  • We had such a great time on our rafting trip! We did the racecourse in the afternoon and it was perfect! The water was a bit low, so the rapids weren’t too intense, but we still really enjoyed the trip down the river. The views were beautiful, and our guide was so kind and informative! We got to ride with him, his 5 year old son, and puppy! They were absolutely delightful, and even his son knew a lot about the rapids and rocks that we were passing through! Would definitely recommend and would return next time we’re in NM!
  • Do no miss this great way to spend the afternoon! I took my wife, sister and daughter on a half-day rafting trip with Cottam's today. The trip was well-organized from start to finish. The price was fair and I was offered a 10% discount by a helpful operator. The trip on the Rio was spectacular. However what made the trip was our excellent guide. He ensured we had a safe and fun ride. Even better he gave a great geology, local history and environmental talk as we ventured down river. We will definitely be using Cottam's again!
