“Kayaking the Viejo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Excellent set up, we arrived in Panama to kayak as there is not a guide book we dropped in to see Jim. He was very helpful and even jumped in our van to show us the local run advising on water levels and so on, class. We found loads of info and paddled on our own the next day. We took up on Jim's offer to paddle with him one day when he was safety kayaking and had some lunch with his raft trip. Lovely food and great river, well organised and professional trip.

Many thanks Jim, hopefully come back one day when it rains a little more..

“awesome trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Great time on Chiriqui Viejo River. Experienced guides that love their job. Constant rapids to keep us on our toes. They even took plenty of photos and put them on Flickr for free!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We did the half day white water rafting, i dont know what else to say other than fabulous! We had a great dingy of people, the two guys taking us were great fun, we did not stop laughing. A must do! The rapids are great, and we didnt realise a great little lunch was also thrown in! Excellent day.

“Great Whitewater Rafting experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

I went with Jim and his guys to the Whitewater Rafting on Chiriquí viejo close to the Costa Rican Border. I had a lot of fun with them and can only recommend to go with them.
The equipment was good and the guides professional. I felt absolutely safe at all times. And as my boat partner fell out of the boat one time, our guide (Pepito) pulled him back into the boat within seconds.
Jim was in a Kayak and made Photos that you can get from him later via Flickr.
In total I absolutely can recommend the trip to everybody, who likes fun, adventure and nature (we saw some monkeys in the trees).

“Must do in Boquete!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

First time rafting-- guides were professional and fun. Beautiful river (class 3/4 rapids), amazing lunch (fresh fruits, veggies, sandwiches, and dessert mid trip)... Make sure to wear sunscreen and reapply!

Other than my trip to Boca Chica this excursion was by far my favorite. It's a must do in Boquete!
