Anyone have any good beta (guide services, etc) on the Micos in Mexico?

My understanding was that the campgrounds and a lot of the little stuff below the bigger drop where all washed out last year in a hurricane. I don't know if they have rebuilt yet...

If you're looking for a guide service, there are two that work that area.

agua AZUL Whitewater Kayaking in Mexico is run by Grant Amaral - I've always ran my own trips, but I have had friends go on his guided trips and they had a blast. His camp is right at the base of Micos, too.

I think that Andria & Leland Davis run a program too - It might be just for women, though.

I think this is the company we used for a few shuttles when were down there Thanksgiving of 2007. They also have other services. Kayak Huasteca - Welcome to Mexico!

Here's a link to Leland & Andria's week long clinic: The River Gypsies

I was down there this last December and it looks like everything is back up and functional after the hurricane rains. People were camping and the little stores were all open. Can't wait to go back.

I would definitely try to plan your trip for November; December at the latest. January is too risky for low flows
