We booked a day trip with Chiriqui rafting and had a great time. The owner (Hector) is helpful and made the entire booking process simple. The guides were enthusiastic. The rafting was fast and exciting but safe enough that I wasn't worried about my 12 year old at all. We also booked 2 nights in Hector and Linda's bunkhouse. It... More

Definitely book your tour once you get to Boquete. I emailed the guy for this and he charged $80.00 p/p. Once we got there we realized that most places are just as good an only charge $65.00 p/p with the same amenities. Otherwise the scenery was good and the guides were very friendly.

This was an awesome experience. We had between 3 and 3 1/2 hours on the water and it was tons of fun. There were lots of rapids, and the guide gave instructions (in English) to keep us safe. We did not capsize (although according to the guide it happens fairly often). I never felt in danger but it was still... More

My wife an I joined a rafting trip. It was action packed and we made tons of friends. The bus took a little over two hours to get to the location, which is near the border with Costa Rica. We got into the raft and launched on our 5 hours rafting journey (including an hour for lunch. Our guide, Tini,... More

As a professional river guide in water up to class V, I anticipated a great Class 3 + trip. Had my GoPro on my helmet and sat up front with another young kid with a GoPro. Unfortunately the front of the raft had no foot holds like the thwarts in the mid section and back so I flipped out twice... More

Chiriqui River Rafting was an amazing experience! It was my first time water rafting and had a great time! The staff picked me up in front of Hotel Palo Alto and also dropped me back at hotel. The guides were really cool, and spoke both english and spanish. The guides also gave us clear instructions before heading out to the... More

Had a beautiful morning to raft down the river. With all the rain it was moving fast !! Guides were great directing us and recovering those that went for a swim. Wonderful lunch provided along the river bank was just perfect. A great day, shame they are building a dam that will maybe do away with the rafting ? Sure... More

Chiriqui river rafting, was very good first we meet Hector the owner to give us the welcome to this adventure. The rafting was very good and the most important was safe. The guides Eusebio and Humberto were great. Three hour experience unforgetable. It worth it.

This is a great and fun adventure. There was plenty of excitement,but it was at an acceptable level for the faint of heart. Do not expect to stay dry, as within two minutes of launch, you're pretty much soaked from head to toe. The only downside for us was that we picked up this tour in Boquete and it was... More
