The Tanamá River Adventures program is a family business, that combines educational programs with many different River activities, such as Organic Farming, Eco-Tours, and different Healing techniques. We are located in the central western Mountainous region of Puerto Rico in the town of Utuado. Our family have been in this path for over a decade, dedicating our lives to protect, preserve and share our Native-Indigenous Culture, and please do not compare us with other tour companies, our family live with an ecological-counsciosness, making every-day a Living Ceremony. Our responsability with the Natural environment haved come to be one of Our passions in life. Our family lives in a self-sufficient Mountain house, using solar-powered energy, catching rain water and using Natural spring waters to feed our family. We plant some of the food that we consume, in an Organic way.
Our house was built by our own hands, in a sustainable way, using many different natural resources such as wooden trees, bamboo, rocks, clay, and more. We love to make things happen in a harmony way with the natural environment, that’s why we are hard workers, cause we Love what we do.
