What you'll do

Immerse yourself into a magical experience at the treetops of the Luquillo Rainforest El Yunque. We will be climbing an exotic centenary ficus tree named Jagüey Colorado. With my help as an experienced arbonaut, you’ll get up in the tree and experience the forest like never before. Using the same professional equipment that arborists and scientists use when they ascend into the canopies, I will teach you everything you need to know to get in the saddle and headed toward the treetop. Once you’re at a height that’s comfortable for you, you’ll be free to swing, walk the branches, explore around or just hang out in the canopy hammocks. It’s your adventure!
Recreational tree climbing is safe, unique, and most importantly, FUN. In its over 30 years as an organized activity, more than a million people worldwide have taken part. Now it’s your turn!
