“Had a great time! Definitely worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Great time on class three rapids. These people know their rivers and let you have fun the entire time. We were able to swim in some beautiful pools while the guides got the rafts ready. The rafting was fun and exciting. Able to swim in some areas, etc... The water is cold however so if it is a cold and rainy day - wear a wet suit. Great prices as well for a full day rafting and lunch. We rafted 37 km!

“Amazing rafting trips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I took a number of rafting trips with River People last year and was really impressed. At first, I ran the 2 most popular day trips, which are a great option if you don't have a lot of time (or money). The class III is fun if you have some people in your group who are slightly nervous about rafting; however, the Jondachi/Hollin trip is not to be missed if you're prepared for more thrills- just some really amazing scenery and waterfalls coming into the river. These led to my obsession with rafting and I came back last fall to try the two overnight trips with some friends (which I should also add are tailored to a thrill-heavy crowd). Both trips were great (the Quijos, and the Hollin) but the remoteness of the Hollin was pretty unforgettable. We left and didn't see another person until we returned 2 days later, with some great jungle scenery. However, do not attempt if you're not ready for some serious paddling.

All the guides we had were really great- all of them have a ton of experience but were also a lot of fun. They take safety pretty seriously (which is good and smart in my opinion) and scout and portage rapids if necessary when they are dangerous. Still, we had plenty of thrills, that's for sure. The lunch and food on all the trips is pretty incredible. They were also great about corresponding with us while setting up and organizing the trips.

Overall, a great company that can do it all, from fun family day trips to seriously challenging and rewarding overnight trips.

“Exciting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

We had a great class IV day long rafting trip, meal and whitewater. The staff was atuned to the adventerous nature of our teen boys and made it extra exciting. Thanks to Tim and Washington.
