Climb trees, hike, rappel, or simply explore caves, unique experiences which gets your adrenaline pumping. You float into the forest, swing from tree tops, descend past trees, get back to ancient arboreal roots at an adventure site called Unique Outdoor Experience where travelling through the treetops is the way to go. You climb over 100 feet into the canopy of the forest for a truly awesome view while swinging along Tarzan style.
Zip lines, tension bridges, rope work and rappelling were used by forest ecologists and scientists to study plant and wildlife up in the tree tops or canopy. For this reason a lot of the activities at the Unique Outdoor Experience are called canopy tours. This has now become extreme sport and a rage throughout the world.
At the demonstration site, the guides explain how the system works. They teach you safety instructions and how to gear up and zip line. There are 4 guides who spread out onto different platforms. This allows you to zip quickly from one platform to the next where a guide will clip you to the next zip line. There are several bridges, a hanging bridge, and finally as rappel.
The cave adventure can be scary and not meant for the weak hearted. The task begins with crawling into the cave in water waist deep, followed by rappelling in the river inside the cave. As you enter the cave you hear squeaking noise. The cave is home to a strong colony of bats. They stir themselves as they sense dusk descending and begin to prepare to leave the cave to feed on flying insects. The path continues to wind deeper into the blackness, until suddenly a green oasis appears in the distance. A large waterfall tumbled into an interior pond. The pond is like a bliss pool and you can jump from the waterfall into this varnish clear water.
The trips are carefully planned with emphasis in Puerto Rican culture, legacy, education and ecotourism. The team work with spirit, adventure, and leadership skills.
