Welcome to MayanWhiteWater.com...

chixoy canyon, guatemala

"Northern Central America" includes the land of the ancient Maya and these modern-day states:
  1. Chiapas. This is Mexico's southernmost state, which includes famous jungle-waterfall rivers like the Jataté and Santo Domingo, and also holds many unknown creeking gems.
  2. Belize. Known for its island reefs, Belize has some of the densest wildlife in Central America and some unique rivers.
  3. Guatemala. Here you will find the highest mountains of Central America, as well as the largest number and variety of rivers.
  4. El Salvador. This small country has the best surfing in the region, and some good rivers to boot.
  5. Honduras. Almost as many rivers and as much variety as Guatemala.

Click one of the links at the top of the page to investigate further. Note that some of the rivers listed on this site do not have a description associated with them, yet. I'll be adding them as time permits. Chiapas, Belize, and Guatemala are covered in the guidebooks.
