Spanish term or phrase: distinction between "barranquismo" and "descenso de cañones"
A tourist tract from Granada, Spain. According to previous Proz questions and my reading on the subject the two terms mean the same ("canyoning"), yet here they are making a distinction.

que busquen una válvula de escape a su vida diaria, la Asociación XXXXXX propone que practique el descenso de cañones, rutas guiadas en vehículos 4x4, barranquismo en el río Castril y Río Verde y en diversas zonas de La Alpujarra.
