Trip Description

Aventuras chief objective is to provide all participants with a day of FUN through adventures that are both exciting and challenging. Rappelling, climbing, swimming, via ferratas, free jumps, body rafting and exhilarating zip-lines all in one full invigorating day.

NO experience is necessary. But words of advice… do not compare us with other adventure tour companies. You might fool yourself! Others can serve as warm-ups or slightly test you for the real thing. Ours is a hard-core adventure. This is for real! It is physically demanding and requires sharp and attentive participants. You will be scrambling under and over boulders in blackness only aided by your headlamp and physical abilities.  You will be trained and required to climb hundreds of feet and to make the safety clips on your own. You will have your life, literally, in your own hands.

Our guides are trained and certified professionals and will assist and prepare you for the adventure.

However, if you think you are ready, you can go straight for a once in a lifetime Caving challenge that will guarantee to reward you with an intoxicating adrenaline rush.

A Taste of Things to Come!

You will explore Angeles’ Cave, part of the famous Rio Camuy cave system in its truly natural state. As the only company with the rights to access we assure a pristine underground gem. Put on your lamped helmet, buckle your life jacket, don your harness… and now you’re ready for a once in a lifetime caving experience.

Geared and psyched up, you’ll start a series of zip-lines and soar over the great Angeles’ sinkhole of the Río Camuy cave system. As you enjoy the excitement you’ll also become part of the surreal beautiful setting of nature’s own moss-and-fern wall paper embellishing everything, birds flying below, rising mist and the rumbling of the river that will enticingly catch your eye, as it magically appears and disappears into the underground world.

To add more excitement, the zip-lines are linked by sections of via ferrata, techniques that were developed during World War I to access high places via vertical pathways equipped with cables, metal rebars and ladders.

Topping this off, you will be engulfed by the enormous mouth of the incomparable Angeles Cave as you nervously rappel 130 feet into its twilight zone.

Inside the cave you’ll thrill to the adventure of exploring its large chambers, traveling its subterranean rivers and wondering, perhaps with a touch of uneasiness, what’s around the next corner.  You’ll be awed at the cave’s huge stalagmites and stalactites, and other strange formations developed over eons of calcite water drippings. Other geological marvels you’ll encounter are the sparkling crystal clear pools and the abundant fossils of sea creatures that lived millions of years ago. Mud slides, body rafting, free jumps into darkness, and other exciting surprises await you.

More to come, exit the sinkhole by climbing the exposed via ferrata section that will take you to the end of your journey and

reward you with a true and strong sense of accomplishment.

This is living life to the fullest!

Light hiking boots with good friction are the best.  Sneakers are satisfactory. Socks are a must, without them the sand will grind your feet. No shoes with elastic cords or without laces. Do not wear water booties, aqua shoes or sandals.
