River Guides

Our river guides have been wilderness 1st responder certified, and they know the Panama rivers like the back of their hands. When they’re not guiding rafting trips, they also specialize in whitewater kayaking, island trips, sea kayaking, and sport fishing trips.




River Guide

Papito has been kayaking and guiding the rivers of Panama for over 15 years, when he was trained up on guiding. His natural talent in whitewater is remarkable and he provides one of the best and safest whitewater rides on the Chiriqui Viejo River.
