Places To Visit In Puerto Rico

Las Cascadas Water Park

Las Cascadas Water Park
September 24th, 2014

The beaches and waters surrounding Puerto Rico may be great places for swimming and diving, but there’s something to be said about the waters within Puerto Rico. And that’s very obvious once you visit the Las Cascadas Water Park in Aguadilla. This isn’t just the biggest water theme park in Puerto Rico—it’s the biggest in the entire Caribbean.
 
It has just been recently renovated, so that means there’s a lot of fun to be had. It also means that the facilities are new and safe, and there’s no second-rate vibe to mar the experience.
 
There are about ten rides here, and each one provides a unique ride that you won’t forget. Most of the adults go for Rio Loco, and it’s very aptly-named. Here you ride solo on a raft as it basically drops from the side of a mountain and you navigate through the rapids. Here’s a video by the good people at PuertoRicoDayTrips.com that shows you a little bit of the park.




For those who have a taste for adventure and a need for speed, there’s also the Chorreras Rapidas or Speed Slides, along with Túnel Acuático (Water Tunnel) which offers single or two-person tube slides in the dark.
 
There’s El Torbellino (the Twister) and El Laberinto (The Maze) if you’re eager for a really crazy slide. The Serpiente Marina features snakelike slides, and the Piscina de Actividades offers slides and even zip lines. For many of these slides, you’d have to be at least 4 feet tall.
 
For kids, there’s always the Piscina de Niños, while the Piscina de Olas which mimics beach waves is also a top favorite. For parents who need a break, there’s the Rio Tropical Pasivo that can help soothe frazzled nerves.
 
There may be some long lines for some rides, but you don’t really have to wait for long. The lines go forward quickly, so it’s not like other theme parks where the wait can last for as long as two hours.
 
You can’t bring food inside the park, but don’t worry, you won’t go hungry here. Most of the food that kids and adults would want are available: hotdogs, pizza, fried chicken with potatoes, burgers, sandwiches, nachos, and ice cream. There are of course shower rooms and toilets, along with tables and chairs.
 
Adults can get in for $25 and there’s a $2 discount for children ages 4 to 12. Seniors who are 54 years old or older can get in for $13, and the handicapped only pay $12. Senior citizens who are at least 74 years old can get inside for free, as can children age 3 and younger.
 
The park is open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm from May to August, but during September through February it may only be open during the weekends. Call first before you go to make sure they’re open. Sometimes it’s not open in October and November.
 
But when it’s open, it’s a guaranteed good time for the whole family, and kids will definitely love it here.
