What You Can Expect

El Yunque Rainforest Half-Day Trip from San Juan

La Coca Falls

Visit the only tropical rainforest in the United States National Forest system, on this half-day exploration of one of the Caribbean’s most unique natural environments. Over the course of your 5.5-hour trip, you’ll 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 your tour climbs ever-higher to the rainforest. This one-of-a-kind ecosystem is named after the ancient Indian spirit Yuquiyu, who they believed once reigned over all of Puerto Rico, protecting the island and its people.

From there you’ll begin your an easy walk on one of the park's trails, keeping an eye out for any of the area’s endangered wildlife. Make your way along paths thick with tree orchids, giant ferns, wild flowers and tropical hardwood trees, and keep your camera ready for panoramic views from the trails’ scenic overlooks. You'll also stop by La Coca Waterfall, where you'll be able to capture a few more postcard-worthy pics.

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

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.

Make sure to tell visitors to bring a towel because it got a little cold in the tour shuttle bus after taking a dive in the waterfall. Other than that, the tour guide was good and the visited places were awesome. Thanks.

The tour was great! It rained most of the time which occluded most of our view from the mountain. The van that we rode in was nice and clean. Ricky was our guide and he was awesome. Very knowledgable about the plants and animals in the forest and even about the local buissnesses in San Juan.

We had a fantastic tour. Highly recommend comfortable non-slip shoes and be prepared to walk a bit. Scenery is unbelievable and our tour guide was a hoot.
