…;o Abajo Forest, Toro Negro Forest or La Marquesa Forest. But that’s all changed now. In March 2009, Yunke Zipline Adventure opened for business in the foothills of El Yunque National Forest close to many areas that are on most visitors’ must do list. Since then, a couple other zip lines companies have opened in the area, but this one is still our favorite. For those of you that haven’t been on a zipline before — a zip l…



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…

While not the largest nor the most modern zip line facility on the island, it offers a zip line experience that the whole family can enjoy. Zip l…

…p with the safety harness, helmet, and gloves. Alfonso gave detailed safety instructions and explained about the zipline equipment. They follow National Cave and Rescue Commission rules for equipment — strong carabiners, harnesses, helmets, and gloves. They told us about the strength of the cables they use, and some of the standards they followed when constructing the zipline courses. My sister and nephew had never done anything like this,…



Get Ready for a Unique Outdoor Experience

…mdash; Cristian, Omar and Masso) and gearing up (harness, helmet and gloves), we walked down hill to a mini/demo zipline. The guides are all bilingual and nice guys. They all met in the Boy Scouts and decided to use some of the skills they learned in the Scouts and start a business. Great thinking! But I digress … At the demo zipline, they explained the gear, the general working of a zipline, and what we would have to do to safely have a…

Thrilling Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park

…enture platforms, but that’s inevitable. About Our Visit to the Park We met up with a couple who had never ziplined before and ended up doing a customized mini-course, with some ziplines, some hanging bridges and a rappel. The other couple was afraid of heights, but they did great despite that. It was great to see people stepping outside their comfort zone and trying something thrilling! I am sure they will talk about their experience for m…

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…

As an alternative, Batey Zipline Adventure offers a wide selection of tours on the same property that include hiking, caves, a river trip through El Portillo Cave, and also a tour with ziplines on the owner’s private property.

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.

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’…

Go For a Walk in La Marquesa Forest Park

March 15th, 2009

Guaynabo City has created a beautiful forest reserve of approximately 600 acres for the enjoyment of locals and visitors to the island, called La Marquesa Forest Park (or Parque Forestal La Marquesa in Spanish). We have been to La Marquesa Forest Park a few times to do the Original Canopy Tour zipline, which is located within this reserve. Over the past few years, we have seen the progress they’ve made on the Forest Park. Being pretty clo…



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…
