I found the Rio Claro VIP tour to be excellent. For the reserve itself my party opted for the rafting. I found the water level to be ideal that day with some small rapids and unique scenery as the river flows under large rock outcroppings. I would like to do the caving at some point in the future as it's an actual caving adenture, not the typical guided walk on a paved path. When I was there the cavers actually exited where a small waterfall was produced in the mountainside that emptied into the river.

In regards to the tour providers themselves - Ecotours Colombia Medellin - I would recommend them without reservation for this tour. Our guide was Prakash who spoke clean, fluent English and was deeply informed on many related things along the way.

Prakash was a safe driver which in Colombia cannot be undervalued. While the roads to Rio Claro are modern there are occasionally road hazards from animals, people, & fallen boulders in addition to some aggressive drivers. With cheaper tour groups you might end up with a driver who's main goal is to get there as fast as possible and back with little regard for safety. Prakash was attentive to safety for the entire journey there.

Additionally Ecotours provided a large, new Ford 150 that provided ample space inside and an extra layer of safety along the way.

Our host, Prakesh was very professional, knowledgeable, welcoming and with attention to detail. He was warm and made our visit to Rio Claro just perfect. I had terrible travel sickness on the journey back to Medellin and was sick in the car. He was very kind and understanding while putting the windows down and pretending not to notice the smell. Thank you! Would recommend to anyone travelling to Medellin.

Well organised VIP tour in a high class 4WD from Medellin, included breakfast and lunch. The guide was pleasant, stopping along the way for scenic pictures of the sunrise over the Andes ranges, after breakfast, we went rafting in pristine natural environment, followed by a short eco-walk and caving tour after lunch. A full day of highly organised fun. Make sure you carry sunscreen and a torch and closed shoes if caving. This non-rushed VIP tour highly recommended (as compared to a tedious bus journey in larger groups).
