My Favorite Excursion
My husband, sister, and I went Kayaking down the Presidio River near Mazatlan. This excursion was hands down the BEST excursion of the trip.

First, they pick you up at the cruise terminal. Next, they transport you in air-conditioned vans about 45 minutes outside of Mazatlan. Then we switched cars and drove down to the river while the rest of the group drove to the area for zip lining and ATV riding. (This company offers all three options).

When we reached the river we were given a few minutes to put on some sunscreen and go to the bathroom. Heads up: there is no restroom by the river. You just have to find a bush.

After everyone got their life jackets on, we headed down the river. It was so peaceful and beautiful. The weather was slightly warm, and the water was refreshingly cold. It was perfect for kayaking. We kayaked for about 1 1/2 hours. We crossed through about 4 or 5 mini rapids. They were all easy enough for someone with no kayaking experience to navigate.

After kayaking, we travelled for about 10-15 minutes to this shaded outdoor eating area. There were bathrooms there as well, so we were able to change out of our wet clothes and shoes.

The food was AMAZING! It was the best Mexican food I have ever had!!! There were homemade tortillas, salsa, pico, beef burritos, refried beans, guacamole and chips. It was very filling and delicious.

After eating we drove back to Mazatlan in the same air-conditioned van. If we ever go back to Mazatlan, we will definitely book another excursion through Veraneando Adventure.

I also want to mention that this excursion was not available through our cruise line. We initially had some doubts about whether or not this was a safe excursion to take due to the current level 4 travel alert. I honestly felt safe the entire time. We were well taken care of, and looking back we had nothing to worry about.

Hope this review helps those who want an amazing experience while in Mazatlan.

Fun tour, great food but a long drive
Feb. 2020
I have mixed emotions with this review. We enjoyed this river kayaking tour and the included lunch after the kayaking was excellent. The tour group also does and Zipline and ATV ride but we didn't do those.
We had a large group and once we got there, they were short on kayaks but offered to let a few of our group zipline and ATV. The river was fun, but nothing terribly special if you have done it before. The river is pretty tame and good for all ages. The guides were good. Following the river trip, they poovided a lunch that was very delicious. The one drawback for this tour is that it is about 90 minutes away from the cruise port. If you have the time and don't have other plans in Mazatlan, they do a nice job.

Easy River, Great Authentic Lunch! Good Tequila Tour, and more
Feb. 2020
Nice air-conditioned shuttle bus ride up to awesome dam with falls. Good for beginner/intermediate kayakers. Gentle river with some mild white water along the way. Many big and small species of birds hunting fish. A few lone cows along the shores. Spot turtles on the rocks before they dive into the water.

The perfect experience if you want to destress. So quiet, all you hear is gurgling water and birds chirping.

Nice Easy Kayak Trip down the Presidio River
Sep. 2019
My wife and I decided to do a little kayaking outside of Mazatlan. We were picked up at our resort and then met up with our guide and pickup driver. We went to a very remote put-in to the river. Our guide did all the hard work and gave us each a couple bottles of water. The day we went the rapids were minimal. It was a nice 90 minutes or so on the water out in the Mexican wildernes. We saw the Mexican cows, a fisherman who was net fishing and catching tilapia who came to the river on his horses. Then after the take out we were taken to the small village of Veranos. We had quite the spread of burritos with fresh tortilas straight off the grill, salsa that we ground up in the lava bowl, melted cheese, guacomole, tomatoes, chips, and Beer! What a spread. Then we visitied the tequila factory, sampled several varieties (including the one with the snake in the bottle!), then saw the hot springs. There is also a small hotel in town and pool tables, ATV's, ziplining, and horseback riding are all available. A very cool place!
