Mountain Tourism Basics:
....Toro Negro takes in the island's highest peaks, a spring-fed pool, a trail to a spectacular lookout, and a couple of man-made reservoirs resembling primeval lakes. For rugged remote beauty, visit Guilarte.
....The Camuy Underground Cave System formed by the Camuy river. The Rio Camuy Cave Park beautifully showcases several sinkholes, caves and the underground river, features a trolly sustem and guided tours.
....The Arecibo Observatory run by Stanford University is set in a large sinkhole, and offers superb views of surrounding karst hills from its visitors' deck.
....Caguana Indian Ceremonial Park was built by Taino Indians more than 800 years ago. Ball courts are bordered by rows of stone monoliths decorated with petroglyph etchings, the oldest archaeological site in the Caribbean, a rather amazing place to visit.
....Ziplining, rapelling, hiking, caving: Roberto of Batey Zipline Adventures will take you on breathtaking rappelling, zip lining or caving expeditions through tropical forest, caves and rivers. The karst topography of the northwestern hills has produced one of the largest river cave systems in the hemisphere, the Rio Camuy Caverns.....cavers rappel down cliffs or scale boulders, and try to comprehend the immense size; in places where cave ceilings have collapsed over the eons, narrow canyons frame the rivers, and adventerers float along them in life jackets or inflatable boats. This relatively new sport is known as "canyoning."
....Caguana Indian Ceremonial Park - the oldest archaeological site in the Caribbean, which features bateys of the indigenous native people, the Tiano.
....Guanica Dry Forest, with many native specimens of flora and native birds, and breathtaking views of both oceans.
....Cava Ventana - the famous portal with breathtaking views overlooking the fertile valleys of Utuado, a short hike off of Route 10.
....Rancho Marina Restaurant and Bar - ten mintues away, absolutely wonderful dining on Dos Bocas lake. Accessible by free motor launch or a short adventure drive through a coffee hacienda.
And we are always pleased to offer our guests advice on sites to visit! Thank you.
