This was just a fantastic day, rafting through a beautiful national park on the river Pacuare. The drive is a little arduous, around 2.5 hours, but well worth it. The team were friendly and everything was well organised. The scenery was stunning, the water warm and the rapids just angry enough to make it adventurous without being dangerous.

We, my friends and I, were asked about our age when we announced to our travel agent that we wanted to participate in a white wather rafting. We said 42 years because we wanted it to be good speed on the choice of the river. There is nothing we regret. Even the bus ride up to the start was exciting... More

Beautiful scenery on a river with Class 3 and 4 rapids. There are several nice waterfalls to view as you pass by. Take a waterproof camera with a long cord that you can leash to the straps of the flotation vest.

We had level 3 waters and the ride was so good. This was my first time so much fun. The guides were bi-lingual and very informative with the instructions provided and information on the area.
