Ive been coming to Pagosa Springs with family and friends for several years. Ive taken people rafting every time we come. We have always used Pagosa Outside as our outfitter. We have always been treated very well, and have a wonderful time. I just brought my family (my wife and I have sons 19 & 21) and two families with... More

My husband and I have spent a lot of time in Pagosa Springs but have never been here when we could white water raft. We got to go today with James and his team at Pagosa Outside. Great views and lots of water action. If you are adventurist, try it. We went for the 3 to 4 hour ride and... More

Thanks for rafting with us and thanks for your review. The Mesa Canyon trip you took is the trip that Pagosa is known for. Lots of cool history, geology, nature, and fun splashy whitewater for the whole family. Kudos from folks who drag race cars for thrills means that we must be doing something right. Good luck and keep it... More

Easy to park and walk around. Beautiful parks, trees and walking trails.Pet Friendly and lots of seats. We were there on a weekday so it wasn't overly crowded and you can feel the springs from anywhere in the area.

The people of Pagosa Outside are outstanding! Super friendly, very knowledgeable about the surrounding area, and them really seem to love what they are doing. Our family has been up three times this year from New Mexico, and each day spent on the river has been a lot of fun for all. We even got to see deer come right... More

We spent the afternoon tubing down the river and had a great time. Both our kids, 11 and 13, loved doing this.

We took our 5 & 7 year old tubing on the river ($15 for 2 hours, $25 for all day). The shuttle drives you about a mile upriver and drops you off with your tube. Super friendly driver (don't remember his name, guy from Texas). It's a beautiful float down river - there are small rapids so I had my... More

Thanks for taking the time to share your review. Great advice about life jackets for the kids. We have them to rent for anyone from 30 lbs and up. When I take my kiddo tubing, we usually spend more time warming up and playing in the riverside hot springs than we did tubing. Hope to see your family again for... More

We recently took an all-day raft trip (the upper and lower Piedra) with Pagosa Outside. We were absolutely delighted with our experience and will go with them again the next time we have the opportunity. Let's start with professionalism. Since both my wife and I are a bit older than the typical whitewater rafters, we were concerned about picking a... More

Our rafting trip through Pagosa Outside was wonderful. Our tour guide, Matt, did a great job and was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He made it an enjoyable experience that I would recommend to anyone. The San Juan River is surrounded by beautiful scenery and the rapids were perfect for us. Overall we had a great time and would love to... More

We took the West Fork trip down the San Juan, and I have to give Pagosa Outside outstanding marks. The staff at the shop was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Mother Nature was less than accommodating to us with chill winds, rain, and even hail. Despite that, we had a fabulous time. The equipment that Pagosa Outside provided was modern, clean,... More
