“Wonderful Guide, Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Our group of 6 spent a night in the large room with 3 double sized bunks and had a restful night, in spite of the roosters sounding off at 1:30am and throughout the night. We couldn't have asked for a better guide on the Tanama River than Roberto himself, who was amazingly knowledgeable of the local history, wildlife, fauna, and edible plants. Our hike and float, which took approximately 4 hours, was relatively easy with a float through a magnificient rock formation. While they never bothered us, if you have a fear of bats, this trip is not for you. Lunch following the trip was soooo good, consisting of a local style of marinated chicken, with the obligitory beans and rice cooked to perfection.
The accomodations are comfortable but truly rustic, some may even call them nearing primitive, but this was overall a great experience which we'd recommend to anyone seeking a wilderness adventure. Roberto is exceptionally helpful and patient in assisting with directions, at all hours, and is a gracious host. Thank you for a memorable experience.

“TANAMA CAVE TUBING”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

An unforgettable experience, unique and spectacular! The river tour Tanamá is beautiful. To the people who love having direct contact with nature, this is the best place you could go to visit and enjoy. It is beautiful and the hospitality is A +. The director Bonilla always kept communication to guide us to the place. Enjoy a spectacular day with nature, walk by huge bamboo forests, trees, land, river and the best part is stoping by a cave under the river in tubes (or floating), and go go with the current, that part is very relaxing. Cave Tubing Tanamá the best tour we've done in my beautiful Puerto Rico! I encourage you to discover how beautiful Puerto Rico is!

Reservations are required, do not pay in advance, paid on the spot to Tanamá Cave tubing. Only cash accepted, no vouchers or credit cards. The phone call is 787-452-8538, Mr. Bonilla's very cordially attend!

“In Contact with Nature”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Our day started at 5:30 am with a wake up call by our resident rooster. Our tour guides were Flama (flame) and Prisma ( prism), two local, nature loving girls, with their Taino, native given names. We got in the back of a pick up truck and drove to the staring point. Our trek took us well into the forest, up and down the trail, on our way to the mouth of the cave. We crossed the river through a passage under the rock using truck inner tubes as flotation device.
The passage under the rock was very peaceful, connecting with nature. One of the girls played a flute with Taino melodies. The whole experience was unique. We crossed the tunnel to an open space and took a break. You can jump from a higher rock to the water if you dare. Then we crossed the elevated bridge and hiked a long trek back. We got shuttle back to the camp site and had a delicious lunch which was included.

Make sure you ask for all the details. Mr. Bonilla and the tour guide girls are very flexible and will answer all questions you have. They accept cash only. The accommodations are simple, not luxurious. Great to connect with nature.
