Carabali Rainforest Park

January 20th, 2015

We don’t know about you but the highlight of a vacation in Puerto Rico is definitely exploring the Carabali Rainforest Park on horseback. This Puerto Rican tradition, which dates back to the 1500s, gives you the chance to take in the beautiful sights in and around the park in a unique, educational, and fun way.

Explore 600 acres of rainforest on horseback in a one- or two-hour tour, with over 70 horses to choose from and several types of horseback rides: forest trails, through fields, and on the beach. You can stop along the way within your chosen tour hour for a picnic lunch or a swim. Along jaunts around the hacienda and beach rides, there are zip lines as well as mountain bike tours along rainforest trails.




Horseback Riding and ATV Tours

The two-hour tour (reservation is required) – scheduled at 9:30 AM, 12:30 PM, and 2:30 PM — costs $70 for adults and $50 for kids who are three to 11 years of age while the one-hour tour (no reservation required) – which is offered the whole day – costs $35 for adults and $25 for kids. Additionally, the limit for the rider’s weight is 250 pounds.

If equines are not exactly your favorite means of tourist transport, Carabali Rainforest Park, formerly known as Hacienda Carabali, offers All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) and go carts on which you can explore the area. FYI, you have to sign an insurance waiver, wear a helmet, and listen to instructions on how to drive your chosen ATV (there are 22 of them). You are also provided with a tour guide.

Ride a Go Kart to Explore the Rainforest

There’s another option you can take. If go karts are more your to your liking, the Carabali Rainforest Park has them, too. You can traverse the place at your own speed on a track that measures a thousand square feet on a single or double go kart. The minimum height required for kids is 54 inches and must have a parent or guardian with them.

Don’t worry about getting all hot and sweaty while you explore the rainforest because there are male and female showers/changing rooms, and bathrooms available at the office check-in areas. And if you get hungry, there’s the Bamboo Lounge and Carabali Bar & Grill where you can enjoy Puerto Rican cuisine, Caribbean music, and Latin hospitality.

Some Reminders

The Carabali Rainforest Park is a gated community, part of the hacienda owned by the Diaz family, so you can be assured of security while exploring the gorgeous scenery and unspoiled land. Take a rest from all that riding and relax along the cool banks of the Mameyes River or swim to cool off. Don’t forget your essentials such as sun block, sunglasses, bottled water, etc.

Although riders of all levels are welcome, pregnant women are not allowed to engage in any riding activity for obvious reasons. Additionally, visitors with certain medical conditions – asthma, epilepsy, heart and respiratory issues, existing injuries (shoulder, neck, knees, and back) – are advised to refrain from selecting tours classified as strenuous.

A Unique and Unforgettable Experience

There several accommodations near the Carabali Rainforest Park which are affordable and ideal for families. The Rainforest & Ocean View Inn on the grounds of Hacienda Carabali is located on the summit of one of the El Yunque Rainforest’s lowlands with a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean. It provides access to golf courses, beaches, and restaurants for after-riding relaxation.

It may not be Marlboro Country, but Carabali Rainforest Park is a unique and unforgettable experience to anyone who visits.
