It was slightly underwhelming because the rafting was only an hour and the canopy was also very short, but the company was so kind and awesome! The place was beautiful to enjoy the mountains, river, and sun, but I thought the activities would be a little longer / more intense!

Excelente excursion. Nos pasaron a buscar por el punto en horario. Las actividades excelentes, todos los guias con muchisima onda. El parador tiene bastantes opciones para almorzar, ademas que esta a la vera del rio y es hermoso. Recuerden llevar efectivo ya que al ser parador de montaña no hay wifi por ende, no se aceptan tarjetas.

La actividad en si fue estupenda. Había hecho rafting hace mucho años en San Rafael y sin duda Potrerillos fue muchísimo mejor destino para esta actividad. El guia( que perdon que no recuerde el nombre) fue alucinante. La empresa (Rio aventura) que te lleva y trae desde tu hotel hasta el lugar( Potrerillos) es muy desordenada y desprolija, no la recomiendo. Asi mismo el lugar donde se realiza la actividad parece estar completamente abandonado.
