Places To Visit In Puerto Rico

Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park

Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park
February 27th, 2015

A typical ecological park is a nice enough place to visit, but the truth is, there’s nothing really memorable about most of them. For seasoned tourists, the run-of-the-mill ecological park is nothing more than a tourist trap filled with overhyped natural vistas. But when it comes to Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park, it’s anything but “typical” and “run-of-the-mill.”

You see, Toro Verde isn’t just about the sights. It’s about how you see them. And the park allows you to see the sights while you’re attached to a zip line high up in the air. In fact, Toro Verde is so committed to zip lining that it has more cable for this purpose than any other park in the whole wide world.

So here are the adventures you can look forward to:

Zipline

You need to be at least 4 feet tall and weigh no more than 300 pounds to be able to try this activity. The zipline ride costs $85, and you can buy a ticket online. There are 8 pairs of wires to try out, walking from one “arrival” platform to the next “departure” platform. You can be driven up so you can cut down on the walking, and if you’re starting to become afraid of heights you can be driven down as well.




La Bestia

This cable ride which goes down the mountain will have you in a Superman flying position, going down a cable that’s 4,745 feet long. That’s 1 and a half kilometers of exhilaration, as you reach speeds of 60 mph (96 kph). You’ll need to be at least 4 feet tall, and weigh at least 110 pounds but not more than 300 pounds. This “ride” costs $65.

Toro Salvaje

This tour will bring out the Indiana Jones in you, as you go to the first of 5 flimsy-looking suspension bridges strapped in a cable until you rappel 230 feet to the rain forest below. You’ll need to be 5 feet tall, at least 12 years old, and weigh 250 pounds at the most, and it will cost you $100.

Sal is puedes

This time you need to be at 15 years old, not shorter than 5 feet and weigh 250 pounds at the most. This tour is a combo of cable rides and rappelling, and it is really important that you’re in excellent physical shape if you want to try it. It will also cost you $100.

Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park is in Orocovis, Puerto Rico, and it’s one of the main attractions in the area. Driving from San Juan, you take Route 22 and then go left at the traffic light so you’re on Route 137 (Tony Laureano Expressway) heading to exit #42 towards Morovis. Count the traffic lights, and at the fifth one you turn right to Route 155. That should take you all the way to Orocovis at the kilometer 32.9 mark.

Just make sure all minors are accompanied by a parent or a guardian. And for the best experience, you may want to make sure beforehand that the guide assigned to you is easy to talk to. You can also sign up for ride packages so you can enjoy special discounts. For example, a Zipline and La Bestia combo costs only $125 instead of $150.
