I think you can rent a tube every two meters in Palomino, so this is a very easy activity to do. You have to ride a moto, with your tube, and walk approximately 20 minutes before you reach the starting point. From there on it...More

If you just want to have a relaxing day, go for it. There’s no adventure or anything like that. And the guys who work there are so nice

A really nice, low key activity to do with family or friends. The water starts off cool and warms up. Most places are quite shallow. Beautiful scenery. We were there during the busy Semana Santa week, but there were not many people on the river....More

The view while tubing is great but after a while it gets a bit boring. Still I would recommend doing a tour and enjoying the peace and quit and beautiful view.

I don’t think they have inflatable boats. As the other tourist said, the bike ride to get to the place where it all starts and the walk are both an adventure, specially with children... so ask first in several tubing places... More
