    It was a wonderful ride, 30 km descent down the river. We did with the company Explorers Billboards. Before the rafting was served a good breakfast. The guides explained well the instructions, were prepared and were a lot of fun. I went with my family and we love the ride. The landscape is beautiful, surrounded by forest and the course is challenging, pure adrenaline. It was raining a lot but don't it was cold. Lunch is served along the way, in the Woods in a makeshift tent. We had tacos and burritos in the meal. P me was perfect, I highly recommend for those who like to venture. Another plus point is that they take and give back the tourists in hotels in nearby cities, which is very handy, you have to be moving on their own. The reservation of the tour must be done on the Internet for that company. tb
