White River Rafting in Honduras
The Cangrejal River in Honduras is the perfect setting for an adventurous activity like White River Rafting. The river's banks border the Pico Bonito National Park on one side and the Nombre de Dios National Park on the other. As the river's waters originate in the beautiful and rugged Nombre de Dios mountain range, it also has a steep gradient. This speeds up the water on its way towards the Caribbean Sea. Furthermore the particular geology of the area has produced huge rocks sometimes even of the size of a house. These are scattered in the riverbed and form small waterfalls and rapids that are ideal for this activity.
The most common is the section downstream from the municipality of El Naranjo, which consists of class III-IV rapids. This is the most popular section of the river and offers a lot of excitement. It triggers a high level of adrenaline in participants, yet is so safe that no previous experience is required.

"The rafting at jungle river lodge was one of our favourite experiences of our trip yet ! Our guide Juan Carlos is amazing at what he does and makes the experience unforgettable. He made it really fun and immediately made us feel at ease as we’ve never done white water rafting before! We first did some bouldering and swimming in the river and then rafted down the river afterwards, always making safety a priority too ! I didn’t feel comfortable jumping off the higher rocks but there was never any pressure to do it all and just do what we’re comfortable with. I would definitely recommend doing the rafting at the jungle river lodge!"
