I think you would be fine. The hike in is relatively flat and the trails are quite good. There are lots of people to help you too. We were a group of four:

65, 43, 58, and 55 respectively. None of us experienced any sorts of navigational problems.

Do it. It's a blast!

We're going to do it again in December. I'm now 56 and am really looking forward to this excursion.

I think it depends on how physically fit you are. The walk through the rain forest is about 45 min and depending on what time of year you're there it can be hot. You have to carry you're tube with you, which is one of the big truck tire tubes. We were there the last week in April and we were very glad to get to the river to cool off. There are a few places where the trail is a little steep, but not bad. They've built stairs over the worst parts. The ground is uneven. When we went the river was low so there was a lot of paddling involved. We took our children who were 10, 12 & 14 at the time. Both the 10 and 12 year old had trouble with carring the tubes and the paddling. Both of my parents are in their 70's and very active and fit (my dad still works as an electrical contractor and my mom has more energy than I do!) and I know they could do it. Hope this helps!
