"What an amazing time! My boyfriend and I had never been rafting and were a bit nervous since the rapids were a bit stronger during our trip, but our guide was such a professional we knew we were in good hands. While other guides wanted to flip the raft, we stayed upright the entire time. Some rafts had up to 7 people. We were lucky enough to have our own raft with our private guide who pointed out the wildlife and was receptive to what we were interested in. I highly recommend making this part of your vacation."..."
