Overview
BODY RAFTING™ & CAVING MUTIADVENTURE An exclusive, off the beaten path, eco-experience through an untouched private forest with access to amazing caves, canyons and rivers fed by underground springs where you go spelunking through caverns, rock climbing and body rafting™.
Highlights
  • Access to a private nature reserve on ancestral homeland of the Taino Indians
  • All instruction and equipment for hiking, spelunking, and body rafting
  • Guided commentary on the forest plants and their traditional medicinal uses
  • Round-trip transportation from San Juan, if option is selected
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group at the private nature reserve, the ancestral homeland of the Taino Indians. This tour will give you access to the river and rain forest in that nature reserve, as well as guided commentary and instruction for all activities. Begin with a hike through the rain forest, during which your guide will teach you about the local flora and the ways in which the Taino people used all the plants. Then go spelunking through deep caves to see unusual rock formations and refuel with a picnic lunch. Then, your guide will show you how to float on your back and body raft, between the towering walls of canyons. Your life vest keeps you afloat; no swimming skills are needed. A short hike through the forest takes you back to your departure point at the nature reserve.
