Meet the Yacu Amu Rafting team


The Yacu Amu Rafting team not only endevours to give you a memorable experience but a safe one too.

A comprehensive safety briefing will be given at the start of every trip and each crew will be trained in the paddling techniques needed to navigate our way down the river.

We use top of the line specialized rafting equipment to ensure your safety and enjoyment. That includes self-bailing rafts, high floation life jackets, protective helmets and light weight paddles.

We carry First Aid, raft repair and river rescue kits on every trip - and our guides are trained to use them!

We always have at least two guides on every trip and utilize safety kayakers where appropriate.

We carry a cellular telephone where appropriate for emergency communication.

We aim to continue setting the standards for safety and professionalism in the rafting industry in Ecuador.


Yacu Amu Rafting is fully committed to conserving the rivers and wild places we travel in. River travel in itself is a very low impact activity but we ensure our trips leave only shouts of delight on the wind and take only enduring memories.
