Our Tico guides - Luis, Olgher, Pablo and Davis. Damn good kayakers, pretty good with lunch and if you ask nicely they will throw their Tico gang signs.

Prior to our run on the Lower Pacuare, we visited the local serpentarium. After seeing enough venomous snakes to be sure you'll never walk in the jungle again, we met Helen.
