We will meet at our agency at 9 am where you will be provided with the necessary equipment for your rafting tour. Once everyone is equipped, we will start our tour taking a private van to San Francisco Town. On the way, you can see different waterfalls (Agoyan, Manto de la Novia, El Pailon del Diablo) which are along the route of the cascades. When we arrive at the river, you will be given a safety talk so that you know what to do on the raft, e.g. paddle commands and other tips to keep the group safe on the river.
We will practice the commands on land first before we get on the river. Then it is time for your rafting experience through a beautiful landscape. After a great hour of rafting the class III+/IV rapids we will finish the trip in Topo where our driver will be waiting for us. To round off the trip we will have a well deserved lunch before we return back to Baños.
