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).

We had excellent guides and safety crew on a fast paced adrenaline filled ride. I was impressed with the extensive safety briefing and skills practice before getting underway. The guides were well prepared, capable, fun, energetic ambassadors to a wild, fast, and extreme adventure.

The team was really nice and helpful. Furthermore we got to experience a great river with difficult rapids. Way beyond the usual beginners level. So much fun. Afterwards we were handed freshly sliced fruits, chicken and some beer. I can totally recommend it!

Great days rafting Class IV and V on river Suarez. Instructors were brilliant and the whole day was really well organised. Pickup from San Gil was easy. 4th time rafting having previously been in Honduras and Costa Rica and this was the best by a margin. Would highly recommend.

Of what i remeber of the day is smiling, giggling like a schoolgirl, the occasional bruise and being thoroughly soaked. I would do it an injustice to try come up with adjectives that adequately describe what the day entails, bar being 100% fun. You get collected at 10am from your hostel, so have some breakfast first. You'll get dropped to... More

Phenomenal trip. 2 hours spent on the river with outgoing and enthusiastic raft guide. Money well spent to experience the intense rapids of the suarez river. To end the day, we had a fantastic spread of fruit and chicken. The staff was very thorough in their safety briefing as well!! Great time. Highly recommend.
