Get Wet, River Rafting

Duration: Full Day

get wet, river rafting

For thrill seekers and water lovers alike, this is an incredible wet adventure that will leave you with a taste of the best of the Dominican’s extreme sports. If you want that adrenaline rush that sets your pulse racing try our fantastic water ride down the Cordillera Central at Yague del Norte River. Enjoy this amazing experience against a background of wild vegetation, dramatic scenery and the most impressive rapids located right at the heart of the Dominican Republic.

You’ll be descending down a category 3 river, rated from a scale of 1 to 6 with 6 being the most difficult and steep rapids you could come across in terms of level of intricacy. This experience however can be enjoyed by all (so long as they are older than 14) from complete beginners to the most experienced amateurs! Full guidance and equipment will be provided for this action packed day!

For many holidaymakers, river rafting is the most adventurous activity they will participate in during their Dominican Republic holiday here. Depending on how high the tide is, this could be a truly exhilarating experience that can last from 2 hours (usually the standard time) to as little as 20 minutes! On this adventure you’ll be gliding down the Dominican countryside, admiring the beauty at each side and passing by peculiar sights like women washing clothes in the river and children diving off rocks.  Steep hills rise sharply against panoramic views of the tropical forest with quaint footbridges (the remaining after hurricane George) that appear at intervals across the rapids.

The river you’ll be rafting across is one of the most technical ones in the Dominican Republic… so don’t expect to just sit on the boat and wait for nature to carry you downstream by the force of the current…you will require to use skills in forward and backwards paddling in order to navigate through the trickiest points in the river…But don’t worry too much because whilst this is an action packed ride it will also leave you with plenty of little breaks to marvel at the scenery and enjoy the beauties that surround you.

But that is not all! There’s also the unique opportunity of swimming the crocodile rapids, an incredible and unique experience that can be enjoyed just before lunch! Apart from all the excitement and thrills a day like this provides, the emphasis here is on having fun, screaming a lot and learning paddling river rafting techniques that will have you soon turned into a happy camper!
