It is a very popular destination with many European paddlers visiting its classic whitewater runs due to its unique granite slides, numerous perfect boofing drops, and continuous technical rapids.

There are also some excellent steeper creeks in the area like the Egua a fantastic steep pool drop creek with long slides and many drops a must for any boofing god.
