We went during a period of dryness and the river wasn't flowing as well. This requires a lot more walking and less floating. Otherwise the trip down the river is fun for a family trip and some fresh air!

I would never recommend it to a friend. The water was still, you have to use your arms to get some speed. It's boring, annoying and depressing. The activity is overpriced. You are going to waste your money and your time.

I would pass on this. It's run by some people who work in a hostel and they drive you up a road and have you hike down to a very slow moving river with your tube. The say that there are jumps for people to...More
