I've been rafting many times in different parts of the world, and this experience did not disappoint. Raft Amazonia's Eduardo booked me on the trip and I ended up going with Rios Ecuador, I think because they... More

We had a day of rafting on the Jatunyacu river and what a fun day it was! The river was high that day and the rapids were at least class III if not bordering on class IV. After a safety debrief, we were off - and within seconds we were paddling like mad through the first section of the river.... More

This river has nice scenery which you should not forget to enjoy between all the action. The whitewater is mostly water based and there are only a couple rocks, making it a very safe location for all ages.

It has an amazing view, full of nature. Simply great for rafting, kayaking, swimming or simply viewing. Nice to go for friends, couples or families. Sunny or cloudy still awesome!

We rafted with a group of 4 rafts via Rios Ecuador and had a great time. Was not thrilled about the commercial gold operation that was tearing up a section of the river bank. Some nice holes and waves, thrilling but in a safe way.

Big waves, fast current, beautiful views! This is a class 3 river but it doesn't disappoint! Don't take it for granted - it is remote and walking out would be arduous - use a guide if you have any doubts about your ability.
