Beautiful scenery and an amazing trip down the rapids. Be warned: this is a fast moving trip and, even though I tried not to, I did get thrown from the raft. Scared me to death! Keep your feet up so you don't get a foot...More

Anyone considering the Pacuare River, Level 3-4, you need to lookup Exploradores. This company puts safety ahead of profits. Please look up my TripAdvisor review on Exploradores.
