What you'll do

As soon as you arrive, you will be provided with safety equipment required for the adventure. We will hike through the forest for about an hour and a half observing parts of the Second biggest radio telescope in the world, the Arecibo Observatory, between limestone formations and a unique forest. The hike requires good physical condition. After the trail, we will reach the river full of limestone formations and springs & small waterfalls.Then we hike next to the river giving you the opportunity to relax floating down stream passing natural limestone formations. A new trail will be followed--observing natural sinkholes and other limestone formations. This experience will be unique since you will be far from the beaten path & in full contact with nature. The hike guides you through ancient Taino paths that used to connect the ocean and the mountains. The trekking takes over in the Tanama River in a remote private access giving you the experience that most travelers search when they want an authentic adventure. The view of the Tanama river while you hike through this amazing place will make unforgettable memories.The adventure will be interpreted and a guide we will be with you the entire time. We will also immortalize memories for free with cameras and guide you through the best hike in the island.

I have been an adventure guide since 2005 while working with Aventureo PR. Certified with NCRC , American Health (first aid) and Natural Science at UPR of Puerto Rico. I grew up less than 10 minutes from the forest. My passion for hiking and exploring this limestone wonder guided me through the years to become an adventure guide in the most amazing place in the island, Tanama. I love share the real inside Island. I spent most of my days between the tanama river and farm. Love to travel hopefully one day i will travel every country in the americas . Good vibes

Jose is awesome and very very knowledgeable and this was a gorgeous experience. Definitely not as hard as the description makes it sound. Probably hiked/swam around 2ish miles on the route we took, it was slippery and muddy and you do have to be able to get in and out of water. I know he was taking pictures, but I didn’t regret bringing my waterproof camera. Would recommend this awesome experience.

José Luis and his wife (who did most of the guiding for us in English because José Luis was mostly leading the tour in Spanish) were great! They were super respectful of the nature and the environment, and were teaching the guests also how to do the same, which I greatly appreciated. José Luis was very funny and entertaining, while guiding us through a somewhat difficult terrain. Be physically prepared for a strenuous but fun day, in one of the coolest nature activities on the island.

At first I was a bit worried since my family and I are not big hikers. It was definitely an amazing experience! Thank you for everything José Luis and Niemi! From Miriam Eric and Maritza

Una experiencia maravillosa que superó nuestras expectativas. El anfitrión con su basto conocimiento nos instruyó con datos interesantes. Las vistas son espectaculares, el agua fría pero deliciosa, el tour va con calma, muchos spot para fotos, el tiempo es el adecuado si van preparados con sus meriendas y ropa adecuada. Fácil de llegar y excelente comunicación y el guía toma fotos. 🤌🏽🏞🌞🦇

My 12 and 16 year old children thought it was a wonderful land based activity and worth the 2 hr drive each way from Rincon. Definitely a unique experience hosted by a funny, knowledgeable, and kind team!

This experience is one that you would never have a chance to enjoy without joining this tour. It’s truly a magical part of Puerto Rico. You will spend most of your time in the water to make your way to a section of cave. We wished for longer layers. I would recommend a rash guard top, quick drying athletic pants and hiking shoes that won’t saturate too much. Definitely have a change of clothes with you and plenty of snacks that will survive the water. Keep in close communication with your guide for the most accurate meeting place! It was a real struggle for us and once you get out of civilization there is no signal. Overall this is one excursion to not miss. Jose is so knowledgeable and adventurous that he made it truly special. We would absolutely tour with them again.
