If you’re looking for something more controlled, just 45 minutes from downtown Boquete is the Majagua River. Its class 2 and 3 rapids are a good option for beginners and groups with children.


Navigate through its currents, and also stop for a swim in one of its calm and natural pools of clear water.

If you’re traveling with children over 6 years old, also consider an experience in the Gariche River, which has rapids of the same level. You’ll easily navigate its currents, among waterfalls and surrounded by wildlife such as monkeys, iguanas, birds, and dense tropical vegetation. Keep your eyes wide open during this tour! 

Another unrivaled experience suitable for beginners, it’s to practice rafting on the Fonseca River. It’s located almost 2 hours from downtown Boquete, in the area of Soloy, within the territories that belong to the indigenous community of Ngäbe-Buglé. At the beginning, the river is slow-moving, but as it runs it feeds on waterfalls and streams until it reaches level 3. By choosing this route you’ll make sure to experience a wonderful cultural encounter.
