Wanted to spend sometime off the resort so decided to go rafting. Rafted before in Ottawa Canada so familiar to rafting.
The overall experience was fine.
Price paid was okay.
Bus driver was fine.
Tour guide on bus was good and very informative during the trip.
River guide on boat was alright.
Breakfast and lunch at the rafting place was nothing special but was fine.
Now the actually rafting was fun but a little short.....maybe two hours on the water. Very scenic but not very challenging if you have been rafting before. Very little paddling needed. You just let gravity take you down the river and over a few drops/waterfalls. Not very treacherous except you have to avoid all the rocks and boulders on the river. Unlike in Ottawa, the chances of flipping the raft and ending in the water is low.
One warning, the bus ride to and from the river is long......2.5 hours each way so the event while only 2 hours on the water takes a whole day. If you just want to raft it's a LONG day. If you don't mind long bye drives to see the countryside and pass through the 2nd largest city Santo Domingo than it's okay.
For the price paid I feel the excursion was worth it to try something fun off the resort but might not be for the experienced rafter or adrenaline junkie as there was no real danger or crazy Rapids.
