Yura thermal baths or white water rafting

Will be in Arequipa for 1 1/2 days. Is there enough to see in the city for the whole time or should we do a 1/2 day trip to some place near the city. I was thinking of the Yura thermal springs or maybe a white water rafting trip. Anyone have experience with either of these?

thanks... Patrick

Hello Patrick,

The thermal springs in Yura are really small and are not that special; the hot springs in Chivay, the Colca Canyon are much better. The Colca Canyon is absolutely a must see when you are travelling to Arequipa. Should you have a day or half a day off in Arequipa, there are many adventures activities to be done; rafting is a good option, as well as downhill mountain biking from the volcanos Misti, Chachani or Pichu Pichu, horseback riding or rock climbing.

Have a nice trip to Peru!
