Fun family adventure

Rolo was a great tour guide - very experienced and made the adventure safe and so much fun! We are a family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 teens - and found it to be challenging but not too much. The first part of the rapids were challenging and then the last was more scenery. We stopped for lunch had a great buffet with many local foods like rice and beans and plantains. We also went over to a stop with a small waterfall and the kids were able to swim. All in all a great adventure! Highly recommend
