Man overboard!


My younger son fell out of his tube after going over the large rapids shown in yesterday's photo.  This was not a problem, as he could simply pull himself back up and into the tube using its straps and handles.  

We were already wet from the tubing, so it did not make a difference that Stuart went in the drink with his swimming suit on.  Hacienda Guachipelin supplied us life preservers and helmets, so no harm can come from this little episode.

Fortunately, I had my waterproof camera to record this embarrassing moment of Stuart's.  In the second photo, you can see Stuart give the thumbs up sign to signify all is well.  

Please excuse the quality of these photos, as the camera obviously had water on the lens, and I took the second photo backwards and over my shoulder, so the framing of the shot is off.  Behind Stuart in the second photo is my older son, who is floating down backwards at that moment, and one of the attendants in a blue helmet is visible behind him.

This concludes my series from the tubing portion of our Hacienda Guachipelin Adventure Tour day.

Ah, all's well that ends well and that thumbs up is really a great ending.

Looks like super fun! Nature's water parks are the best!

he looks invigorated but I would not want to get dunked. I can't believe this adventure you have been showing us is all one day at one place, Rincon de la Vieja and Hacienda Guachipilen. that i hard to believe you could do so many activities in the same day

These have been some pretty amazing action shots. We certainly got a feel for this adventure without getting those sore muscles that surely you must have experienced ater a day like this.
