Rafting Adventure description:

It doesn’t get better than the whitewater rafting in Panama! With several world-class whitewater runs in Panama’s Chiriqui province alone, there is no Central America paddling destination more extraordinary than Panama! The combination of the region’s topography, abundant watersheds and incredible biological diversity make Panama an extraordinary whitewater river rafting destination.

The whitewater rafting routes that our experienced guides will select for your trip and it will depend on water levels from dam release for the trip day more over it also depends on your prior rafting experience, skill, and desire. Our jungle run provides amazing scenery, one of the best riverside lunches in Panama, as well as some celebratory beer and sodas at the end.

For rafters of all experience, we’d love to get your group out on the rivers of Panama with several classic class II and class III runs that offer only super-fun whitewater rafting! Based on rainfall, water levels, and season, we select from the Rio Chiriqui Viejo, Rio Fonseca, Rio Gariche, Rio Chiriqui, as well as many others.  

If you are young or young-at-heart, and are looking for an adrenaline-filled glimpse of what makes Panama’s whitewater famous around the globe, then a Team A1 whitewater rafting trip is a must-do for you.

Whitewater Rafting Trips include:

Thorough and complete first aid kits are provided on each trip as well as other relevant river safety gear.  Our rafts require full interaction with all passengers paddling at the guide’s order of “forward,” “stop,” “back,” and other commands.  Be ready, paddling is a great workout and provides an incredible feeling of accomplishment and teamwork!

 

River Guides

All of our river guides are local Panamanians, and have been with us for many years. They know the rivers of the Chiriqui Province better than anyone else and are trained as Wilderness First Responders. Their outgoing personalities and love of what they do provide one heck of a great river ride!  We are extremely proud of the professionalism and courtesy of our guides and we scout guides based on river expertise and personality. We believe in providing an exciting journey that is also safe and family-friendly. In addition, our guides are proud and eager to teach and point out the various birds and animals you will likely encounter on the river, including monkeys, birds, and iguanas.

 

Safety Orientation

Our guides will provide you with detailed instructions before we enter the water, especially important for first-timers. This insures that everyone feels safe and knows what they are doing during the excursion. Everyone is equipped with a life jacket, paddle, helmet, and water shoes. Please do not bring anything that can get damaged if wet.

On every trip, we have at least 2 guides out on the river, to insure the safest conditions. Our trips are fun and family-friendly, and we frequently take adventurous 5-year-olds up to active 85-year-olds!

 

Riverside Lunch

A hefty smorgasbord lunch is provided on all river trips. The lunch includes: seasonal vegetables (tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, lettuce), seasonal fruit (oranges, apples, pineapple), chips, cookies, sliced meat, whole grain bread, and condiments. Drinks include fruit juices, iced tea, and fresh water. For those limited to certain diets due to religious beliefs or vegetarian preferences, we include everything “on the side” so you can pick and choose to your own preference. We also celebrate an excellent paddling day with beers and sodas at the end of the trip. Please…No coolers allowed.

 

Transportation

Transportation to and from the river is provided from our A1 Office in Plaza Los Establos, in Boquete. Driving time is based on the day’s selected river.  Our driver stays with the vehicle all day, so you can securely store your bags (towels, dry clothes, passports, etc.) in the vehicle.
