Overview

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).

Awesome experience. The staff is very professional and the river is amazing. Only recommendation is to accept credit cards without 8% charge. Especially since so many tourists come in.

Would like to enquire about 3 days of kayaking in the area with a guide. Will need to rent boating gear for 3 gringo boaters (all experienced class IV boaters) sometime around mid February 2016. Gracias.
