Adventure and the passion to find out about wonderful places from where I can take a good photograph and experience was what led me last Wednesday, February 18, 2015, to visit the town of Guánica, Puerto Rico. A town full of history, what your mind can and cannot imagine, and spectacular scenery!
The west of Puerto Rico is known for its beautiful beaches. In the town of Cabo Rojo we found a long coastline of white sand and crystal clear waters better known as Buyé. It is said that its name comes from a pirate known as Juan Bautista Buyé who lived near the beach.
The commercial adventures industry that we know today, specifically Canopy Tour, has a history that dates back to the early 20th century. Puerto Rico as well as other disciplines such as artists and scientists, also has an exquisite and above all professional history regarding the evolution of the industry that we know as Ecotourism or Adventure Tourism.
It was one of those days that we wanted to go out and venture aimlessly. We decided to visit the south of the island when someone said, “That's my tree,” the famous lone tree in Salinas. Perfect. Let’s go with him. That’s where our adventure began. After about 30 minutes going up the mountain, we encountered a spectacular view of the Cayey sierra with its famous tits and the beautiful view of the Caribbean ocean overlooking the Bay of Jobos and Caja de Muertos in the background.
