I always wanted to go guide on the Pacuare in Costa Rico when I was guiding and single haha!

I had a good friend go spend a season in New Zealand (don't remember the river) but she was based in Queenstown and she loved it.

I don't know this for a fact, but I would imagine it's easier as an American to land a job in Central or South America vs the further away continents.
