Our guide was extremely sweet, and did a great job of guiding us through the rapids. He pulled over and stopped at the riverbank -- pointed out to us the rustling leaves in the trees which we probably would have never noticed... and let us watch the monkeys swing through the trees for a while. A wonderful, fun day!! Don't... More

BOA organized our rafting trip. We had an excellent guide in the boat who heightened the excitement. The river is rated a level 3 which is safe enough yet fun and exhilarating. We got plenty wet! Lunch is included

The owner Hector was incredible...treated us like family and we just met him that day!! On our way home from the rafting trip, he called... More

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
