A fantastic day out experiencing a stunning part of Granada that we would not have otherwise come across. Wayne was a great host, as was his colleague Eric, and both the kids and I loved plunging in the crystal clear waters of the Rio Verde. Highly recommended for families as well as adult groups.

It was an one in a life time experience! I’ve never done anything like this before and I enjoyed every second of it. Even though it’s November, the wetsuit kept us warm the entire time. Wayne is an expert. His instructions are clear and he gives the best advice on how to do things (e.g. jumping into the water). It’s a fun and exciting adventure! Definitely recommend!

This was a fantastic experience from start to finish! I’m a very confident swimmer but not great at heights; my husband isn’t a confident swimmer but is fine with heights: we both had an amazing time! Wayne and Javier met us close to where we were staying so that we didn’t have to drive into Granada. The journey was a thrill in itself - just stunning scenery at every turn and it gave us a chance to get to know Wayne and Javier and learn more about the area. Once we arrived at the river (via a private, locked track) we got our wetsuits on and started the walk up the river. The wetsuits were amazing - 5mm thick and great for spending a few hours in beautifully crystal clear water, even on a cloudy day!! By the end of the trip, there had been rain, hail, thunder and lightening, which all just really enhanced the experience and the sense of adventure! We booked this trip because we knew we couldn’t do this without guides. Wayne and Javier shared their unique knowledge of the area - I’ve never poked my head through a small waterfall to find a tiny magical cave before! They also both gave us advice, reassurance and encouragement the whole way and we LOVED every minute of it!! Most of the reviews reflect the experience exactly (we ignored the one rather over-dramatic review!) This is definitely a not-to-miss experience if you love the outdoors! Just BOOK!! (Take old trainers to wear in the water, swimming costume to wear under the wetsuit, snacks for before and after and a change of shoes!)

This was an incredible experience that I highly recommend. We had SO MUCH FUN. Communication with Wayne was quick and efficient. Our guide Javier was super—he pushed us to try jumps that were challenging but didn’t make us do anything that we didn’t want to do or that he didn’t think was good for us. The wetsuits were in superb condition and made it no big deal to hike in cold water. The entirety of the experience was in the river—walking, swimming and scrambling up rocks all the way. They supplied the wetsuits and had an extra set of hiking shoes I could use in the river. I could have worn my sneakers, but trail running shoes, hiking shoes, or my Keen sandals with the rubber toes would have been best. We NEVER would have found something like this on our own. The river access was on private property. The drive to the river was beautiful and we saw lots of ibexes running up and down the hills which was an added bonus. This experience was unique and challenging and we loved it.

When showing the pictures on airbnb of this experience to my (11 and 12 y.o.)kids they wanted me to book it because it looked adventurous to them. We were staying in Marbella but wanted to do some more than just sun bathing. So I went along, but wasnt so sure if I (51 year old not too fit mama) would think it was fun too...'jumping off cliffs and climbing upstream :-)'. Turned out to be really wonderful for all fice of us! Wayne had provided as good as new wet suits that were according our size (we had had contact by app when he asked for height/size) that were comfortable while the temperature was 23C that day. The water is cold and crystal clear, with wonderful scenery. We saw only very few other people in October, great nature and silence. I have also been to Australia and Africa but this was sure an experience as good as any that I have had there. Wayne had a guide with him that could speak a lot of languages and was a very good help too, the kids loved them both. we never felt like it wasn't safe or we couldn't do it. Just go your own pace. My kids did all jumps, started out with small ones and as we went further along the higher jumps came. Standing in a cave closed at both sides by a waterfall was great. Saw some wildlife during the trip too. If you do not want to jump that is fine too, it is not necessary to love this experience. I only did one jump myself and still remember the great uncomparable feeling of it. After this experience we drove to Granada as it is close to this wonderful town, had dinner there and then drove back to Marbella. Thank you Wayne and guide for the wonderful time.

The Rio Verde has spectacular natural scenery and crystal clear water, with natural waterfalls. You will enjoy the adventure! Just make sure you are prepared for the windy roads on the way to the Rio Verde, if you get motion sickness. But, the experience is well worth the long, windy drive out to the river.
