Cahabon Rafting Tour

Río Cahabón offers the best opportunity for whitewater rafting in Guatemala. The river rapids cover a variety of difficulty levels, ranging from class I to IV – all but the most difficult rapids. Much of this 7.5-mile (12 km) route has class III and IV rapids.

Cahabon Rafting Tour

Cobán, Alta Verapaz

If you visit during the rainy season (from June to February), you’ll get to experience the rapids at their best, gushing with recent rainfalls. But you can enjoy rafting the Cahabón at any time of year. This tour will provide you with rafting equipment, and the guide will give an overview of safety information before you get in the water.

As you speed past the banks of the river, you’ll get to see some of the area’s wildlife. Keep an eye out for Guatemala’s tropical species. Iguanas and toucans are common sights.

Please note: Everyone who takes this tour must know how to swim. No one younger than 12 is allowed to go rafting.
