La Marquesa Canopy Tour
The first eco friendly activity of this nature is available in the natural surroundings of Guaynabo, in Marquesa Forest Park; only a 20 minutes drive from the capital San Juan. Visitors can soar high above the trees of this preserved tropical rainforest, assisted by professional adventure guides, and supported by adequate equipment that ensures the safety of all adrenaline junkies. A series of cables and zip lines connect each tree ranging in height from 10 to 70 feet above the forest floor. The activity lasts approximately 2 hours and is suitable for anyone between the ages of 5 and 95.
The adventure is ideal for a family day trip, or groups looking to have an exciting experience that is a contrast from the relaxation of the beach. The canopy tour is not only enthralling but also educates visitors on the importance of the rainforest, and the efforts that are being made to protect it from illegal activities. The opportunity to observe unique native wildlife is achievable; abundant species include the friendly Parrot, the red tailed hawk, and the coqui frog. An observation tower is also present for those who want to view the rainforest from a static position.
