The full day adventure will keep you amazed between the jungle trek, the swimming, the class IV rapids, and being engulfed in bright green Amazonian vegetation.The plants, flowers, insects, and animals seen and talked about on the jungle trek is an educational experience that you can’t see or get anywhere else. Jumping and swimming in the refreshing waters of el Gran Cañon while being surrounded by untouched jungle makes you feel like you are in a movie because the beauty feels unreal.Both rivers provide their own type of excitement. The Jondachi river is one of the most beautiful rivers in the world because of its clear water, surrounding canyons, and smooth granite rocks. The Hollín river has even more character with grander rapids, bigger water, and more adrenaline while also providing recovery pools for swimming and relaxing. Not to mention, all rivers that feed into these two rivers come in the form of waterfalls, so there is no shortage of beautiful waterfalls of all shapes and sizes to be seen while rafting.The lunch had is no exception to the fun because we stop in the middle of the river/jungle to eat, which is sure to be a memorable experience. On top of the enthusiastic, professional, and knowledgeable guides, the friends that you make on the trip adds to the overall enjoyment of the rafting experience.
