The owner of Chiriqui River Rafting is super nice and they have nice hostal on a coffee farm. Our guide, Juan Carlos, was excellent. We ran the Chiriqui Viejo which was a beautiful section with decent rapids, I'm sure it would be much more fun at high water.

This is definetly a fun ride!!! The beauty down the river is indescribeable! Our guide "Tiny" was so much fun, entertaining and really knows that river. I have a bit of fear of water, not being a strong swimmer, but I felt very safe. Go on...be adventurous and get wet!!

Chiriqui River Rafting is a great way to spend a fun day cruising and enjoying the beautiful sights of the Boquete and and Chiriqui Province. Owner and operator, Hector Sanchez, often acts as personal guide and ensures a pleasant day that will be a great memory forever.

The only gripe I have with river rafting is that there are long strips of river where there are no rapids, so it gets a little boring (but you can swim). This is not something they can control, therefore they still deserve 5 stars! The staff were very friendly locals and informs you well ahead of time the dangers involved,... More

My wife and I had never done white water rafting and this was a great first experience. The rapids were exciting but not scary. I never felt in danger. One person did fall out of our raft but we were quick to get him back in and it was no problem at all.

Hector runs a great rafting company. He is an interesting guy with many different businesses. His rafting trip was so much fun. Our guide Juan was great and made sure that we were safe. At one point he even got out of the boat to scout ahead when he noticed some changes in the river. This is a fast and... More

The guide was great. He pointed out monkeys along the way down the river and he was very knowledgeable of the river. Lunch was provided half way through the trip, our group had a pre-teen a few adults plus the guide. It was exciting enough for the adults and safe enough for the pre-teen. The river was just perfect and... More
