Rafting and Tubing

Tubing on the Guadalupe River

Floating the River is an absolute must when traveling to New Braunfels during the summer!  Rio offers some of the best Guadalupe River tubing in Texas. Make a day trip or spend the night in one of Rio’s RV campsites or riverside cabins. For a fun and exciting 2-5-hour float, visit our on-site tube rental facility.

We also offer kayak rentals. All rentals include a shuttle upstream for a float back down the Guadalupe River to Rio Guadalupe Resort. Non-guests with private equipment may use the shuttle for a fee. Shuttle services may be limited in off-season. Call 830-964-3613  for updated shuttle schedule.

We accept cash and all major credit cards. Checkout tends to go faster when the deposit is paid in cash.
