Itinerary

Having picked you up from your hotel, your professional guide will take you straight into the heart of Puerto Rico. Here the landscape changes from the idyllic beaches and turquoise waters into the unique karst region; easily identified by its varying rock formations, from limestone cliffs, to sinkholes and most importantly, caves.

Get ready to be hit with humidity as you step out of the air-conditioned minibus and into the borders of the El Yunque rainforest. Your guide will take you to cool off again in the deep, Taino caverns; explore the magnificent rock formations, the one-of-a-kind stalagmites and stalactites and see if you can spot any of the petroglyphs carved in the 13th Century by Taino Indians.

This region is protected and usually not accessible to tourists due to its rare biodiversity and history. This is an exclusive opportunity to adventure into the unknown; go deep into Puerto Rico’s past, physically and culturally as you explore the underground network of caves and learn the meanings behind impressive petroglyphs. This tour is not made for the squeamish however, as you will encounter snakes, spiders, crustaceans and bats along your way.

Having had your fill of adventure and discovery, your guide will take you to a popular, local restaurant where you can taste artisan produce and discuss everything you have just learned.

This is an unmissable experience for those looking to test their comfort zone and for those excited to learn more about their surroundings.
