The view was beautiful and very relaxing. The history is interesting and the tour guides stop to show you several fruits and plants along the river. My only complaint was the number of pushy people trying to sell their crafts.

We had such a great time. You sit on these bamboo rafts while a man guides you down the river. Our guide told us about the different trees, coconuts, the history of the river, etc. It was 3-1/2 miles down the river (took about 1...More

It was so peaceful, relaxing & just beautiful. Our guide just let us kick back for about a hour & a half & guided down the river. It was serene & beautiful. I would definitely do it again.

Went up this wonderful stretch of river on a bamboo raft. So relaxing with a great guy punting us along. Incredibly scenic and the water is crystal clear.

Check on prices. it's about 90 mins..way too long. The scenery never changed - just rafting down on river - the river could be anywhere. Zero activity going on - saw one bird. River was murky. Our guide was bad - thought he was a...More

Does the river rafting allow a 1 year old child if there is an adult attending as well?

Hi, Silvia. What would you like to know about this attraction? You mentioned it was $60 for the taxi to the Martha Rae bamboo rafting, BUT as I understand it, where one takes these rafts it's only about 2 miles from the port. So why is it $60 for 2 miles? And when you say $60 (also) for the rafting, is this per person or for your group? How many can one of these bamboo rafts take? (we are two adults, small sized, and 3children ages8, 10 12.)

Response from Pam H | Reviewed this property |
I would not recommend this. It is not a very wide raft. When you first get on it feels wobbly, almost like a canoe. Probably wouldn't be good for hip surgery recovery. Something you don't see in the pictures is the fact that... More
