Full description
Prepare yourself for the adventure of a lifetime with a full day out on the Rio Grande. This river, located in the Coclé province, runs through tropical dry forest and has rapids that vary from Class II-III to Class III+. On this excursion, ride out from Panama City to the river and experience it with a white water river rafting trip.

The area of Coclé has become Panama's mecca of beach tourism, due mostly in part to Playa Blanca, a gorgeous white sand beach located along the Pacific Ocean. Playa Blanca has attracted famous beach hotels such as Decameron and Barcelo, but not far away is the river with its exciting rapids.

Also in the surrounding area is El Valle, a mountain village inside an extinct volcano crater. Meanwhile, most of the basin surrounding the Rio Grande is devoted to cattle and farming. learn this and more as you set out on a full day of history, touring, and thrills.
