ShoreTrips says...

This soft adventure tour is perfect for less physically active guests, as well as families with young children and those who are "young at heart."

Grab a paddle and get ready to take a ride aboard one of our awesome inflatable rafts!

We'll meet you at the cruise ship pier and set off en route to the famous Rio Bueno, where your adventure begins with a short walk through the rain forest to meet your raft at the starting point.

After some instructions from your friendly, experienced guide, you and the rest of your co-captains will board your 6-person raft and enter the fast flowing water.

With your captain steering the raft from the rear, you'll use teamwork to paddle through the twists and turns of the rushing whitewater rapids. As you enter the deeper sections of the river, feel free to jump into the refreshing water for a swim and admire the natural beauty of your surroundings.

The river currents carry your raft over one final cascade as you pass under an old colonial stone bridge and head towards the Caribbean Sea.

Once at sea, your guide leads you to a private beach for a cool drink and some relaxation time.
