Run by the Dent family from England, River People is a top-notch outfitter that consistently gets rave reviews. River People has been pioneering rafting on previously untried rivers throughout the region, including the remote Río Hollín, where groups of experienced rafters camp overnight in pristine rainforest. One popular tour is the challenging two-day expedition to the nearby Río Quijos, site of the 2005 World Rafting Championships.
Guides have a minimum of eight years’ experience and speak English. Jungle camping, kayaking instruction and tailor-made trips are possible. Rates for Class III river rafting with four hours guaranteed river time start at $65 per person.
