Spectacular nature, high adrenaline and first class service
We took the 2-day rafting tour with Tropical Rivers, and this experience will stay with us for a long time. For the three if us, it was the first time rafting, and the guides made us feel safe and well guided at all times. The ride through the pristine canyons of the Pacuare river were breathtaking - you are surrounded by the untouched beauty of the rainforest while floating on the turquoise river that varies between wide and narrow, gentle and wild. At times we hopped off the rafts to float along and enjoy the water and the views. The lodge is absolutely lovely - basic in its amenities, but an oasis of nature, sounds and views. You can hike around the lodge and discover waterfalls, trails and creatures, and the fact that there is no WiFi immediately has a calming and grounding effect. At the same time, the meals are delicious, we got a fabulous home made sangria for happy hour, and everything is freshly prepared for you with care and attention. What made all of this extra special was the wonderful staff - on the river as well as at the lodge. The team of people taking care of us was friendly, helpful and fun to be with at all times. The river guides were also highly professional - Max and Carlos had our trust and confidence even when the raft spun or turned, or the course did not confirm to "Plan A"...thank you to all of the fantastic people involved in this adventure for making our 2 days absolutely unforgettable. Will do again for sure in the future!
