Rio Copalita (Río Copalita)

O Rio Copalita, ou Río Copalita, é um rio em Huatulco popular entre surfistas e caibros. Durante a estação chuvosa de Huatulco, de maio a outubro, o rio Copalita transborda, tornando-se um local ideal para passeios de rafting. Río Copalita deságua no oceano vários quilômetros a nordeste de Tangolunda. Na praia, é provável que você encontre surfistas locais e praticantes de bodyboard curtindo o tempo. O surfe é tão popular aqui que há um campeonato anual de surfe e bodyboard em Huatulco que data de 2003. O rafting ao longo do Rio Copalita leva os caibros por uma série de corredeiras de adrenalina - tudo desde corredeiras de Classe I a Classe IV. Corredeiras de classe I são consideradas fáceis com água em movimento rápido, mas com poucas obstruções e ondas pequenas. As corredeiras de classe IV são avançadas, com águas turbulentas intensas e risco de obstáculos e ondas inevitáveis. Passeios que incluem rafting em rio normalmente exigem que as vigas viajem entre 8 a 11 km no rio Copalita.

Os guias começarão com as instruções de segurança exigidas e, em seguida, fornecerão exemplos de como usar a raquete de maneira adequada. Cada balsa terá um guia que fornecerá instruções de navegação conforme você atinge cada classe de corredeira.

A paisagem que você vivenciará em uma viagem de rafting no Rio Copalita é insuperável. Nas corredeiras mais lentas de Classe I, é possível observar habitats naturais de animais e pássaros, que vivem em meio à paisagem imaculada da margem do rio. Impressionantes formações rochosas e cachoeiras completam a aventura épica em Huatulco.

How to Get There

The Copalita River runs through the state of Oaxaca, emptying into the ocean just 6.2 miles (10 kilometers) down the coast from La Crucecita. Most river rafting experiences begin at least 7 miles (11 kilometers) inland from the coast, usually more, so tours with round-trip transportation from your hotel are the easiest and most common ways to get to your riverside departure point.

River Rafting on Río Copalita

Rafting along the Copalita River takes rafters through a series of exciting river rapids, from Class I to Class IV rapids. Class I rapids are considered easy—expect fast moving water but few obstructions and small waves—while Class IV rapids are advanced, with intense turbulent water and a risk of unavoidable obstacles and waves. More action-packed Copalita River rafting tours typically require a longer drive time to reach the start point.
