Had my first rafting experience with AquaXtreme on the Jatun Yacu river, and it was absolutely amazing! Our guides were skilled and professional, but they were also a lot of fun.
We experienced many class III and III+ rapids over the course of our journey, and the river conditions couldn't have been better. The guides got great action pictures, and even prepared a nice lunch for us afterward.
Absolutely fantastic experience!

The best rafting tour we ever made. We were traveling with 3 people, and the tour was the 3 of us only in a little boat. We are experienced paddlers and were rafting in New Zealand, Colombia, Austria etc. this was top notch. The guide Amaru was professional and experienced with the river. We had 4 hours of pure rafting. The tour in total took us 6-7 hours. Lunch prepared by the 2 guides (additional safety kayak) was very good. The landscape was fantastic and super remote, we met 5 other people the whole day. The trip as worth every cent.
I was nervous about rafting, but it ended up being the best experience! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the birds, plants, and culture and between rapids was happy to answer our questions and point out things along the river. He definitely knew what he was doing and kept us safe, but still did fun things like let us ride on the front of the raft in smaller rapids. Lunch on a rocky beach half way thru was delicious and the time to swim and sun bathe while it was being prepared was much appreciated after so much paddling.
Four from our family took a rafting trip on December 5th with Alex and Byron of Aquaxtreme Tours. Alex expertly guided the raft, while Byron was the safety guide and also took photos with our camera from his kayak. Everyone had a great time maneuvering through class 3 and 4 rapids during the 4 hour trip down river.
Alex and Byron also prepared and served a very nice lunch at the end of our trip. We all felt that it was one of the highlights of our trip to Ecuador!
