We took a trip down the Mamoni River with guides Kyle and Wilbur. From the very beginning both guides were extremely professional and showed great interest in their guests. Although we had to wake up early for the trip, this company picks you up at your hotel to keep things running as smoothly and easily as possible for you.
On the ride out to the put-in, Kyle kept us entertained and shared a lot of info about Panama City and its history. Once on the river, I was in Wilbur's boat. Although I'm still working on my Spanish and he's still learning English, we were able to communicate and help each other practice our languages!
Some of the rapids were pretty wild, but Wilbur made me feel safe and I was very confident in his knowledge of the river. We stopped and enjoyed a great lunch the guides put together, a quick swim, and found some monkeys to entertain us. I have been on a handful of other rafting trips in the US, but this trip has now made it to the top of my favorite's list! Definitely something you should experience while traveling in Panama!
