rafting Rio Cangrejal

I will be in La Ceiba for two nights at the end of April and am interested in rafting the best rapids available on the river. I believe that means we should go further upriver.

Is that a good time to raft?

Any suggestions for tour operators or particular trips?

Are you staying in La Ceiba? If you can get yourself over to Banana Republic Guesthouse and Gallery (a backpackers hostal in La Ceiba) they can take you up to The Jungle River Lodge (also own by them) in this neat old millary truck (bumpy ride). They have White Water Rafting, great hikes and Zip Lines. My husband and I and our 7 year old went and had a great time. The lodge is right on the river.

Check out their website www.jungleriverlodge.com , I have also done a review here on Trip Advisor about Jungle River Lodge.

Not sure about the rapids this time a year but I'm sure you can email them.

Have a great time!

Barefoot -

The folks at Omega Hungle Lodge are also great excursion operators. Either Omega or Jungle River can cover you on both the rafting and the Cuero and Salado trip if you want.

You will find Omega on line at http://www.omegatours.hn/start.htm

April weather is generally dry. The Cangrejal is sitll great for rafting its just the trips are a bit shorter than during the winter rainy season.

Enjoy Honduras!

Think you'll find Omega Tours much cleaner , way better food, and English speaking guides.

They have rooms of all types and a range of prices ,free with tour or you can up grade.

River was great!

Have Fun!
