Overview
San Cipriano is a natural reserve with one of the purest and cleanest crystalline rivers in the world according to the United Nations. It boasts wonderful trails, cascading waterfalls in a tropical rainforest, making it a magical touristic destination. San Cipriano´s reserve nestles a picturesque small town in the Colombian Pacific, surrounded by rivers that are ideal for activities such as swimming, snorkeling, tubing and cliff jumping. The adventure starts when you take the brujita (wooden palate powered by a motorcycle placed on train tracks) through the rainforest with the river on one side and deep vegetation on the other. Pass through tunnels and cross bridges to unveil the natural wonders that you will encounter upon arriving to the reserve.The Natural Reserve of San Cipriano offers relief and pleasure for the mind, body and soul. Hop on the tube, sit back, relax, and glide down the river as it unveils the secrets of its nature on this diverse ecosystem.

In general the place, the food and the river are cool. The big problem was river swimming activity with air tube rings. The part of the river chosen for this had several rapids with a lot of stones so it was dangerous. This was not explained clearly and for my surprise old

Thank your for the comment, we use all of the reviews to improve our service and the way we all develop out tour. We're sorry about your experience, there's an important thing when doing a tour with childrens and is: They are your own responsability and unfortunately we can't take care of one single person as we have a group and everyone needs attention. Hopefully your next experience will be better than this one.

Hi Cynthia, Thank you for your comment, it's very important for us to have feedback on the tours. We are very sorry that you had this experience and that you feel this way about the company, however, there are a few things we would like to clarify. First of all, the tour was detailed and explained to you several times, by us here at the agency and also by the guide once you were in San Cipriano. You were told that the river changes, that some parts are quite deep and you glide slowly on the tube and that there are also parts with rapids, where it's more shallow and you need to lift your bottom on the tube so you're not hurt by the rocks in the river. This is not a dangerous experience, just a few days before your tour, another family took their own daughter, who was the same age as yours, and they had the best time ever. I think our mistake was to maybe make clear to you that if you were going to do the tubing activity you would need to be able to maneuver the tube, which you were also given instructions for by the guide before the activity. But we understand that there was a misunderstanding and that you thought that it was only a lazy river activity, we apologize for this and from here on we will be extra careful in the explanation of the tour so that something like this never happens again. Another very important thing we would like to mention is that you were all wearing life-jackets, which were mandatory to have during the tubing. This is of course for your safety which is of course our concern, which is why we take all the necessary precautions so that everything is carried out smoothly, but you must understand that this is a nature and adventure tour and the guide cannot control everything that happens to you during the tubing. We do everything so that you have a good day trip, that you have a good experience in a safe and fun way, but you must understand that if you fall from the tube it's not the guide's fault, it was her responsibility to help you, to make sure you were ok, which she immediately did. From her report we learned that when she went to help you back on the tube and make sure everything was ok, she suggested that your husband take the child since you were having trouble maneuvering the tube and he said no. To bring a child on the tubing activity we were explicitly clear about the fact that she was too young to go on her own and that one of her parents would have to carry her. Afterwards, the guide offered to stay close to you and help you along the rest of the way down, but explained to you that in that case you should go in the front of the group with her, because it's the guide's job to make sure no one goes beyond the point where we need to get out of the river and so needs to be in the front. In the end you decided to stay behind with the local guide and said several times that you were ok. So you put her in an incredibly difficult position when suddenly before the end of the tubing you and your family went out of the river and left all of the tubes behind. Furthermore, you say that we went in the river even though it was too dangerous. We would never do anything of the sort. It was raining that day and the guide told you that if the river was rising too much we would not do the tubing activity. The locals are the ones who know the river best, which is why we rely on their expertise to decide if we can do the activity or not. The guide consulted with the locals and particularly with the local guide who said it was totally ok to do the activity. And proof of that are the 5 other tourists on the tour who had a great time and enjoyed the experience. Once again we are really sorry that you had such a bad experience and you have made us realize that our explanation of the tour should be much more detailed so there are no misunderstandings in the future. We hope the rest of your stay in Cali was good. Have a great day ! Valley Adventours team
