Excellent experience! And by way....I am scared of water :)

I know what are you thinking...why someone scared of water will do something like this. Answer: I don't know...I just did it. This was my experience: my husband and I were picked up at the hotel and it took us 2 hrs to get to the river. Once there, the guide (Tini) prepared the raft and once the raft was... More

The only bad part about this trip was the lack of water today (which is no fault of the rafting company, it's the hydroelectrict plant.) I had a great time. The guide Tini, did awesome. I would recomend them to a friend.

It's a must for outgoing adventurers: good rush, but always within "safety first" premise. We'll recommend it to anyone going to Boquete. Our thanks go out for Justin, his team and specially for Tini, the head rafter. I'd say it's not for kids under 10, nor for seniors.

We did today a half day rafting trip with Panama Rafters. It was a really nice experience and the whole family enjoyed it a lot. At the end of the trip we even passed a small artificial waterfall. We always felt very safe, there was never any "dangerous" situation. The entire crew was very helpful, professional and knowledgeable. Safety was... More

My experience with Panama Rafters in Boquete was the worst experience I have ever had with a tour company, or any company for that matter. There were no issues for the beginning of the whitewater rafting trip, but towards the end, the rafting guide put us in a very reckless, stupid, and life-threatening situation. He led us over a hydrological... More

We were a group of 6 adults and 9 kids (4-11 years old). We set up the trip a few days before and wired the money to their bank account. We met the bus in David, and then we rode for 90 minutes to the drop off points. The guides were al very nice and friendly. While gearing up, the... More

Did the Chiquiri Rafting today, it was GREAT fun! Would recommend Panama Rafters to everyone who likes action and adventure but wishes to have a good guide who cares about everybodys safety. (We had a very good guide who had the rafting boat everytime under his control. The river is a TOUGH one at some points (grade III) so this... More

My family and I went white water rafting with panama rafters and to say we enjoyed it is a understatement. However even though the trip was amazing that is not why I decided to write this review. The service at Panama Rafters saved my trip from going into the ground. At the end of the day as we were travelling... More

The river is fantastic and the guides are really first rate. They ensure that everyone has a great time. Their knowledge of the river, the area and the wildlife was truly amazing. It was an incredible trip.
