1st Decent After A Decade
The Rio Usumacinta is the most voluminous river in all of Mexico and Central America and forms the border between Mexico and Guatemala. This river was not paddled for about ten years due to bandito threats and an unfortunate attack on a trip. The purpose of this expedition was to reestablish desire to kayak the Grand Canyon of the Maya. Increasing interest in this river again will help curb the current desire to dam the river for hydroelectric power.
