Canyoning Adventure-Aventuras Tierras Adentro, Puerto Rico [01:33]
If you don't really know what Canyoning actually entails, think of it as caving in the open air. This adventure follows a river downstream using as many different techniques as possible, such as rappelling, via ferratas, crossing zip-lines, swimming and jumping from high ledges in short, the kind of stirring sensations that are bound to appeal to the child in all of us. Our Canyoning adventure takes place next to the Caribbean National Forest , better known locally as El Yunque. Our adventure starts with a hike, topped by an entertaining mid-forest crash course on rappelling and related subjects. Following immediately are thrilling but surprisingly easy via ferrata and monkey bridge jaunts. These are designed to serve as a warm-up for your next challenge. You'll subsequently rappel into a canyon next to a thundering waterfall whose roar will get you totally focused on continuing to the next trial. Then, on the face of a black granite wall, you'll do a second via ferrata with a few rock climbing moves between rebar handles. This in turn, will take you to a rappel-zip line. Swishing down a rope you'll splash into the river, getting yourself acclimated for other challenges ahead, in a completely different element. More to come: Diving through waterfalls, exciting zip lines, heart pounding free jumps, and a vertical straight up rock climb.
Zipline/Ferrata Adventure [01:25]
This is not your ordinary zip-line or canopy tour; this is an adventure. On our zip-lines you'll experience dizzying heights as you soar over the great Angeles sinkhole of the Rio Camuy cave system. Our adventure starts with a hike, topped by an entertaining mid-forest crash course on ziplining and ferrata techniques. Geared and psyched up, you'll start a series of zip-lines and 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 vias ferratas, 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 mouth of Angeles Cave as you zip down into the darkness. And thats not all, to give you a taste of our hard core Caving Adventure, you will enter into the twilight zone and take a free jump into the Rio Camuy. Float back to the serenity of light and enjoy lunch and tierra firme while it lasts. 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 strong feeling of a true adventure and a challenging accomplishment.
