What You Can Expect

El Yunque Rainforest and Luquillo Beach from San Juan

El Yunque Rainforest

This family-friendly day trip to two of Puerto Rico’s top outdoor attractions is the perfect introduction to the startlingly diverse landscapes of this island nation. Over the course of 8 hours, you’ll swim on postcard-perfect stretch of sand before taking a hike through a rainforest that’s home to more than 200 species of plants and animals. 

Start your day with a morning pickup from select hotels in San Juan, leaving around 8 and 9am. Then proceed to the day’s first stop at the cool, mountainous environment of El Yunque rainforest. Watch for the park’s unique wildlife, including the endangered Puerto Rican parrot and the Coquí, a tiny tree frog native to the island. Along the way you’ll also stop at an observation tower, a few of the park’s many streams and the beautiful La Coca waterfall.

Continue your tour in the afternoon at Luquillo, site of one of Puerto Rico’s most-popular (and picturesque) beaches. Swim and play in the beach’s calm waters, or feel free to take a look just offshore at the colorful coral and spectacular sea life. After 2.5 hours of fun in the sun, your tour heads back to San Juan, arriving at around 5pm.

Please note this tour does not include lunch.

  • La Coca Waterfall (no swimming, just taking photos)

This tour was the highlight of my trip to San Juan, PR! Our guide was Victor Martinez. He was wonderful! He has such a wealth of knowledge of Puerto Rico and the rain forest. The tour was very laid back and relaxing with a nice easy hike in the forest and some stops to take photos of the beautiful scenery and views from the observation tower. If you are looking for a challenging hike, I suggest you take another tour, but it was perfect for what we were looking for. Luquillo Beach was also nice, but I think if I were to do this tour again, I would stick with just the rain forest, but it was nice to see another beach aside from the resort beach. I would definitely recommend this tour with Victor!

Jorge, our tour guide, was AMAZING! What a great person...wonderful humor, very knowledgeable. El Yunque was gorgeous and then two amazing hours in Luquillo. Honestly, the most beautiful beach I've been in to. Its a bit selfish but I'd love another hour in Luquillo. Thank you Jorge!!

Had a great laidback experience on this trip. The perfect way to just experience the history and the laidback way of island life. Highly recommended if you have some more extreme tours on your lists to do. This will definitely slow things down and put things in perspective for you!
