This was my first time white water rafting. I went with my dad and older brother. From just about the beginning it was nonstop rapids. We went just after it rained so the waters were especially crazy. We were going backwards at one point, the raft folded in two another time, and just nonstop craziness and even scary at points....

Three hours on non-stop class three rapids. Great guides, wonderfully trained, and all about the fun. "Would you like to take the risky or tame route? It doesn't matter, there the same." Spider-monkey's and wildlife are plentiful.

We went rafting in late March of 2014. That's the dry season so the water was low. We asked for a low fear trip and that's what we got. Honestly, it wasn't awesome but we got what we asked for, something where everyone from my 71 year old father to my 9 year old son would not wet their pants... More

On March 21st, my wife and myself ("seniors"), our 29-year-old son, and our great niece and her friend (both age 14) had the pleasure of a day of white-water rafting on Chiriqui Veijo river arranged by Hector Sanchez, something none of us had ever done before. The rafting was exciting (probably on the soft side of Class 3), the river... More

This was our second time white water rafting and we chose CRR because of its positive reviews. Hector the owner runs a tight, effective ship and really cares about your rafting experience and safety. We had a great time chatting with him, he has had interesting life experiences and is an all around great guy. He founded rafting in Panama,... More

We've had a great time rafting down the Chiriqui river. Equipment seemed to be fine (although I've never done this before so nothing to compare it with) and our guides were really knowledgable. Great day and a lot of fun!

The owner of Chiriqui River Rafting is super nice and they have nice hostal on a coffee farm. Our guide, Juan Carlos, was excellent. We ran the Chiriqui Viejo which was a beautiful section with decent rapids, I'm sure it would be much more fun at high water.

This is definetly a fun ride!!! The beauty down the river is indescribeable! Our guide "Tiny" was so much fun, entertaining and really knows that river. I have a bit of fear of water, not being a strong swimmer, but I felt very safe. Go on...be adventurous and get wet!!

Chiriqui River Rafting is a great way to spend a fun day cruising and enjoying the beautiful sights of the Boquete and and Chiriqui Province. Owner and operator, Hector Sanchez, often acts as personal guide and ensures a pleasant day that will be a great memory forever.

The only gripe I have with river rafting is that there are long strips of river where there are no rapids, so it gets a little boring (but you can swim). This is not something they can control, therefore they still deserve 5 stars! The staff were very friendly locals and informs you well ahead of time the dangers involved,... More
