We had a truly amazing time paddling down the river with a really great guide. The river was not too rough but it did present a couple of interesting rapids that gave us a hard time with a few capsizing. Scenery and whole experience was truly amazing and really authentic. a must do! We were on a catered trip and it was really well organized with excellent meals all round.
