Our Jibaro Adventure Series 

Nature Adventures

If you are guessing what does Jibaro mean? It refers to the outdoor adventurer, of the old-school era in Puerto Rico. The term Jibaro comes from the word Jiba = mountains, hence the person of the mountains, the countryman or woman. These incredible people are the farmers from the mountains of Puerto Rico and have an amazingly deep knowledge of nature. A lot of individuals misinterpret the name with people without education and not intelligent, completely wrong. The Jibaro can leave off the grid, which means they eat straight from the land, get water from the river, at night they use “un jacho” to get their light and sing many “Cantares” with poetic genius rich in fantasy, imagination, and wit. So pretty much they have a fabulous lifestyle nonetheless.
