I invite you to join me on this truly epic and awesome day of hiking and rappelling in the San Cristobal Canon in Puerto Rico, near Barranquitas, where we will hike and rappel on some awe-inspiring and jaw-dropping rock faces and cliffs, the vegetation of the rainforest surrounding us and the exquisite beauty of the waterfalls and waterways adding to the excitement.

San Cristobal Canyon is the deepest canyon in the Antilles Islands, is the only canyon in Puerto Rico, and is located in the central Puerto Rican mountain range of Central Cordillera. It is an increasingly popular tourist destination for outdoor activity enthusiasts owing to its relatively unspoiled nature.

We meet in the nearby small town of Aibonito, and from there we then make our way to the canyon trail and begin hiking.

Over the course of the hiking section of the trip you will be exposed to a wide variety of landscapes and sensational views, as we wind our way along the banks of the Rio Usabon, taking us past much native and exotic vegetation.

We then start to encounter several waterfalls, including ‘La Niebla’, one of the tallest in Puerto Rico at 240 feet, and many pretty rock pools.

It is then time to start rappelling our way around the canyon, first as we make our way down the slippery rocks next to the ‘Salto de la Cabra’ waterfall, and then when we reach ‘Charco Azul’ (Blue Pool), a rock pool located underneath a waterfall which gives us the option of either jumping or rappelling down to the river below.

After more swimming, climbing and jumping around caves, tunnels and rocks, we then finish by heading back to the starting point, exhausted yet thrilled at our action-packed day in such a tranquil environment.

This is the most fun-filled and adrenaline-pumping way to spend a day in Puerto Rico – book now to experience it all!
