White water rafting takes you through crazy rapids, big drops and waterfalls and wild waves. With the help and guidance of experienced and highly trained instructors you will be nose dunking, surfing and pirouetting before you know it! Your adrenalin will never be the same again!


The scenery you will experience on route is utterly spectacular.

Panama is a special place and it’s wildlife is well protected within the 14 National Parks and large amount of wildlife reserves.


What about the rafting itself? Well you can sign up for a variety of different trips and there are different grades of rafting depending on the difficulty of the river. Choose a suitable grade or ‘class’ of river for your experience and then sign up for a day trip (actual time in the water 2.5-4hrs) For an extra amazing experience why not consider the overnight rafting trip where you will have the ultimate magical camping experience in the tropical forest; getting to know new and exciting people around a campfire?  Either way the experience of white water rafting in Boquete is likely to be one you will never forget.
