This caving adventure Puerto Rico is not for the faint hearted; you will soar over sinkholes, rappel 130 feet into a cave, mud slide and body raft into the crystal clear basins of caverns. You will encounter geological feats in immense stalagmites, stalactites and an abundance of fossilised sea creatures that existed millions of years ago.
Having met your professional guide at the meeting point in San Juan, you will take the short journey to the Angeles Cave, part of the infamous Rio Camuy caves system. As the only company with the rights to access this cave, we can assuredly promise a pocket of the Earth that has been left untouched by the human hand. Don your life jacket, helmet and harness and you are ready to go!
First on the list of adrenaline-inducing activities is a series of ziplines soaring over the vast Angeles sinkhole. As you enjoy the rush of excitement, you become part of the stunning backdrop; birds will tweet below you, mist is rising, the rolling rock formations are concealed by a bed of fern and moss and the Rio Camuy drops in and out of view as it meanders in and out of caves.
The ziplines you take are connected by sections of via ferrata (an italian term which literally translates as ‘iron path’, a protected climbing route, metal steps fixed into the rock). This technique was developed during World War 1 in order to access high places equipped with cables and ladders.
To end the zipline, you will be finally engulfed by the huge Angeles Cave as you rappel 130 feet into darkness.
Now inside the cave, there is a multitude of adventure that is awaiting discovery. Enjoy the buzz as you explore the caves’ large chambers, journeying along its subterranean streams and marvel at the magnificent geological formations that surround you; stalagmites, stalactites and ancient fossils line the inner walls of the cave.
If you dare, you will have the opportunity to mudslide, body raft and rock jump into the natural pools that lie beyond the intense darkness.
Climb up the exposed via ferrata ladder section to escape the sinkhole and reenter the real world as the warm sun hits your face. Take pride in having completed this impressive adventure and boast to family and friends back home that you have adventured deep into the Earth’s core.
