We are white-water specialists. Our guides have international certificates like: INTERNATIONAL RAFTING FEDERATION (IRF), RESCUE 3 INTERNATIONAL and Red Cross first aid. We are professional guides with professional accreditation from the Colombian ministry of tourism.

Our experience of over 20 years shows that we are the most qualified company to offer White-water rafting on class 5 rivers like the Rio Suarez. The safety and comfort of our customers is the most important thing to us, this is why our company uses certified equipment from internationally recognised brands. We also use boats with frame and oars to offer the best safety on our descents of rapids.

We also have instructors like CESAR DIAZ, who represents international bodies to offer courses and renewal of internationally certified licences for SWIFTWATER RESCUE (rescue 3 International), training and certification of rafting guides (INTERNATIONAL RAFTING FEDERATION), and white-water kayaking courses.

We also offer 1-3 day tours on the Rio Chicamocha, family trips on the Rio Fonce and hydrospeed (river boarding).

I had to come back to San Gil a second time because at my last visit the Rio Suarez was closed for Rafting every day due to too high water. Luckily this time it was possible, though again the conditions were right on the edge of what is allowed. But to say, it was the best decision to come back.... More

Took a raft ride this week on the Rio Suarez with this company, it was great! You will likely never find a better rafting trip for the price with a very professional company. Things start out a bit slow, but we finally got to the river, had a lengthy safety and instructional lesson about the different situations we might encounter,... More

Did the white water rafting on the River Suarez, we didn't have any previous experience but the guides were very good at explaining what we needed to do. We had Nestor as our boat guide who was great fun but also very professional and safe. The rapids were grade 2-5 so some thrilling moments! Lasted a good hour and a... More

My boyfriend and I did the rafting trip to Rio Suarez today - we paid 130,000 pesos per person for a couple of hours on class 3 to class 5 rapids. I was incredibly nervous going into it; neither of us have ever been rafting before and throwing beginners straight in to class 5 rapids is seems pretty intense! We... More

We were looking to do some outdoor adventure during our time in San Gil and chose to go whitewater rafting. We were concerned as the river was down, but the company selects which sections of the river to raft depending upon water levels. So no class 5's today, but several 3's and 4's, not much flat water at all. The... More
