Great trip with Rios Ecuador

Our family of 2 boys and 2 parents LOVED it. We rode the rapids and felt safe at every point. The guides were tons of fun.

No visit to Tena should be without a raft trip, and the Jatunyaku was a super choice. The water is clean and cold, and the rapids are a blast, lots of adrenaline with not too much risk on the class 3, 30 km river. The guides were professional and fun, and served up a great lunch (almuerzo) alongside the river

We had a day of rafting on the Jatunyacu river and what a fun day it was! The river was high that day and the rapids were at least class III if not bordering on class IV. After a safety debrief, we were off - and within seconds we were paddling like mad through the first section of the river.... More

This river has nice scenery which you should not forget to enjoy between all the action. The whitewater is mostly water based and there are only a couple rocks, making it a very safe location for all ages.
