What You Can Expect

El Yunque Rainforest and Luquillo Beach from San Juan

El Yunque Rainforest

Departing from San Juan, you can combine a visit to the rainforest with an afternoon at one of the world's most beautiful beaches. On the Northeast coast of Puerto Rico, Luquillo Beach is the island's best and most popular public stretch of tranquil waters and golden sand. Offshore are coral formations and spectacular sea life and tropical fish. The water is calm and comfortable - the perfect place for families!

From here, you'll explore the cool, mountainous and semi tropical El Yunque rainforest. The abundant rainfall is shed through rocky rivers, creating many cascades of waterfalls and pools. El Yunque hosts a number of unique plant and animal species such as the endangered Puerto Rican parrot and the tiny coquis, an indigenous tree frog.

According to ancient Indian legend, the good spirit 'Yuquiyu' reigned on his mighty mountain-top throne, protecting Puerto Rico and its people. The name Luquillo is derived from this god's spirit's Indian name.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Our trip was fantastic. Our tour guide, Francisco, was incredibly knowledgeable, informative, and generally pleasant. The only thing I would say is that everyone on my tour was having a great time at the beach and it would have been nice to be able to stay a little longer, even if we had to pay a little more. But overall great trip and our tour guide was fantastic.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

I wasn't able to go on this tour due to the road to El Yunque being closed to traffic because of heavy rains. Tina, the local tour director, offered me an alternative: going on a snorkeling catamaran cruise to barrier islands off of Fajardo. The cruise and snorkeling was fantastic! The food and crew were great! I was given the same rate as the original El Yunque tour so I got a $98 tour for 1/4 the cost. I then booked a half-day El Yunque tour which did go on as planned and was a great delight! The guide, Tony, was fun, full of fascinating information, and a good guy to hang out with! I was satisfied 100% with both my tours. I most definitely would go on future Viator Tours
