What To Expect

We will head northwest San Juan to the heart of the mountains driving through limestone formations. You will notice the change in the island’s geology, and explore a beautiful, barely known, nature spot. There you will river trek, work out climbing up rocks, and enjoy a secluded water pool protected by rock walls. You will be amazed as you swim by a hidden canyon to a magnificent waterfall. It is truly a spectacular place, full of peace and surrounded by greenery.

After this fantastic exploration, the next stop is a stunning canyon made of giant volcanic rocks carved by the passing river, and an impressive mountain at a distance acting as the custodian of this incredible place. Here you will learn about the history, beliefs, and legacy of our natives, the Tainos, and also why this area was sacred to them. Rock boulder and river trek as we explore dozens of petroglyphs carved on the rocks centuries ago, and let your imagination run wild with all the possible symbolisms. There is something mystical about this place; whether it is the feeling of becoming one with nature, the uniqueness of the scenery or the kindness of the neighbors. Utuado will, for sure, become one of your favorite places in Puerto Rico.

A 10 of 10 unique custom tour!

Utado canyon is a breathtaking natural marvel! This tour is not offered by many other tour companies. Yamille, the owner and operator of Puerto Rico as a local not only provides a very unique tour, but also provides excellent customer service with a personal touch. Overall value, an adrenaline packed day, and beautiful pictures are the norm with Yamille. This was not our first tour with Yamille, but it was our third and we highly recommend her for a truly magical experience!
AMAZING Experience!!

This tour was an AMAZING experience! Yamile is an incredible tour guide that brings a tremendous amount of local knowledge, fun, and energy to the experience. I have visited National Parks all over the USA, as well as tours, and this experience ranks in my top 5. Canon Blanco is a beautiful area that contains hiking and swimming hole experiences that are second to none. However, it's not a place to visit without an experienced guide. Yamile took us to places (i.e. waterfalls, petroglyphs, etc.) that we would never have safely found ourselves. The water during our experience was a little murky and slightly rough after 2-3 days of rain but we felt safe having a guide that knows the terrain and the lay of the land. We were able to focus on having a good time knowing that Yamile had our backs all the time.
Yamile is a travel professional that focuses on every detail (i.e. safe ride, super clean van, safety, fun, travel tips). You cannot go wrong with this tour. I look forward to trying other adventures with this company when we return.

Yamile was amazing! She is a great guide/person/ and host. She made sure everyone had a fun time and was awesome with taking pictures.

I could not recommend her enough. If you are booking a tour, you have to go with her!

The canyon was beautiful and the food delicious.
