Spend a Half Day on an Exciting Zipline Tour in El Yunque

April 23rd, 2009

…h; comienzan en lo alto y van descendiendo — así que ya tendrán una idea… La primera parte de la aventura consiste en caminar hacia lo alto de la colina. La caminata hacia la primera plataforma es de 0.8 millas. Pero resultó que Roqui, siendo biólogo,  nos detuvo en varias ocasiones para señalar varios aspectos interesantes del bosque (luego hablamos de eso) y nos dio la oportunidad de recuperar las…

Batey Zipline Eco Adventure is Serious Fun

May 29th, 2011

Ray and I enjoy adventure tours — those with ziplines, rappelling, hiking, and other fun things. We also enjoy going to special, off the beaten path places. Batey Zipline Adventure, in beautiful Utuado, offers you all that and something extra — caves (both in water and on land) for your touring pleasure. And, believe me, this tour was a pleasure. It is a little tricky to get to, but it is well worth the trip. Some Background Jorge a…

Get Some Culture and Adventure with Tropical Adventure Guides

May 15th, 2011

When you are on vacation on a large island like Puerto Rico, which has so many things to see and do, it’s often the case that you don’t get a chance to do everything you would like to. Usually, something gets missed. If you are interested touring some of the Puerto Rican countryside and doing an adventure tour — now, don’t have to choose. Tropical Adventure Guides (TAG) has a "culture and adventure tour" that…

A Perfect Zipline for Kids & the Less Adventurous

January 2nd, 2011

…eb site for more information. As with all adventure sports, you will need to sign a release waiver. You must be in reasonably good health to participate. To get to the Rain Forest Zip Line Corp, you turn off of Road 191 at KM 0.9 and follow to the end of the road. There’s is the last place on the left….

Get Ready for a Unique Outdoor Experience

July 24th, 2011

I know many people go on vacation to just relax and do nothing. But if you want to experience something fun that will get your blood and adrenaline pumping, try a zipline adventure trip. Ray and I enjoy these adventure tours very much, so when we find a new company that offers it, we have to give it a try. One of the newest courses here in Puerto Rico is Unique Outdoor Experience “Tree Top Adventure at Floriham” in Canovanas. This a…

Get a Full Day of Adventure Fun in a Half-Day with Rocaliza

May 24th, 2009

What do you do when you don’t have a lot of time to spend in Puerto Rico, but you want to do something really fun? You go on Rocaliza’s Half-Day El Salto Adventure. This adventure takes you in to the Carite rain forest in Caguas (which is only 45 minutes away from the San Juan area), where you hike, trek through rivers, climb a waterfall and then fly back down the mountain on zip lines. What an adventure — and it can all be do…

Thrilling Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park

December 19th, 2010

If you are looking for some extreme adventure on vacation, we found another great place for you — Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park in Orocovis. Does zip lining — either regular (sitting) or laying facedown, manuevering across suspended bridges, climbing up & rappeling down rock walls, and mountain biking sound exciting enough for you? We did a half day tour of this park and had a blast. Not only was the scenery great, but they…

Have a Real Adventure with Hiking, Rappelling & Ziplines

April 26th, 2009

What is vacation for if not to try different things and experience something new? If you are the adventurous type, Rocaliza offers 2 adventures along the El Salto river in the Carite rain forest in the mountains of Caguas. One trip is a half-day adventure for people with only a few hours to spare (great if you’re on a cruise!), and the other is a longer one for people with more time for fun! We have lots of free time, so we did them both!…

23 Things To Do With Kids Within 1 Hour of San Juan

September 10th, 2008

Traveling with kids changes everything. You need to find a place where there are activities that everyone in the family can enjoy. Luckily, you are planning to visit Puerto Rico where there are lots of activities that every member of your family will love. The first question to ask yourself is What do my kids like to do? Do they like to play in the water or do they prefer to play on land? Are they into nature? Are they really daredevils or mo…

40 Things to do in Northeast Puerto Rico

August 17th, 2009

I am the vacation planner in our family, so I know how difficult it can be to figure out where to stay or what to do when you are visiting some place for the first time. This article may help you plan some of your time here in Puerto Rico, particularly on the northeast part of the island. By "northeast", I am referring to the part of the island that you can reach by driving east from the San Juan area. We live and have a tourist vacat…

A Fun Day of Waterfalls, Hiking, Climbing, Rappelling, and Ziplines

November 21st, 2008

New for 2012- a 100 ft waterfall rappel! Amazing! This is one fantastic trip- it has it all! If you are the adventurous type, Puerto Rico is full of activities for you. We decided that we should try a guided adventure tour that included hiking, swimming, climbing and zip lining. There are a number of companies that offer these type of day-long adventures but after reading the descriptions of the different trips, we decided that Acampa’…

Cave Tubing, Hiking and Petrogylphs Around the Tanama River

October 24th, 2011

Though Puerto Rico is full of all sorts of neat things to do, one of the few things we don’t have here is river rapids for tubing or rafting. We did find an adventure that offers "lazy river" tubing through a cave, along with some hiking and Taino cave exploration. Those are some of my favorite things all rolled into one day, and all in beautiful Utuado. So, when some family members came to visit, we decided to check it out. Utu…

Soar Through the Treetops on a Zip Line

March 9th, 2008

Have you ever wanted to soar from tree to tree like Tarzan? We found some people that will help you zoom from tree to tree through the forest on a zip line. And without even breaking a sweat! The Original Canopy Tour company opened their first forest canopy tour adventure in Costa Rica in 1992. Since then, they’ve expanded into many other places and now, to Puerto Rico. The first one on the island! Around the end of 2007, the Original C…

Top 10 Must-See and Must-Do Things

July 31st, 2011

We get asked lots of questions through this web site. One of the most frequently asked questions is "What are the must-do activities and must-see places for my visit to Puerto Rico?" That’s a really difficult question to answer without knowing anything about the person asking the question. The answer is different for each person. Something that is a must do for me might be totally boring for you. And vice versa. Case in point &m…

Fun for the Little Ones at Villa Campestre

June 23rd, 2013

Once they get tired of the beach or the pool, finding fun things for littler kids to do can be a challenge. But there is a small park called Villa Campestre located in Guaynabo, about 15 minutes from San Juan, that offers something different to do for little kids. They have animals to feed and pet, pony rides, small amusement rides and slides, and "ice" skating just to name a few activities. It is mainly set up to handle local groups…
