Ecuador is also great for rafting and kayaking, as there are dozens of raging rivers coursing through the lush green forests. Tena is one of the popular spots, as it offers a high density of rivers – as well as Baños and Quito. You can enjoy the thrill of tumbling down the rapids in an inflatable dingy with six or eight people, whether you are beginners taking on a Class II river or experts attempting a Class V run. Make sure that you only go rafting with a reputable company that offers safe equipment and well-trained guides.
