Your rafting adventure begins with pickup from your hotel, or at the local operator’s office, depending on the option chosen, followed by a safety information briefing. After your introduction it's time to follow the road upriver where the rafts await you. Once you’re all kitted out with the necessary equipment, which includes wet suits, helmets, and life jackets, it’s time to head into the water where the real fun begins. In the water, ride your raft over level 3 and level 4 rapids and enjoy a fun and exciting ride through the Mendoza River. Feel the thrill of adrenaline and immerse yourself in the adventure as your raft is jerked around in the rapids. Work together in a team on the raft to paddle through the rapids and move through the river at speed.

Very fun activity to get to know the River and the impressive landscape that surrounds it. We did it in December and it was very good in terms of weather. They give you wetsuits to protect you from cold. It is advisable to bring your own shoes that can get wet, do not indicate it previously. Also, bring a towel to change after the activity. We did that and Canopy. We observe that the boys who only did Rafting had to wait all afternoon for the others to finish to return to the hotels, to take it into account. There is a restaurant for lunch that is very economical although you can also bring your food. Came from the activity sell the photos and videos to 500 AR. It is not possible to bring a water chamber or Go Pro. The only thing we did not like was that it took more than 1 hour to pick us up at our accommodation. Despite this, very nice and enjoyable activity!

The best away guide Pablo, a genius. Very good rafting experience. Lack of maintenance in the suits but the place is very good. You can also eat well at affordable prices
