A group of 5 of us went in December 2012. It was organised well enough, we spent the night at Banana Republic hostel in La Ceiba and then at 8am the following morning we were picked up and taken out to the lodge which is in a beautiful setting right next to the river with views of the jungle. The rafting was great fun, the guides were great and the fruit they supplied was good quality. My only issue is that on their website it states a half day of rafting is 3-4 hours. In reality it took 2 hours (including getting to the river, safety briefing etc) so we found ourselves all finished by 12pm! Stayed the night anyway as it was a free night's accommodation and early the next morning we got the chicken bus back in (which go at 8am, 9am, 10am not sure after this time - although it was 40 minutes late). They offer you transport back to La Ceiba but not until 12:30pm. My other recommendation is bring some snacks from La Ceiba as they don't sell any food at the lodge (aside from lunch and dinner which was good) and there is alot of waiting around. Overall I would recommend this experience.
