One of Puerto Rico's best kept secrets


Aibonito is a small town on the Central Mountain Range. It includes a good blend of beauty, history, natural resources and good food. We will visit some natural landmarks, historic buildings, beautiful waterfalls and outlooks with amazing views. You are required to have your own car.

Itinerary

We meet at the museum in town.
We walk around the town and experience it's history. Among other places, we'll see the church, the former tobaco factory (tabacalera), the public square (tallest in PR) and the "Pequena Fortaleza" (that used to house the Governor's office in 1887) and the museum.

We get back on our cars and make a short stop at the Asomante Trench, the last place where Puerto Rican troops resisted the US military during the invation in 1898. The views are amazing.

The Peak of the day will be the Canon de San Cristobal (San Cristobal Canyon), a narrow valley with 500' steep sides. Once we start walking on that natural reserve, you will forget all your problems. We will hike down to see "La Niebla" Falls, that is 170 feet high.

If you get hungry, we can stop in a good restaurant (cost of food not included). Aibonito is the poultry capital of Puerto Rico.

To finish the day with a good vibe, you can go to the "Coamo Hot Springs", that is about 25 minutes away.
