Xtreme Zipline at the Mountain

And if you are looking for an adrenaline rush, in Orocovis in the center of the island, you can ride the longest zipline in the world. Yes, the longest. There was the recent debut of “The Monster” (El Monstruo), a guiness world record zip-line in the Toro Verde Park, a park full of adventure activities. “The Beast” (La Bestia) Zipline is full of hanging bridges and other physical activities in a very rustic and countryside setting.

En el mar la vida es más sabrosa” (Life At Sea Is More Enjoyable)

In the eastern part of the island, you find the islands of Vieques and Culebra. Visiting any of those islands will propel you into a peaceful and more relaxed lifestyle. In Culebra do not fail to visit the Flamenco beach, one of the globally renowned beaches. A real paradise!

Enjoy camping next to the beach under the starry sky. And if you want to get acquainted with marine life by snorkeling or diving, remember to visit Tamarindo Beach, also in Culebra. And in Vieques, you must not miss the bioluminescent bay, an awesome light show aboard a kayak.

The South, In Contrast With The North

 While the northern part of the island is known for its system of underground rivers and caves, such as the Cueva Ventana Cave and the Camuy River Cave, the southern part of the island offers a completely different scenario.  In the southwestern part of the island lies el Bosque Seco de Guánica (the Guánica Arid Forest). You can enjoy hiking through its different trails, and of course, a delightful swim in the beautiful beaches of the area.

One big, simple conclusion:

Puerto Rico has an endless amount of thrills and experiences to satisfy the adrenaline cravings of any adventurer!  Even if you live on the island, or visit frequently, take the time to plan out your next adventure, and be sure to let us know about it!
