Welcome to Central Mountains

The whole thing is strung together by the Ruta Panorámica, a vine-covered ribbon of potholed blacktop that rolls like a roller coaster along the island’s rugged spine. It meanders through ragged agricultural towns, humid patches of jungle and past cliff-edge vistas where birds of prey glide in lazy circles. Between fog-covered valleys and the sharp scent of fresh-roasted coffee beans, visitors catch a whiff of the endangered cultural essence of Puerto Rico.

For those requiring more definitive reasons to visit, they are manifold: the island's highest peaks, remotest hiking and best coffee haciendas – plus one of the world's most thrilling adventure parks near Barranquitas.

Gems of the North Beach Experience (3 beaches)

ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Playa Mar Chiquita, Manati, Puerto RicoLegend tells the name comes from the legend of a Puerto Rican woman, very cheerful and attractive, who always walked along the shore of a large limestone rock.One day, as a result of an earthquake, she sliped and fell into the sea. Suddenly, on the verge of losing hope to save herself, one of the stones broke in half and the torrent of water that passed between the stones dragged her, leaving her on the sand and "miraculously saving her". It is said that this woman was called Fini-Ana and that thanks to that miracle Mar Chiquita was formed, providing her waters in which she could then swim without any danger. Before visiting you should know that there are areas where there is no sun protection, that is, that you must carry some umbrella or canopy because believe me ... you're going to burn without it! Duration: 2 hoursStop At: Poza de las Mujeres, Manati, Puerto RicoIt's name is due to the fact that in the years 1600 to 1700, when Puerto Rico was a colony of Spain, only women of high society bathed in it. This was a private sector until the year 1900 when it became open to the general public. If you ask where the men bathed, the answer is: on the other side.
