White Water Rafting • Boquete, Panama

With more than 35 world-class whitewater runs in Panama’s Chiriqui province alone, there is no paddling destination more extraordinary than Panama! The combination of the region’s topography, abundant watersheds and incredible biological diversity make Panama an extraordinary whitewater rafting destination. We do most of our Panama whitewater rafting in the watersheds of the Chiriqui province, where over 150 inches of rain fall annually.


If you or someone in your group is new to the sport of whitewater rafting and prefer an easier trip with a relaxed pace, we can take you down some amazingly beautiful stretches of Class II/III whitewater on the Rio Majagua.

If you are looking for a heart-pounding glimpse of what makes Panama’s whitewater famous among whitewater enthusiasts around the globe, then the Palon section of the Rio Chiriqui Viejo is a must-do for you!


Class I: Moving water with small waves (ideal for beginners)

Class II: Rapids with waves up to three feet high. Clean, unobstructed channels with some maneuvering required. Guide must be able to maintain course.

Class III: Irregular waves, scouting necessary, complex maneuvering, obstacles concealed. Difficult to control and maneuver.

Class IV: Long, difficult rapids with tight passages. Boat tipping and swamping are real possibilities. If a customer falls in the water a possibility of injury is ever present.

Class V: Quick rescue procedings must be in place. Precise and professional knowledge of the river course is a must.
