The concept for introducing more people to beautiful places full of exuberant nature emerged from a dream among climbing friends. Those locations that are challenging to reach and necessitate specialized tools and methods to appreciate them. This is how Carlos and a group of friends began their journey in 2008 to establish their tour operator, a goal that would enable them to share the most stunning and undiscovered locations in Mexico with more people.

With the addition of Laura, Carlos' life partner and a passionate supporter of Mexican culture who is also French in heart, to the team, fate transformed the business along this lovely trip into a French-Mexican one. Since then, the little business that keeps making passengers' dreams come true in each of its steps has successfully expanded internationally.

The concept for introducing more people to beautiful places full of exuberant nature emerged from a dream among climbing friends. Those locations that are challenging to reach and necessitate specialized tools and methods to appreciate them. This is how Carlos and a group of friends began their journey in 2008 to establish their tour operator, a goal that would enable them to share the most stunning and undiscovered locations in Mexico with more people.

With the addition of Laura, Carlos' life partner and a passionate supporter of Mexican culture who is also French in heart, to the team, fate transformed the business along this lovely trip into a French-Mexican one. Since then, the little business that keeps making passengers' dreams come true in each of its steps has successfully expanded internationally.

Extremely knowledgeable, fun and professional!

Tour guides were extremely patient and encouraging for first timers. They made the experience very fun from the trip there, the canyoning, the meal and trip back. They were professional, knowledgeable and their focus on safety was unparalleled. That said, the guides were warm and friendly and made us feel very welcomed.

Exploring the best climbing Mexico has to offer.

I had two great days of climbing with Exxi in two very different locations, Jilotepec and the Peña de Bernal. My first day had to be postponed because of bad weather, but Exxi worked with me to rearrange for a suitable date. The experience was tailored around me and it was clear that my guides were passionate and knowledgeable about the area. The actual climbing felt like I was out with friends rather than being dragged up the rock, my guides trusted in my ability and experience. I would recommend Exxi and would happily go out with them again when I come back to Mexico.

Excellent trip to share with your family, Exxi give several MTB level options for this trip

As always ( this is my 4th trip with Exxi) the best trip and the best guide. As a father and husband, for me is very important to know that a extreme sport company is professional, because they care for the most important for me,my son and my wife. Thanks for the trip Carlos and Exxi team, we will join you soon in a new adventure.
