What You Can Expect

El Yunque Rainforest Half-Day Trip from San Juan

La Coca Falls

Explore the only tropical rainforest in the United States National Forest system on this half-day trip. Walk the park’s nature trails, surrounded by tree orchids, giant ferns and wildflowers, as you venture to a camera-worthy collection of waterfalls and panoramic vistas in northeast Puerto Rico.

Start your day with pickup around 7:45am from select hotels in San Juan. Then drive from San Juan to El Yunque, admiring the typical native towns and changing scenery as you ascend higher into the rainforest. This ecosystem is named after the ancient Indian spirit Yuquiyu, who was  believed to have once reigned over all of Puerto Rico, protecting the island and its people.

Begin an easy walk on one of the park's trails, keeping an eye out for any of the area’s wildlife. Make your way along paths thick with tree orchids, giant ferns, wild flowers and tropical hardwood trees, and stop by La Coca Waterfall.

Then make your way back to San Juan, arriving back at your hotel in the early afternoon around 1:15pm.

The Rainforest Tour was excellent. The tour guide was knowledgeable of the plants, trees, flowers and history and made sure all guests were taken care of. It rained quite a bit, as it is the rainy season, but it did not take away from the beautiful scenery and enjoyable sites and walks. I would highly recommend this tour, it is a good value for money.

Juan was a fun tour guide. His humor, knowledge, and genuine interest made the tour. If you are lucky to visit the forest on a clear day, you will be rewarded with beautiful views. This is an easy tour for people who aren't into hiking through the rainforest but still want to see everything.

The El Yunque Half Day tour was excellent. We enjoyed seeing and learning about the rain forest. The beauty of all the various plant and fruit trees were awesome. Our tour guide Francesa was friendly and knowledgeable. We also enjoyed eating at the restaurant that is inside the rain forest El Murilla. I highly recommend adding this to your things to do.
