* A traveler said: "I guess we got lucky and chose the best company to do the rafting on Pacuare river! We only booked at 8pm the day before and still everything went perfectly the next morning! We had a private tour with two guides which was awesome! The guides Michael and Eduardo were super cool and funny dudes which made the day even better! They prepared delicious burritos for lunch and were extremely professional with their skills on the river - impressive! The nature was stunning and we wished we had the time to do the 2 or 3 day trip! Absolutely would recommend booking with them since their company is smaller and more personal. Thank you Michael for the great company and Eduardo for taking great videos for us! See you next time!"
