Pioneers in the region, the initial objective of our company was the
development of a new and responsible way of doing tourism towards the
exploring and recognition of the natural history of our area and our Taíno
roots.  We started catering the needs of locals with a complete program of
tours and expeditions departing from Mayagüez.  Nevertheless, our
commitment with the region gained us islandwide reputation with the
creation of "La Ruta del Café" and
birding trips, which we have been
since 1992.

One year later,
AdvenTours was born (1993) as a result of the requests
we had for
soft adventure experiences from international travelers.  We
kept our operation small to guarantee the quality of our service, catering
individuals and small groups.

We expanded our wings in
1997 offering our services to the hotels located
from San Juan to Fajardo.  In 2001, we established a partnership with the
US Forest Service and by 2002 we opened a main office in the east in
order to offer night hikes at El Yunque.
