Overview

We are white-water specialists. Our guides have international certificates like: INTERNATIONAL RAFTING FEDERATION (IRF), RESCUE 3 INTERNATIONAL and Red Cross first aid. We are professional guides with professional accreditation from the Colombian ministry of tourism. Our experience of over 20 years shows that we are the most qualified company to offer White-water rafting on class 5 rivers like the Rio Suarez. The safety and comfort of our customers is the most important thing to us, this is why our company uses certified equipment from internationally recognised brands. We also use boats with frame and oars to offer the best safety on our descents of rapids. We also have instructors like CESAR DIAZ, who represents international bodies to offer courses and renewal of internationally certified licences for SWIFTWATER RESCUE (rescue 3 International), training and certification of rafting guides (INTERNATIONAL RAFTING FEDERATION), and white-water kayaking courses. We also offer 1-3 day tours on the Rio Chicamocha, family trips on the Rio Fonce and hydrospeed (river boarding).

Hi everybody. There are basically two different rafting activities that can be done when in San Gil. I decided to go to the most difficult AND expensive one at Rio Suarez: it is ALMOST a waste of money. Total time is around 1h and 1/2,...More

Rain canceled the big rafting trip but the smaller, class 3, river was open. I was bummed about the change but the guys make the trip a lot of fun. I had a blast and it was a good value for the money.
