Enjoy special access with an expert guide to protected caves located on private land that most people don’t get to see. You will then journey underground through a series of dark limestone caves that vary in shape and size. Explore like a scientist as you come upon petroglyphs and creatures like spiders, bats, snakes and crustaceans. Not for the squeamish, this small-group tour limited to 12 adventure seekers and includes a restaurant lunch and round-trip hotel transport from San Juan.
Your day begins with hotel pick up in San Juan. After that, you travel with your knowledgeable guide to Las Cabachuelas de Morovis, a network of approx. 60 caves and shelters located in the heart of Puerto Rico’s northern region of karst limestone peaks.
During your 7-hour tour you’ll hike to four caves, located on private land in a subtropical forest that’s designated as a nature reserve. Your in-the-know guide has made special arrangements with the landowners to allow your small group access to these sites. After a safety briefing, don your gear — including a helmet, headlamp, small backpack, and kneepads and gloves — and set off.
In Angel Cave, your guide describes how the caves were formed over millions of years, identifies unique formations and points out petroglyphs created by the Tainos — possible descendants of the Arcaicos tribes — who once inhabited these limestone shelters.
The Cabachuelas caves are also home to a dizzying array of ecosystems. Learn about the plant life and insects you pass by during your forest walks. In the caves of Lizard and Buruquenas, expect to encounter many creatures in the dark: spiders, crickets, bats, snakes, toads and a number of crustaceans.
We then hike uphill and from inside 3 Floor Cave, look out an opening and capture beautiful views of the valley and forest floor.
Around midday, climb back aboard the minivan and head to a local restaurant for hearty Puerto Rican fare, including chicken, rice, beans, yucca and sweet plantains.
Your appetite for wondrous sights and delicious food satisfied, enjoy the ride back to your San Juan hotel, with a surprise souvenir in hand.
