Inauguran el parque Ecológico Toro Verde en Orocovis

Ofrece el salto aéreo por cable más largo en las Américas


Por Aura N. Alfaro / aalfaro@elnuevodia.com

Hoy quedó oficialmente abierto el parque ecológico Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park, en el barrio Gato, en Orocovis, cuya primera fase se construyó con una inversión de $5.8 millones.

El parque tiene el tramo de salto áereo más largo del continente americano, con 14 kilómetros, y el segundo más grande del mundo, señaló el representante de Toro Verde, Jorge Jorge Flores, en conferencia de prensa en las instalaciones.

Durante la actividad, en la cual participó el gobernador, Luis Fortuño, varias personas tuvieron la oportunidad de larzarse al vacío en el salto por cable conocido como "La Bestia".

Toro Verde tambien cuenta con varios caminos de ciclismo, entre estos un circuito de ciclismo de categoría triple A, desarrollado por Marla Strip, varias veces campeona del deporte y entrenadora del equipo de Estados Unidos.

Jorge Flores explicó que el parque lleva el nombre de Toro porque es el "hermano menor" del cercano cerro Toro Negro, y Verde por ser ecológico.

En esta primera fase tiene cerca de 50 empleados, entre ellos varios guías.

La segunda fase consistirá de un hotel con 120 habitaciones tipo “camping”, a una inversión de $15 millones, reveló Jorge Flores.

El parque abre todos los días de 8:00 a.m. a 5:00 p.m., y ofrece una variedad de recorridos guiados.

Aventura ecológica en las montañas de Orocovis
El zip linedel parque es el más largo del hemisferio y segundo más largo del mundo. (Primera Hora / Vanessa Serra Díaz)
martes, 25 de mayo de 2010
Mariana Cobián / Primera Hora

Para los que les gusta la adrenalina, la aventura y la naturaleza, ahora podrán disfrutar de todo esto y más en Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park.

Ayer el gobernador Luis Fortuño participó de la inauguración de este parque, ubicado en el barrio Gato de Orocovis.

En medio del verdor de las montañas se abrió este proyecto ecoturístico que busca impulsar la economía de la montaña creando empleos y atrayendo al turismo.

El mismo tiene el zip line más largo del hemisferio y segundo más largo del mundo llamado Tour La Bestia, en el que las personas van boca abajo, como si estuviesen volando. También cuenta con aventuras de rappeling y escalamiento, caminatas con puentes colgantes y un circuito de mountain bike.

El gestor del parque ecoturístico, Jorge Flores, dijo que el alcalde Jesús “Gardy” Colón Berlingeri se comunicó con él con la idea de hacer un proyecto ecoturístico que ayudara a crear empleos.

El Municipio ayudó con la identificación del terreno privado que compró la compañía y con la gestión de los permisos, y en año y medio abrieron sus puertas, luego de contar con asesoría de expertos de Costa Rica.

El mismo fue posible con un préstamo de $2.6 millones del Banco de Desarrollo Económico. El costo total de la inversión privada fue de $5.8 millones.

Ha generado 45 empleos directos y 21 indirectos.

“Este proyecto presenta la visión de un alcalde queriendo transformar la economía de la zona montañosa con distintas alternativas... Es un ejemplo de cómo lograr desarrollar un balance de nuestra economía y turismo”, manifestó Fortuño.


Jorge Flores adelantó que hay una segunda fase del proyecto con la construcción de un hotel ecoturístico “revolucionario” a un costo de $15 millones. El mismo contará con 120 habitaciones, de las cuales la mayoría serán casetas de campaña con hamacas y baños. También tendrá piscinas como ríos con agua calentada por baterías solares.

El parque está abierto diariamente de 8:00 de la mañana a 5:00 de la tarde. Para más información, www.toroverdepr.com o (787) 867-6606.

Yo estuve allí el domingo y estuvo brutal!!! Fui al tour de canopy que son 8 cables distintos. Le llaman canopy pero no es la mejor forma de describirlo porque no entre los arboles ni cerca de ellos sino bastante alto por encima del bosque. Uno de los cables está a más de 600 pies del suelo.

ToroVerde park delivers in adventure in Puerto Rico

by Kraig Becker (RSS feed) on Jul 22nd 2010 at 8:00AM
Thrill seekers who are looking to take a break from all that sun and surf while visiting Puerto Rico now have a new option to add a little excitement to their vacation. The recently opened ToroVerde Adventure Park is ready to give them the jolt of adrenaline that they're looking for, offering up opportunities to rock climb, mountain bike, and choose from an array of zip line tours.

Located near Orocovis, not far from San Juan, the adventure park is a jungle playground with plenty to do both on the ground and over it. With eight different ziplines to choose from, each with varying heights, lengths, and speeds, you're sure to find a route that works for you. So if you're looking for a leisurely glide through the treetops, you might want to try the "Red Tail Hawk Flight" line, but if you want to jump start your heart, go with the "Flight of the Phoenix" instead. But for the ultimate zip line experience, try the Beast Tour, which straps you to a special harness, and sends you sailing for more than 4700 feet through the jungle canopy.

If the zip lines aren't enough to hold your interest however, you can take one of ToroVerde's special tours. For instance, the Wild Bull or the Escape If You Can tours combine zipping with rappelling, hiking, and rock climbing to create an adventurous mix that will carry you deep into the jungle and up rugged mountain paths.

When you're done exploring on foot, you can visit the ToroVerde's signature mountain bike park, and enjoy some two wheeled fun as well. The single-track course was designed by professional mountain bike rider Marla Streb, and has been built to cater to every rider's needs, whether they are a beginner or an expert. The eight mile ride has challenging climbs and heart pounding drops, and delivers some great views of the surrounding area along the way.

Billed as an "ecotouristic" park, ToroVerde looks to be a great mix of tropical scenery and extreme sports. For a day filled with adventure, take a break from the beach and go play in the jungle instead.

Toro Verde sets the standard for mountain tourism in Puerto Rico
By CB Online Staff
cbnews@caribbeanbusinesspr.com


In its efforts to boost tourist traffic in the mountainous region of the island, the Puerto Rico Tourism Co. (PRTC) need look no further for a working model than Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park in Orocovis.
The park is the hands-down standard-setter with 50,000 visitors in its first year of operation, according to an Inter News Service report.

At a press conference Wednesday at PRTC headquarters in Old San Juan, PRTC Director Mario González Lafuente joined Orocovis Mayor Jesús Colón, who explained how the economy of his municipality has improved significantly since he started concentrating on tourism efforts, especially the sport of “ziplining,” a central component of Toro Verde’s allure.

The mayor said Labor Department estimates show the municipality’s unemployment rate has dropped from 20 percent to 15 percent in the past year. He added that Orocovis has gone from budget deficits to having a surplus.

This is in large part due to the opening of new restaurants and the ecotourism traffic the adventure park has produced.

In the winter season, 80 percent of these visitors are from the mainland U.S. and abroad, while in the summer months park clientele is a mix of foreign and local visitors.

“Tourists are looking for adventure and nature, and they find both at this park, where Puerto Rico competes with Costa Rica, a Central American country where tourism centers on its mountainous region and adventure sports,” Colón said.

Toro Verde is already the largest aerial park in the western hemisphere and owns the longest cable in the Americas. Expansion plans include the addition of hotel and resort accommodations.

As part of the effort to boost tourist traffic in the central part of the island, the PRTC launched a new campaign focused on activities in the mountain region.

In addition, the agency has endorsed five hostels, providing support through promotion and marketing. There are plans for three more hostels in the next few years.

“Our tourism isn’t limited to the metropolitan area,” González Lafuente said.

Puerto Rico’s mountainous region comprises the towns of Aguas Buenas, Cidra, Cayey, Comerío, Aibonito, Naranjito, Barranquitas, Corozal, Orocovis, Morovis, Ciales, Jayuya, Florida, Utuado, Adjuntas and Lares.

Hoy aprendi una palabra nueva en español jajajaja.

Los 258 metros de la tirolina más alta del mundo, un reto para atrevidos

EFE
Creada: Apr 28, 2012 at 11:12 AM ADT
Actualizada: Apr 28, 2012 at 11:12 AM ADT
San Juan, EFE (EFE).- Los 258 metros de la tirolina más alta del mundo, que se encuentra en las montañas de Puerto Rico, desafían a los más atrevidos que viajan al Caribe y se han convertido en un polo de atracción para amantes del turismo de aventura y naturaleza en la región.
'La bestia' es también, con su más de un kilómetro y medio de longitud, la tercera tirolina más larga del planeta y la principal atracción de Toroverde, un complejo de ocio desarrollado por tres empresarios de Costa Rica, Nicaragua y Estados Unidos y situado en la localidad de Orocovis.
Toroverde, que en temporada alta recibe a cerca de doscientos visitantes por día, está a punto de cumplir dos años de actividad.
Su responsable de comunicación, Sylvia Rivera, explicó a Efe que el proyecto es una buena muestra de negocio ecoturístico que, con la atracción de 'La bestia', se ha convertido en parada obligada para quienes viajan al Caribe en busca de retos de aventura.
"Se trata de la tirolina más alta del mundo", recuerda sobre una atracción que no todos son capaces de completar: casi todos los días alguno de sus visitante desiste en el último instante de lanzarse a "tumba abierta" sobre sus 250 metros de profundidad.
Quienes se acercan hasta las montañas de Orocovis no necesitan ser expertos deportistas o aventureros, ya que el único requisito es el de medir más 1,20 metros de altura y no exceder los 136 kilos de peso.
Las tirolinas son la atracción más espectacular de un parque que, sin embargo, también cuenta con diversos puentes colgantes, un rapel de caída libre y caminatas por espectaculares paisajes tropicales, con saltos de agua y una exhuberante vegetación caribeña a la que contribuyen las lluvias que caen sobre la zona casi todas las tardes.
La belleza del paisaje hace que además de los saltos en tirolina el espacio sea muy visitado para otras actividades relacionadas con la naturaleza como paseos en bicicleta de montaña y las marchas a pie.
Toroverde ha supuesto para el deprimido interior de Puerto Rico una forma de dinamizar una zona con pocas expectativas económicas.
El proyecto empresarial supuso una inversión de casi 6 millones de dólares, de los que 2,5 fueron aportados a través de un crédito del Banco de Desarrollo Económico de Puerto Rico.
La empresa emplea a unas 50 personas, incluidos 30 guías. Está previsto el próximo inicio de las obras de construcción de un hotel ecoturístico, con una inversión cercana a 15 millones de dólares
El acceso a las montañas de Orocovis no es complicado y desde la zona costera de San Juan se puede acceder en poco más de una hora de trayecto.

Thrilling Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park

Posted on Dec 19th, 2010 by Gwenn • Updated on Aug 11th, 2012
Category: En español, Nature, Porta Cordillera (Central), Tour

If you are looking for some extreme adventure on vacation, we found another great place for you — Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park in Orocovis. Does zip lining — either regular (sitting) or laying facedown, manuevering across suspended bridges, climbing up & rappeling down rock walls, and mountain biking sound exciting enough for you?

We did a half day tour of this park and had a blast. Not only was the scenery great, but they make the adventures safe and easy to enjoy.

ABOUT THE PARK
Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park is a large (316 acres) and relatively new ecotourism park, having opened in mid-2010. They designed this park with the best and newest adventure sports. And, they made the courses easy to get to and still manage to keep you in the middle of the beautiful landscape.


They offer five different activities that you can choose from — the Canopy Tour, the Beast, the Wild Bull, Escape If You Can and Mountain Biking. I have been told that you need a couple days to complete them all. But of course, they offer half day and full day packages also.

These tours each have restrictions (height, weight, and age limits), but, for the most part, there is just about something for everyone in the family.

One really nice feature is they drive you to the adventures. Not having a long uphill hike to the starting point makes it much easier for many people who have some issues walking long distances, but who want to experience these adventures. There is some short walking between some of the adventure platforms, but that’s inevitable.

ABOUT OUR VISIT TO THE PARK
We met up with a couple who had never ziplined before and ended up doing a customized mini-course, with some ziplines, some hanging bridges and a rappel. The other couple was afraid of heights, but they did great despite that. It was great to see people stepping outside their comfort zone and trying something thrilling! I am sure they will talk about their experience for many months. We had 2 guides with our tour — one was bilingual, and the other was not.

CANOPY TOUR — ZIPLINES
Here is some basic info for those of you who have never gone ziplining before. You wear a harness that goes around each leg and your lower body. It has all sorts of pulleys and carabiners hooked to it that they then use to hook you to the cables. Of course, they use redundant, 2-cable lines here, that’s pretty much the safety standard in the industry. You are equipped with helmet and gloves (with special leather hand brake pad). They clip you to the lines, you step off the platform and away you go — flying through the air.


They have 8 zip lines in this tour. It might not sound like a lot, but these zip lines go across this huge valley, so they are high up and long.

The zip lines in this course range from 800 feet to 2526 feet long. That is almost a ½ mile long! And the view you get at 600 feet off the ground is breath-taking — or maybe your breath will be taken away by being that far off the ground!

One great feature was a braking system. Besides letting you manage your own braking with your hand if you wanted, they had a braking system at the end of the line, so there was no chance of crashing into the platform at the other end.

This course takes about 2 to 3 hours to complete, depending on the size of the group. This tour is offered twice a day, once at 8am and again at 1pm. This course has a 300-pound weight limit.

All in all, we have done many zipline courses over the years and this one was outstanding!

THE BEAST (LA BESTIA)
This zip line is different from all the others. For this one, you are put into a large body harness, and you lay down and get attached to the cables from your back. So you are flying through the air like a bird (or Superman or Ironman). As far as I know, it is the only one of its kind like this in Puerto Rico.


At 4745 feet, it is almost a mile long (one of the longest zip lines in the world) and it is really, really high off the ground (853 feet)! This zip line takes about 2 minutes from end to end, and you are going pretty fast during parts of it — with the wind whipping across your face (hang onto your hats and sunglasses). You have time to really enjoy the scenery. It was really fun, and over way too fast — I could have done that again and again.

This zipline has a minimum weight limit of 120 pounds, and a maximum weight limit of 300 pounds. This zip line is available all day, on demand.

For both of these zipline tours, your speed depends on a few things — light-weight people don’t go as fast, or as far. And wind plays a factor in slowing you down, too. If you don’t make it all the way to the end of the zipline (I once stopped about 40 feet from the platform) you can either pull yourself in or they will come and get you. But the heavier people on our tour made it to the end with no problem.

THE WILD BULL (TORO SALVAJE)
This is a hanging-bridges tour. But don’t expect it to be an easy tree-top walk on a bridge. These are adventure bridges. They swing, move and sway while you are trying to cross them and maintain your balance. Of course, you are clipped on to a safety line, but it still gets your heart pumping as you step from one board to the next.

These bridges require some effort on your part and give you a good upper body workout in the process. We worked up a sweat doing this part of course.


We did 3 of these bridges, though the complete course has 5 bridges and 2 nice long zip lines. The bridges also cross between the 2 mountains, so they are long and high up — between 200 and 400 feet long and 50 to 130 feet above the ground.

On one of the bridges (Salto del Coqui) there is an assisted rappel/descent from the middle of the bridge. The stepping off the wobbly bridge to hang 130 feet above the ground took quite a bit of courage! You can control how fast you descend by controlling how quickly the rope passes through your gear. After a slow start, I got going pretty quickly. It was really fun.

They offer tours on this course twice a day, once at 9am and then again at 2pm. For this course, participants must be at least 12 years old, have a maximum weight of 250 pounds and be in good physical condition. The maximum group size for this course is 15 people.

ESCAPE IF YOU CAN (SAL SI PUEDES)

This is an adventure that we did not do. But it has 4 zip lines and then a real rappeling experience. We saw the sheer rock wall you will be rappeling down for 164 feet — it looked crazy! There is also something called horizontal climbing or ferata. This is an active workout — you must be in good shape to do this tour.

They offer tours on this course twice a day, once at 9am and then again at 2pm. Participants must be at least 15 years old, have a maximum weight of 200 pounds and be in very good physical shape.

MOUNTAIN BIKING (BICICLETA MONTAÑERA)
This is another adventure that we did not do. The course was designed Marla Streb, a world champion mountain biker. The course is 8 miles long, and it offers challenges and beautiful views. There is something for everyone on this trail (from the beginners to experts). Participants must be at least 18 years old.

World's Coolest Zip Lines by Travel & Leisure

#5 Toro Verde's La Bestia, Orocovis, Puerto Rico
The nature park Toro Verde, about an hour outside San Juan, injects some audacious thrills into the eco-adventure genre. Case in point: its facedown zip line, Toro La Bestia, sends you flying across a misty 4,745-foot-long, 853-foot-high rainforest valley at up to 60 mph. It could be the most memorable two minutes of your trip.

Riding the World’s Highest Zipline in Puerto Rico
Published on 02/15/2011

A few days ago the Puerto Rico Tourism Corporation to me and some other travel writers to the Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park. The parks has 15 zip lines, monkey bridges and even had the opportunity to do some rappelling.
I had never done any of those things before, so it was new experience for me.
The highlight of the day was The Beast. It is a 4,745ft (1.45km) long zip line which is about 900 ft. above the forest floor at its highest point. The video I took was with my iphone and I was holding it vertical, so you might want to expand the video to full screen to see it properly. All image images on this page were taken with my iPhone, so they might not be up to my usual quality level.

The Five Longest Zip Lines in the World!


One thing I’m trying to do more of this year is experience a little more adventure travel. Sight seeing is cool for a while and museums are good for rainy days, but I miss a good ole’ adrenaline rush like when my parents let me go to extreme sports camp for two weeks. I begged them to let me go and I ended up messing up my tail bone and broke my hand, oh well (shame on them!)

I think the controlled chaos of a zip line would be more my speed these days, so here are the 5 longest zip lines in the world. Check them out!

...

#3 - Located in lush and beautiful Orocovis, Puerto Rico, The Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park “La Bestia” zip line stretches an impressive 4,745 feet! It is also considered the highest zip line in the world at over 900 feet from the ground below. You have the option of either riding sitting down or superman style.
