I'm from the US and just moved to Lima, Peru and I wanted to start kayaking. I've taken a couple of whitewater classes, but never learned to roll. Does anyone have any recommendations for schools or a place to take classes?

I'd also like to know if there are any clubs or people to paddling with.

I've been up to Lunahuana once and there's a ton of whitewater outlets. but you never know who's trustworthy. Oh, I can speak Spanish (it's not perfect, but I can manage) if that makes a difference.

You need to meet up with Juanito in Cusco, great guy who runs a kayak/raft outfit there. We just did a trip with him on the Black canyon of the Apurimac and it was unreal.

His contact on FB is

I believe he's in Chile for the season but you should still get in contact with him.
