I highly recommend a white water rafting trip on the Pacuare river. I can even more highly recommend Explor Natura as a guide. We had a very good experience with them. Our booking guide Massi made everything very easy. He even answered our frantic call when we got lost on the way to our hotel the night before. We had lost our luggage on the flight and he helped us stop by a store to get some clothes. The guy was a saint!
As for the rafting, it is a great experience. Amazing views and a lot of fun for the family. However, you need to be prepared to get wet and paddle hard. Also, if you do not like risky activities, either request slower rapids in advance (Class 2 and 3), or skip this adventure altogether. If you do the class 3 and 4 rapid trip, you need to pay attention and be prepared to row, hang on, jump, etc. I would not ride Class 5 rapids if you have no experience. This is not just a ride down the river, it is a sport.
Also, weather can play a big factor so check reviews before you leave, be prepared for cancellations (esp. in wet season), and make sure you use a reputable operator that knows where/when it is and is not safe to ride the river. Again, highly recommend Explor Natura.
