Once in the water, you’ll experience sheer exhilaration as you face the challenge of each huge wave and battle surging waters down miles of raging rapids.

In this first day on the river, a journey that takes just over an hour and a half, the river passes through scenic canyons where crystal clear waterfalls plummet down into the rapidly coursing river below. Tall trees and dense green vegetation come right down to the water’s edge. The thick undergrowth of this protected area provides shelter for a variety tropical animals and birds, including some endangered species. As you round the bend, you’ll spy the indigenous-style facilities of the lodge. Here you’ll disembark from your raft and walk up the steps to the main lodge.
