This review has been a long time in coming, but the excitement of the trip remains fresh in my mind. To start off with, I communicated almost exclusively with Ruta Nativa via email prior to the trip. It was exceptionally easy to book, and despite the fact that I'm a solo-adventurer they were really accommodating in accepting my reservation for... More

We did the "Guaraguao Adventure 2" trip. It was an action-packed day filled with excitement and natural beauty. We started off by rappelling down a 100ft cliff, then floated/swam//waded down the river for about 4 hours. During the river trip, we passed inside of two enormous caves, had a quick lunch break, and got some rock-climbing and cliff-jumping in. We... More

I had heard so much about tubing through Río Tanamá and couldn't wait to do it. What an amazing experience! As a local, I recommend this to visitors and locals as well. There is so much beauty!!! We hiked through a beautiful forest and tubed down the river through caves and between canyons, every turn was exhilarating and revealed more... More

Waldemar Alcobas has created something special with Ruta Nativa. Even as a native of Puerto Rico, I was blown away by the beauty and variety of our natural heritage present at every twist and turn of this adventure. We jumped into a river that took us through caves and canyons surrounded by a lush forest and bamboo cathedrals. We ended... More

The entire experience, right from ease and accesibility of booking and communication prior to the adventure, was wonderful. The equipment provided was in perfect conditions and the guides were very professional and extremely knowledgable of the history, flora, and fauna of the place. The selected route through the river provides for the most majestic and diverse scenery; from caves to... More

Really there are very few words to describe it. I have had the pleasure of knowing Waldemar for a couple of years and finally having the priviledge of being guided through this adventure by him was epic! The beautifull Tanama River and lush green sourroundings is really something special and describes without word the essence of Puerto Rico. This experience... More
