The guides were nice & fun but the rafting was quite a bit shorter than expected, which was fine given the price, but was promised a little more. It was also very disorganized, we arrived late & were very rushed to get organised after our...More

Really had fun with this rafting company, the guide, Victor, spoke good english and made the whole trip very enjoyable. The rapids on this river were great, and there was a cool spot where you could climb up a rock and jump. Highly recommend!

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!

Here in Arequipa the level of the water will be normal in December. If it rains a lot (February/March) and the water level gets to high, we will not go to the river because it can be dangerous. But for now, we haven´t had... More
