My family and I are visiting in April 2014. We really want to experience rafting, and the OARS is the only company that I can find who are willing to take my young children (aged 3 and 8). They offer rafting trips on the San Juan - 3, 4 or 6 days.
I was hoping to find someone who has done a similar trip with similar aged children. Did you find that the trip was worth the cost? The 3 day option is the one we're currently looking at.
I also have a few general rafting questions - I assume that in April, the weather (and water) will be quite cold… is it cold enough to need wet or dry suits? If so, is there a place we can hire them locally (especially for the kids)? My kids are used to camping and roughing it, however they aren't particularly used to cold weather, given that we usually go camping and hiking here in Australia's summer.
