic and we enjoyed being in the small village. We had a small group in the van (7 of us). The 2 of us were the only ones kayaking, so we ended up with a private guide. Everything was on time, too.
