This is an absolute must do when you come to Drake! Both Erick and Alvaro are two of the coolest dudes you can meet and the combination of good vibes and good surroundings when you are on the hike create and experience like no other:)

This is a very interesting tour. Nice informative trek followed by a swim in a natural pool and great fun floating down the river. Our guides Carlos and Alvaro were super. I would do it again.
