World class whitewater experience!! Fantastic communication from beginning to end. Santi is the owner and operator of kayak Ecuador. He would get up in the mornings early arrange all of the logistics, go and check water levels and pair us with rivers that met our skill level. He went above and beyond to make sure that...
