During our ten day stay in beautiful San Agustinillo my girlfriend and I teamed up with another couple and Daniel (our guide) for a trip down a local river canyon. For us it was a great way to see some of the local country (other than the coast) as well as find another way to creatively have some fun during our vacation. The day started with some coffee and sweet bread as we shuttled up to the foothills of the Sierra Madre. Daniel was a great guide all along introducing us to the lay of the land, noting local ecology (birds and trees) and describing the communities we passed through. The river itself was beautiful and the water was clean and refreshing after swimming in the ocean all week. The sculpted rocks and boulders were reminiscent of some of my home rivers in the Green Mountains but with a tropical feel. Fun cliff jumps and bouldering above deep pools were highlights for me. Daniel has an infectious enthusiasm and we were smiles all day long. The trip was not overly technical nor was it overly easy - it was just a fun thing to do as part of our overall great week in the Agustinillo area. Basically -who doesn't want to walk, swim, float, and jump into a beautiful wild river!? Oh yeah besides just being really personable and fun to be around we appreciated that Daniel spoke English well (as our Spanish needs work) and found it fun that he had spent a number of years as a guide in the states and knew some of our favorite spots including our current home in Colorado. Whether rafting during the wet season or canyon hiking during the dry season you won't regret spending some time with Ola Verde.

We spent several days in Mazunte. Daniel and Janet were our guides and brought us on a lovely Ocean tour and an amazing river rafting trip. We were so well taken care of, every comfort thought of and safety was first and foremost at all times. Daniel and Janet- you made our trip the most memorable ever! If you go to the Mazunte area, don't miss out- contact OlaVerde expeditions and spend as much time as you can having them help you experience the area. Everything you need is included, food, joy and more! I will not forget tasting a raw coffee bean or trying my first ever river raft trip.We were treated like well loved family and fell in love in return. We hope to see you next year and say hello to your parents, whom we met- we loved them!! Come see us anytime. Mi casa es su casa. Anne and Phil.

We spent the day rafting with our friends from Ola Verde Expediciones, it was an amazing experience. Danny and Janeth are great guides and friends they made us feel really confortable and safe.
The upper copalita river was at its best for us "not experienced rafters" we enjoyed for a few ours great views of unspoiled jungle, with huge trees and lots of animals. we really felt out there, all our worries faded for a magical number of hours wile we were stunned by the beauty of it all.
I feel that Danny and Janeth came to San Agustinillo to enrich our lives and the comunity.... great work guys.... we love ya.

Today we went for a river hike with daniel as our guide. It was an amazing and exciting trip. We had already some experience in river hiking in europe and this was still demanding. It was really adventurous to climb on the rocks next to the river and jump from it into the streams. We can fully recommend this trip!

My friend and I went down a canyon river guided by Danielle. we are 60+ year old women so not your usual clients. Daniel was a great guide a teacher..making us feel safe but also encouraging us to stretch our limits..we ended up jumping off 15 foot boulders and floating down class 3 rapids! In the end we felt like little girls again playing in the water!
