Puerto Rico has a little bit of something for everyone…

If the weather’s closing in and you dream of an extreme weekend in better climes, then look no further than the archipelago of Puerto Rico in the Caribbean with its great weather, great people, and a wide variety of extreme sports and extreme sports’ venues for you to enjoy… (Originalskateboards)

… including the zipline canopy eco-adventure from San Juan. Imagine soaring through the tree-tops, 70ft off the ground, zipping through the air from one aerial landing to the next and taking you through every section of the rainforest from ground level to tree-top. All-in-all there are 9 different zipline ropes you can test out, 1 exciting suspension bridge, 2 rappel stations, 5 ground platforms and 10 aerial suspending platforms!

This is not the only zipline in Puerto Rico.

PR is also home to the Rio Camuy Caverns through which the third largest underground river in the world runs and where there is also the most enormous sinkhole. This incredible 268-acre park is the site of the great subterranean caverns carved out by the Camuy River over one million years ago.  Rio Camuy Cave Park is the third-largest cave system in the world. Sixteen entrances have been found and 11 kilometers (7 miles) of passages explored so far. One special attraction is the Cueva Clara, which measures 695 ft (210m) in length and 170 ft high (52m). A tram shuttles you across to a platform overlooking the 400 ft deep Tres Pueblos Sinkhole.  Another attraction is the Spiral Sinkhole and Cave. You can walk the 205 steps down into the sinkhole, but the cave itself is off limits to all but experienced spelunkers (aventuraspr).

There’s nothing wrong with dreaming, but even better if you carry it through to a conclusion!

Have a great weekend and if you’re planning on going to the Freeze Festival at Battersea Power Station this weekend then I hope you have a super cool time!
