Everything was perfect on this rafting trip! The guides and drivers were very knowledgeable and also very friendly and professional. We were picked up right on time, and our rafting guide Marco was great with my whole family. We were a bit lucky as we did this trip late in the dry season, but it rained in the mountains the day before, so we had some fun rapids and fast water on our trip.

It was a beautiful ride to the river with our guides providing lots of knowledge of the area. The trip itself was amazing ! We flipped our raft and our guides were amazing and made sure we all returned safely.

Great experience for the family. We had a knowledgeable guide who fun and entertaining. Even the ride to the river was fun on the open air bus through the forest. The waterfall stop was also a highlight!

Amazing fast fun ride!
