Whitewater rafting was brilliant! I went in the dry season so for my first time doing this activity it was perfect for me so it wasnt "too extreme". The tour guide was briliant and spoke great English and was a really nice guy. The food on the day was great, I have nothing negative to say :)

My husband and I had a blast! We had Reynaldo as our guide and he was fantastic! This was our first time river rafting and took to it really well with the help of Rey it was a team effort. My husband and I worked really hard and due to low waters it definitely a work out. We saw an incredible waterfall and Rey taught us about the flora and fauna in the area. We were feed an incredibly delicious lunch 3/4 of our way we stopped on a little dry bank where they catered fresh fruit and sandwiches. We even saw some indigenous Indians that live in the area! Due to this river rafting trip we are hooked and will be booking more river rafting trips in our future adventures.. Big thanks to Ray!
