Rapids classification I and IV. Difficulty: II
The Western Plains
This rafting trip includes a thrilling descent through more than 20 rapids and sets out from one of the most beautiful locations on the River Siniguis, known as Dos Bocas. This is where the Siniguis and Acequia rivers converge. Here we prepare for the descent through the impressive Batidora rapid, then immediately continue through two more rapids, the Poceta and the Quiebra-costilla. These three rapids alone would be enough to complete this exciting trip, but it doesn’t finish there: you still have the Frances, Chupadora, Splash, Speedy Gonzalez, Helicoptero, Submarino, Terminator and Surf en USA to go!
This journey includes rapids with a level of difficulty ranging from Class I to Class IV. To be able to take part in this activity clients must be prepared to get wet and to have a good time, since there is no need for physical preparation. Although teamwork helps to steer the boat there will always be an experienced guide accompanying you who will ensure that you take the best route in order to descend the river safely but also meet the expectations of the participants. In the same way he will give his professional support for all aspects of passenger safety and will keep you informed about rescue procedures should the boat flip over. The skill in rafting makes an excellent recreational opportunity as it combines sport with the observation and enjoyment of nature.
This trip is designed for clients of at least 14 years of age with whom we will row through large waves and powerful water on the River Acequia. As we venture down river, we will find resting places where we can observe many birds in their natural habitat. We will be on the river for around two and a half to three hours. The trip will go by the same safety regulations and use the same equipment as for our trips through Class V+ rapids.
Participants under 18 years of age must have authorisation from a parent or guardian.
We use inflatable boats capable of carrying 8 people, designed and strengthened to meet the particular demands of the river, inflated in sections, and very stable and fitted with safety ropes and handles. In addition, we supply all the necessary equipment: oars, helmets and lifejackets. The use of the last two pieces of equipment is compulsory.
From May to November, subject to the level of the water – reservations must be made in advance.
