Duration: 2 hours
Difficulty: medium, not recommended for very young children.
William is a very nice guy, speaking some English, and he normally goes with you on this trip. If he's not available and you absolutely want to go anyway, you can... at your own risk!!!
Not that it is really dangerous? NO!!!... the majority of the ride is on quiet water, (except in the rainy season of course, when it maybe not recommended going at all, ask us) with a few whirling rapids. Of course, you can get some bumps but normally, never severe. Otherwise, it is a very relaxing and nice way to discover the Santa Maria River. If you wish to make your time, you can stop and rest at the numerous little rock beaches you'll meet on the way.
From the hostel, go down left to the supermarket (La Cooperativa), then left again towards the bus terminal. Then right, then left at the next intersection. you'll probably see a sign "River Tubing" Go down to the house and ask for William.
