We were recommended to Jim and Boquette Outdoor Adventures by a guide we met on our yearly river trip in the western USA. Lucked out and got a great deal by doing the zip line and river in a package deal, over a two day,time period. Freddie our guide was very funny. The river was a fun Class II+ and I was happy they used small rafts. My only criticism is that the safety talk could have been a bit more thorough. We had two people who had never ranted before with us. The scary incident was when my friend, a big man went out. We discovered after he was back in the boat that his PFD was VERY loose. THe guides never checked anyone's jackets before we left the shore. I think this is one of,the basic things that guides do.

I did a day rafting trip with crew @ Boquete Outdoor Adventures and it was great experience. Staff was knowledgable and super friendly. Our guide "Papito" challenged us with many waves and laughters.

I highly recommend a tour with them during rainy season. The best experience of the year so far.

Did the Chirique Viejo river rafting trip with them. Boquete Outdoor Adventures did everyting right. Staff was knowedegable and friendly (and bi-lingual - Spanish/English). Cost was low. River was fantastic (not too rough but just enough rapids to make it fun). The owner Jim was in a kayak and took lots of photos that he posted online for us to download for free and not try to make us buy at an inflated price like some rafting/tour companies... My friends went zip lining with them the day before and said they had a great time but I didn't do that so can't really comment on it.
Oh, I did the coffee farm tour via them as well and it was very well worth the cost. If you are in Boquete be sure to do the coffee farm tour.

We had a fabulous time!! We took our three kids, 11,12,14 who all loved it. Our daughter had never been before and can't wait to do it again. When we asked what the best part of our vacation was, they all agreed it was rafting!

We took the whitewater rafting trip on the Rio Chiriqui and had an amazing time! By far this is one of the most exciting trips we have ever done as a family. The guides were amazing and led us down some incredible rapids. The rains the days before made the river nearly all white water and led to some very exciting times. Our kids (ages 13, 10, 9) had not had this type of experience before but the guides made them feel comfortable. Now they have a great experience and are ready to do a trip like this again! We stopped at for a suitable lunch that was much needed after all the work paddling the river. Towards the end of the trip we were given the option of riding a section of rapids out of the boat which most of us did. It was very exciting for the kids especially and the guides made sure it was safe for them. The trip was definitely the highlight of our Panama trip and we can't wait to come back to try it again!
