Trip Description

Big Waterfall Adventure
Big Tree Forest, Via Ferrata, River Trekking
And Big Waterfall Rappelling
“Experience Puerto Rico Best Rainforest Adventure”

The adventure begins on private property around “conucos” of oranges, coffee, and plantain. It all starts with a little warm up and interpretation of the beauty of the area as we move into the Big Tree Forest. As we enter the primary forest, we will enjoy the variety of native trees of Puerto Rico, while listening to the songs of the forest birds and the beautiful sound of the river. Soon we will reach the “India Waterfall ” and we will climb several waterfalls by going trough several Via Ferratas and different rock climbs. We will go through small pools and waterfalls up to the top of the mountain. Upon reaching the top, we will enjoy the beauty of The Old Sage of The Forrest, a native centenary tree that astonishes with its natural beauty and intrinsic immensity.

Once at the top of the mountain, peace will be transformed into pure adrenaline, and we will get to enjoy an incredible combination of amazing scenic natural beauty, and we are going to descents through multiple waterfalls, Big Waterfall Rappelling.

The first waterfalls, “Balconies Waterfall” 100 ft. Upon reaching the base, we will get to enjoy a majestic view of the countryside of Puerto Rico and will be heading for our the next challenge, experience going down “The Beard Waterfall” 150ft Rappel!(click to open a link for video) an utterly exhilarating experience!”. Once you complete this experience that is completely out of this world and you get to catch your breath and find your inner peace, we will get to the next waterfall, “Romancing In The Stone” 80ft. This waterfall is small but undoubtedly offers a great technical challenge but highly amusing. At the end of all this adrenaline rush, we will walk down the river and jump into a natural pool and will get to relax surrounded by the beauty of the forest. Congratulations, you made it!!!video link
