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. 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. 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 two hours of fun in the sun, your tour heads back to San Juan.
Please note this tour does not include lunch.
