It was okay, nothing spectacular about it. The tour driver took us for a canyon boat tour with beautiful views but there are so many tourists, it was quite tough to explore the nature by boat. We were then taken to Ciapa de Chorzo, a quite town nearby. The driver and the guide on a boat spoke only Spanish (which was expected from the tour description; however, it surely affected the experience. There wasn’t anything wrong with it, just not really memorable.

We met the van at the plaza grande and then they took us to a bus for the trip. The driver was very friendly, professional and drove safely. It was good to go with a tour because a boat was ready for us when we arrived. It’s a beautiful trip down the river. Highly Recommended.

A great trip! A guide that could translate to English would have made this trip even better as there was a few pieces of information shared throughout the boat trip but the sights were stunning and well worth it regardless. Trip also took closer to 8.5 hours.
