Guided Rappel Adventure 

Big Tree Forest, Via Ferrata, River Trekking

And Big Waterfall Zip and Zen Guided Rappel 220'!

This adventure is the fun - almost - twin sister of the Big Waterfall Adventure. We felt the need to provide this exhilarating experience to a bigger audience like participants that are thrill seekers and love adventure but maybe think rappelling down a 150 feet Waterfall could be a little bit hard. That's why we came up with the idea of this 220' Guided Rappel dubbed the Zip and Zen (other clients have called it "El Carrito" or "Yagua"). In a short explanation, is an incline Zipline and we lower you down the Big Waterfall in a nice relaxing extreme way to the bottom of it. In that way, we take away all the hassle and technicality of handling ropes, feet placement dealing with the water, etc. into our hands, and you just turn on the Go-Pro and Have Fun!

 

Once at the top of the mountain, peace will is transformed into pure adrenaline, and we will get to enjoy an incredible combination of amazing scenic natural beauty and we will descents through multiple waterfalls, Big Waterfall Zip and Zen and Zen Guide Rappel

 

The first waterfalls, down 100 feet, call "Balconies Waterfall(in this level this rappel is a guided rappel – left side). Upon reaching the base, we will get to enjoy a majestic view of the countryside of Puerto Rico and will be heading for our the next challenge, experience going down "The Beard Waterfall" 220ft Zip and Zen Guide Rappel (in this level this rappel is a guided rappel – left side). Once you complete this experience that is completely out of this world and you get to catch your breath and find your inner peace, we will get to the next waterfall, "Romancing In The Stone" 80ft, at this level the rappel is the middle section of the waterfall). This waterfall is small but amazingly beautiful. At the end of all this adrenaline rush, we will walk down the river and jump into a natural pool and will get to relax surrounded by the beauty of the forest. Congratulations, you made it!

 

After a full day of adventure, you will get to enjoy a "delicioso" Puerto Rican "Jíbaro" home cooked meal served by a local family, surrounded by the beauty of the countryside PLUS you will get to see from the eating area the Big Waterfall that You!conquer!
