All road travel is by air-conditioned private van on paved highways and rural dirt roads. Most of this program does not involve strenuous activity; however, access to the site of Quiotepec requires about an hour of walking uphill on an uneven trail. Access to the base of the falls at Apoala is via a short but very steep trail. These are optional activities. Access to some of the other sites requires moderate walks on uneven surfaces, climbing and descending steep steps, and standing for an hour or more at a time.
