This was the perfect trip for senior...

This was the perfect trip for senior citizens and young families. The rapids were nothing more than class 2. The guide, Ezequi, was very skilled and a delight to be with. It was almost a float trip on a clear and quiet river to the sea. We used to do class 3 and 4 but felt that this was a better choice at our age as one of us had some limited abilities. I would highly recommend it.
