We enjoyed the rapelling and rafting excursions. We rapelled in the cool, refreshing water of the canyon. Be warned that there are slippery rocks so hiking sandals with good traction are a must. Also, the hike back up was steep, so you must be moderately fit and healthy. The good thing was that there were stepping stones. The Balsa River rafting tour was exhilarating; there were plenty of class 2 & 3 rapids which made it exciting. Just when you thought you can let your guard down, the river starts boiling and rumbling again. We were able to clean off the river water in 4 outdoor showers (cold water only) and there were a few private changing rooms. At the end of our adventure, a generous plate of casada (black beans and rice) with veggies, yucca, two pieces of braised chicken and relish was served to us. We also got a chance to sample shots of moonshine and see how brown sugar was made from harvested sugar cane. We had a great time. Highly recommended.
