On the Wednesday morning, Diego picked us up from the Cloud Forest and we headed out on a 2 hour drive to the Rio Toachi where we braved Class III and IV rapids. It was exhilarating. We learned how to manuever a raft and rescue procedures if needed. We stopped twice along the way...once to enjoy a waterfall and the other to jump off the hillside. About halfway through our rafting we stopped for a nutritious lunch and to relax and get to know our guide. It was quite nice having a member of the national rafting team as your guide.
