We took the Class 3 section of the Rio Balsa with this rafting company. All of the guides are very professional and before you ever step foot in the raft they make sure that you understand all the safety proceedures. The equipment is top notch. The river is absolutely awesome and the majority of it keeps you busy. One great feature was that one of the guides took photo's of our group as we went down the river. At the end of the run we were picked up by minibus and transported to a lunch location to change into dry clothes. Lunch was buffet style and really good. A CD of our over 200 photo's was available for $30.00 USD. Expensive but worth it as the photo's are really good. Discovered if you view them as a slideshow and hold the forward button it becomes a movie. I would highly recommend this rafting company to anyone wishing to do this kind of activity. I can not comment on the cost of this tour as it was included in our vacation package. You don't have to be young to do this just young at heart.
