White Water Tubing at Rio Bueno

Enjoy this  exciting tubing adventure on the historic Rio Bueno River, named the "Good River" by Christopher Columbus and the Spanish after they discovered it in 1494. Your tour begins as you are greeted by one of your river guides upon arrival. Your tour guide directs you to the registration office for check in and mandatory signing of a waiver form. After signing the waiver form, you will be given a helmet and led outside to be fitted with your life jacket and propulsion gloves.  You receive some final safety instructions from your tour guide and then follow him across the IRIE Bridge and into the rainforest. Your 10 minute walk along the jungle path leads you to the launching point of your river adventure.


Now it's time to jump into the cool water and begin your exciting journey downstream! You tube over various areas of splashing rapids as you paddle your way through the many twists and turns of the Rio Bueno. Halfway through your tour, you will stop for some chill time under the bamboo tree, where you can swim and try out the rope swing. After some time at the swimming area, you jump back into your tube and make your way through some more fun filled rapids. (The stop will depend on the condition of the river, if the river is too high there will be no stop).


As you pass under the old stone bridge, the river currents carry you on a relaxing ride towards the Caribbean Sea. Once you reach the river delta, paddle over some small waves that will carry you to the sandy shores of Bengal Bay. You walk along the shore for about 5 minutes before arriving at Bengal Beach for some time to relax, swim in the sea, view some amazing photographs of your tour which are available for purchase.
