We got a tour with motorbikes and two guides. We hiked with our tubes to the second put in, which was a bit of a hike in flip flops but well worth it! Fun tubing and beautiful river. The hike was pretty as well.

Definitely go tubing when in palomino! They took us uphill with motorbikes which was already a bit adventurous. Then it is still a 25 min walk (with tube on your shoulder) to the start. You sweat like crazy but its really worth it. And when...More
