Rafting Banos, Rafting Ecuador

Rafting Baños Ecuador
In Ecuador, the massive Andean mountain range gives birth to scores of rivers. In fact, Ecuador has one of the world’s highest concentrations of rivers per square mile. These rivers wind their way through spectacular gorges, canyons, valleys and jungle, and leave behind miles of breathtaking world class whitewater that feed into the mighty Amazon River.
Ecuador offers excellent, year-round whitewater rafting. In addition to their nearly continuous flows, Ecuadorian rivers, especially those in the east, have warm, tropical waters and excellent accessibility. There are a variety of rivers to choose from, with varying grades of difficulty. Ecuador is an unrivaled whitewater destination that you should not miss.
Why the best Rafting is in the Jungle:
The jungle rivers of the Amazon side of the Andes are generally bigger and have more consistent flows than their west-Andean counterparts. They are also by far the most clean and scenic rivers in all of Ecuador. Besides their exceptional whitewater, the rivers of eastern Ecuador also provide an opportunity to experience the incredible Amazon jungle and the rhythm of life of its native inhabitants.

We will meet at our agency at 9 am where you will be provided with the necessary equipment for your rafting tour. Once everyone is equipped, we will start our tour taking a private van to San Francisco Town. On the way, you can see different waterfalls (Agoyan, Manto de la Novia, El Pailon del Diablo) which are along the route of the cascades. When we arrive at the river, you will be given a safety talk so that you know what to do on the raft, e.g. paddle commands and other tips to keep the group safe on the river. We will practice the commands on land first before we get on the river. Then it is time for your rafting experience through a beautiful landscape. After a great hour of rafting the class III+/IV rapids we will finish the trip in Topo where our driver will be waiting for us. To round off the trip we will have a well deserved lunch before we return back to Baños.
