The Combination Tour allows you to get the best of both the Taino Cave Tour and the River Tour. You begin by exploring the fruits and foliage the mountain has to offer, and continue on to the Taino Caves. After, you go to the head of the San Rafael River, where the natural spring comes out of the Earth, and you continue down the river until you meet the beach. This tour is of medium difficulty. Perfect for larger groups and nature enthusiasts. Be sure to bring comfortable shoes that can get wet.

Caleton Beach Tour

Duration: 2.5 Hours

Caleton is a private beach about 30 minutes South of San Rafael. We will part from the Mirador de San Rafael and head out. Upon arrival, we will hike down a valley to arrive to the beach where the swells are perfect for surfing, and the ocean is bluer than you’ve ever seen. We then scramble up cliff sides, and hike along the cliffs just above the ocean. This tour is also a more difficult tour, perfect for athletic types who love adrenaline. The actual tour is short, only lasting about 45 minutes, but the caves we come across will call for a break to enjoy the sound of the ocean hitting the rock below and take a few pictures.

San Rafael Coast Tour

Duration: 4.5 Hours

This is our longest and most difficult tour we offer. We being at the mirador de San Rafael and walk to a small path that brings us to the Western side of San Rafael Beach. We continue along the coast, crossing jagged rock, checking beautiful coral reefs, swimming holes, and the stunning view of the Caribbean Sea meeting the Earth. This tour is not for the faint of heart or those who are afraid of heights, but offers some of the most beautiful, pristine scenery our beach has to offer. We will look for crustaceans, crabs, octopi, and any other critters we can find. This would be a good day to rent snorkeling gear to take advantage of the location and check out the ocean life for yourself.
