Try this new extreme adventure!

After meeting you at the pier, we'll set off en route to the famous Rio Bueno. When we arrive at the river boarding site, you'll meet your experienced tour guides, who will be with you every step of the way to ensure your safety and full enjoyment.

After a brief training exercise, we'll cross the rope bridge (8-10 feet over the river) and take a short hike through the rain forest, following the path until we reach the starting point of the course.

Grab your river board and leap into the refreshing water, instantly cooled and ready to begin your incredible journey downstream! With your guide in the lead, you'll navigate through the exciting course using your hands and legs to steer over whitewater rapids and splashing cascades.

The currents take you to the mouth of the river and into the Caribbean Sea, where you'll paddle your river board towards shore and on to a private beach. At the beach, you'll have some time to relax or take a dip in the warm ocean water.
