Bamboo Raft thru La Vieja River
The bamboo raft or “balsaje” as it is known is a favourite local leisure activity, floating atop a bamboo raft as the smooth flowing currents of the La Vieja (Old Lady) river meander through stunning natural scenery. This day out is very relaxing and a great way to get away from the modern world for a while and enjoy some peace and quiet. A picnic lunch is served along the way on a shaded beach.
