Yunque Rain Forest

Yunque Rain Forest

This tropical rainforest lies completely within the boundaries of the El Yunque National Forest, part of the U.S. Forest Service. It's the only rainforest that belongs to the U.S. Forest Service. It consists of a small crescent shaped band that lies over the tops of the peaks of the forest, located near the eastern end of Puerto Rico. At the top of the rainforest lies a narrower band of the forest in which plant life is stunted due to a thinner layer of soil at higher elevations on the rocky mountain, as well as higher winds. Many well marked trails make it easy to explore.

Featured in many travel documentaries and shows, this is one of the "musts" of any visit to Puerto Rico. Visitors will travel through the new area of San Juan on their way to the rain forest. Once in El Yunque visitors will marvel at the tropical sights. They will make stops where they can get out and truly experience this natural paradise.

Sky Diving

SkyDiving

For the extreme adventurers, Xtreme Divers is less than 45 minutes away.

Visitors will experience the thrill of human flight! Something totally out of the ordinary. Jump from more than 10,500 feet from a Cessna 182 and/or 206! Freefall for more than 40 seconds at 120 miles per hour! Ride under the parachute for 5 to 6 minutes and enjoy the most scenic views of Arecibo, Puerto Rico.

Horse Back Riding

There are a few horseback riding stables nearby. Ride the beautiful trails and beaches of Puerto Rico on beautiful, well cared for horses. Kids or adults, experts or beginners, all will delight to ride the trails and beaches of this Caribbean Island.

HorseBack

Everyone who loves horses has always dreamed of riding on a beautiful beach or winding trails on a tropical island. Gentle with kids, fun for adults, these well kept and well trained horses will make your beach and trail rides a delight.

Caves

Cave

Casona Bella Vista is centrally located near numerous caves.

Cueva Ventana is located in Arecibo, close to the Arecibo/Utuado border, just off of Route 10. It is amazingly easy to get to once you know how. Actually, there are 2 caves here that one can enter — and they are right next to each other.

Beach

Beach

Just ten minutes away from the Mar Chiquita beach, Casona Bella Vista guests can be basking in the sun in no time at all.

About an hour away is Playa Higüero. Famous for its winter surf that lasts from November to April, making it a surfer's dream destination. The beach has become such a fixture among surfers that it's been nicknamed "Little Malibu." This world-class surfing beach, commonly experiences 16 foot breakers that will challenge any boarder.

This is Puerto Rico. There's nothing quite like sprawling out on a huge beach blanket, feeling the soft, warm sand beneath you. Tilt your head back and let the wind caress your hair, while you listen to the birds sing their song to an accompaniment of thundering surf. Throw in some margaritas or some fine island rum and have yourself a party!
