The Rio Cahabon flows through the Alta Verapaz department in the eastern part of the country, between Lake Izabal and the capital city of Cobán. The Cahabon is one of Guatemala’s few rivers that has guided wild water rafting trips all year round. The Cahabon has rapids leveled I, II III – IV, depending on the time of the year with calmer water sections, and passes many attractions such as caves, waterfalls, and also “el Paqueno Paraiso” thermal hot springs. The emerald waters of Rio Cahabon also take paddlers past a limestone cavern and the Mayan ruins of Quiriguá. Quiriguá is an UNESCO world heritage site and although it is one of the smallest Mayan Cities, it is one of the most notables due to its magnificent series of monuments and for being home to the largest monuments including “stelae” in the Mayan world. It is the perfect combination between adrenaline and rest, emotion and distraction, nature and adventure. You can navigate the whole year around, and you can navigate from one to three consecutive days, so camping is another option alongside rafting. For Rafting it is not necessary have a perfect physique conditions. You just need to know how to swim. Note: Not suitable for pregnant women and people with a heart disease.
