Yes, you can bring your camera if you like, but if it is not waterproof then it will 100% get ruined. At Drumbó your options are bringing a waterproof camera, renting a GOpro from us or buying a disposable waterproof camera.
The Drumbó Base Camp has a reception, bar, sitting area inside and out, showers and a sauna. It’s pretty much the perfect rafting base, or at least we think so… :)
