Very well organised and totally safe. Cusipata are a great company for rafting, especially if you're a pair of novices like us. That's not to say that the experience wasn't exhilarating. You certainly get your adrenaline fix :) You have a guide in the boat...More

We did the rafting activity with Cusipata, our guide was Willy, very friendly and funny, his english is perfect and he gives very good indications and tips. The views during the trip were very nice, the water is quite cold :) I strongly recommend them

A ton of fun with friendly guides, but the wet suits could have been in better shape and they could have explained more as we were going to the river from Arequipa. But lots of fun and worth it!

I definitely recommend doing this tour if you like some adrenaline. The guide we had was good and they give you pretty solid gear and are very helpful getting you set up. It was a lot of fun.

You just need 3 hours in total since pick-up until drop-off back at Arequipa. One hour travel + preparation each way, and one hour in the water. Price is also good, and they give you a snack and water at the end. The instructors are...More
