Costa Rica is a kayaker’s destination spot, with tropical flora and fauna and incredible whitewater that makes for a memorable experience.

Ecuador Kayak Trip Options!

At the foot of the magnificent Andes lie some of the greatest winter-month paddling: Ecuador! Ecuador is the land of the tallest snow-capped volcanoes and amazon jungle, with a rich indigenous culture, tropical rain forests and incredible whitewater. This gem of a country compliments our Costa Rica trips, with more warm-weather paddling during the cold winter months.
Skill Level: Any
Dates: September through February in Ecuador
Whether mountain biking is your first passion or a casual interest, biking in Ecuador is a must-do for an international travel. You will explore parts of the country not included on the generic itinerary, biking through rain forest canopys or down snow-capped volcanoes. Mountain biking may be arranged as a full week adventure or as an add-on to a paddling trip.
We have spent twenty+ years creating the best kayaking trips to be found in the international community. It is not just our choice of countries, or the rivers we enjoy in each country, but our eye to detail. Personally running each trip with our own hand-picked group of international guides, we share a deep commitment to the communities in each country. We go out of our way to support small local businesses such as the bakeries ("panaderias"), stores ("supers"), bars ("cervezas") and local sites of interest. The quality of our trips extends far beyond the paddling (which is the easy part), it is our work initiating you into the wonderful cultures of both Costa Rica and Ecuador that set us apart.
Our commitment to you is that we will provide a trip that will exceed your expectations. We will share with you a better value trip than you could do on your own. The time you spend with us will leave you feeling inspired and restored of spirit. Our trips will exceed your expectations!
