I've stayed in the Far Flung Casita's twice now, for a week both times. Nice clean rooms with a kitchenette and outdoor BBQ grill. Great people. Great service.

Although the scenery and guide were excellent, the value for your money on this excursion was poor in my opinion. $84 per person for a less than 2 hour canoe float is excessive. Again, the guide and the views were excellent, but for an off...More

We took a 1-day river trip on 12/24/2018 (Monday, Christmas eve). It was such a fun trip. First, I really liked how Far Flung operated their business. They were totally focus on the activity and didn't even try to sell us anything extra (such as...More

The level of Rio Grande river in mid – December wasn’t high so it was just possible to have a half day canoeing tour. But it was amazing. The guide Neil (from Colorado) had great experience with canoeing , providing great tips to paddle. He...More
