Guatemala whitewater film

The entire 43 minute film, "Guatemala, The Preservation of Wild Rivers," can be viewed by going to Home

"An expedition to film and bring attention to endangered rivers becomes a national crisis when angry Mayan villagers kidnap paddlers they’ve mistaken for hydroelectric engineers."

Make a difference and get involved. Go to our "Contact" page to save a river and save a life.

Love the video and the cause.The travelogue part brings back a lot of good memories.I was too broke to make it down there last year.There is a remote possibility of going this year.If anyone is driving down this year, I have a ducky and some old gear to donate to Max.Maybe others would donate some stuff too.

Is that Max Young standing in the dump trucking raft?

Has anybody ever run the stuff above the cave at Semuc Champey?

I'm super excited to see this magnificent country for the first time. I leave next week to spend a month there running rivers with Roberto.

That was the best 42 minutes I've spent watching a video in years. I had no idea this happened - this was 2011? Are there any updates to this story? I'd hate to spoil it as it became quite gripping not knowing the end, but that was awesome!

Great job and hats off to everyone involved - pints are on me if we ever cross paths!

Silly me

The update is obvious if you watch the other videos, or read the website, although I recommend skipping straight to the full video though, it's worth it
