Venezuela's Whitewater Rafting in Barinas - La Acequia.
(2 DAYS - 2 RIVERS PROGRAMME )
Sierra Nevada/ Barinas
(from June to November)
We leave Mérida in the early morning, and drive over the breathtaking Páramo road down to Barinas. Mucuchies, San Rafael, Mucubaji are just some of the highlights where we will stop to take some pictures. Lunch is at our new "Arassari Trek Adventure camp" on the shore of the Acequias river. After you have received the safety instructions and training we will raft down a tropical grade 2+to 3 river with beautiful rainforest on both sides of the river. The run is around 1 hour depending on the water level. We will find some rocks to jump off and try floating down in the current, with just your lifesaver on! With a little bit of luck we might see some wild animals (iguanas, river otters) and exotic birds such as toucans, parrots or macaws. Return to the Arassari Trek adventure camp to relax. Overnight in beds in our comfortable camp cabins with private toilets and showers.
After a nice and filling Venezuelan breakfast we will drive around 30 minutes to the entrance point of the Siniguis river with it's amazing emerald colour. This river offers some off the best white water Rafting in Venezuela. From Caño Grande down to the road we will have one rapid after the other...the washing machine, the mixer, the blender... a whole exciting household in the outdoors. Grade 4 plus to even more excting Grade 5 depending on the water level of the day. This is great Splash for your cash, but remember to hold on when told to (as swimmers pay extra, haha !). Around 3 to 4 hours of rough water sport pleasure is waiting for you. So much fun and so much Adrenaline !
A spectacular lunch will await us at the end of our raft, relax and recover at the new Arassari Trek adventure camp before we return to Barinas (connections by plane and bus to Valencia, Caracas and Ciudad Bolivar) and then on to Merida.
