  • Bus picks you up early and takes you to your local, there awaits an overwhelming breakfast. Mood who do so to feed herself well, should be rowing hard. After 30 min of bus, which are passed to flying because they make you the talk of security, arrive to the river... the adventure begins. In the first sections you're practicing and do you right away, then you enjoy. You eat half way, again I stress eat well, and protect yourself from the Sun! It is a super place magical, natural and unique. Something pure that you can live only there. My guide was a long-haired guy (I don't remember the name, sorry) super cute, fun, and very composed. They are very cool and quality people. He would return to practice rafting with them without a doubt
