Behind the Zapopan’s urban façade, hide many great natural secrets which offer an excellent option for adrenaline lovers. Endure the wind while riding a mountain bike or rappel down the local waterfalls. Wake up surrounded by towering canyons in The rift of Santiago River, while venturing into nature’s mysteries.
Only a few minutes away from the urban environment, we find the Forest of Spring, home of the Chivas soccer team stadium as well as of thousands of species of plants and animals. More than 30 thousand hectares available for camping, riding bikes or even horseback riding!
Another of the local forests is called The Sentinel where dozens of people get together every weekend with their family or friends to wander through its many paths and discover its secrets. Notice the excellent work done by their most recent reforestation program. They also offer environmental workshops and outdoor cultural activities.
If adrenaline is what you need, venture into the mountains of Huaxtla, where a hidden paradise awaits you. Take a walk down to its springs, walks among the rumor of the streams. Take a look at El Diente, unique rock formations which are perfect for rappelling. And last but not least, visit the Rift of Santiago River, an imposing panorama with large canyons that shelter an important part of the flora and fauna of the Sierra Madre Occidental.
