Conquer the rapids of the Tuma River and the Río Grande de Matagalpa during this 3- to 5-hour rafting from from Matagalpa. Climb aboard a raft with your group and expert adventure guide, then paddle your way down 9 miles (15 km) of Class II, III and IV rapids. During the lulls between white water paddling, sit back and watch the verdant plant life and local fauna on the riverbanks. No rafting experience is necessary, but it is recommended that participants be in good physical condition. Lunch, snacks and round-trip transportation from centrally located Matagalpa hotels are included.
