Overview
Get access to a private nature reserve on land once home to the Taino Indians during this adventure tour in Arecibo. With a guide in the lead to provide instruction and ensure your safety, body raft through rain forest canyons, explore river caves, and hike through the forest. Receive personalized attention and have plenty of time to ask questions about the local flora and fauna as you travel in a small group of 10 people or fewer.
Highlights
  • Access to a private nature reserve on ancestral homeland of the Taino Indians
  • All instruction and equipment for hiking, spelunking, and body rafting
  • Guided commentary on the forest plants and their traditional medicinal uses
  • Round-trip transportation from San Juan, if option is selected
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group at the private nature reserve, the ancestral homeland of the Taino Indians. This tour gives you access to the river and rain forest in that nature reserve, as well as guided commentary and instruction for all activities. Begin with a hike through the rain forest, during which your guide teaches you about the local flora and the ways in which the Taino people used all the plants. Then go spelunking through deep caves to see unusual rock formations and refuel with a picnic lunch. Then, your guide shows you how to float on your back and body raft, between the towering walls of canyons. Your life vest keeps you afloat; no swimming skills are needed. A short hike through the forest takes you back to your departure point at the nature reserve.

I had a great time on this excursion. It’s a nice mix of hiking and swimming down the river, with some caves and waterfalls thrown in. I didn’t find it overly strenuous but you have to be in reasonable shape to hike up and down some steep slopes. Also, definitely wear shoes
