Full description
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. While you ride, admire the stunning views of the Andes that surrounds you and be at one with nature. Once your rafting rapid ride is over, you can enjoy a hot shower to warm up before heading home.

Excursion operators had a slight problem on their end and I wasn’t able to go on the day I had booked. Thankfully I was able to reschedule at no cost and the experience itself was amazing. Definitely recommend confirming the GYG reservation well in advance

The adventure is very cool but the place is dirty and very poorly maintained. The appearance of the Place and the people who work there deserved better attention.
