Discover the natural wonders of El Yunque Rainforest on this laid-back half-day exploration from San Juan. Visit a beautiful waterfall, incredible views and more than 240 species of plants and animals that call this sub-tropical habitat home.

Explore the only tropical rain forest in the United States National Forest system on this half-day trip. Discover the local flora including 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 early with pickup 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.

Keep an eye out for any of the area’s wildlife and make your way past tree orchids, giant ferns, wildflowers, 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.

A must see visit to the rainforest...

This was a very informative visit to the rainforest. Our guide, Ramon, was extremely knowledgeable, not only about the rainforest, but Puerto Rico in general. The three stop in the rainforest were all different (watch tower, water falls, river). Ramon provided general information at each stop and answered individual questions from the group until all questions were answered. The only downside for the tour (which had nothing to do with the tour company or Ramon) was that parts of the rainforest remain closed after Hurricane Maria. If you are visiting San Juan or any other venue in northeastern Puerto Rico you need to take this tour.

Our guide was delightful, organized and was extremely knowledgeable of the Puerto Rico and the rain forest. He provided history of the geology of the formation of the island, botanical information of the flora found in the rain forest, and the history of the island. He was a true ambassador of Puerto Rico and was a pleasure him as our guide.

The tour guide did an excellent job talking us to all of the popular spots in the rain forest. He was very knowledgeable regarding plants, but he took a little too long exploring flora in the parking lot before we even got started. I wish we could have spent a little more time hiking in the rain forest, instead of just driving from spot to spot.

El Yunque Rainforest experience

This was a average experience for us it actually was only a there hour trip. First, we llistened to a short film, unfortunately a group of guides were having a loud conversation near us so we didn't hear half of the movie. Our guide took us to an area in the El Yunque forest to see the river and surrounding foliage. The guide was very informative. We then drive up to the tower and saw the waterfall. It was a nice experience but expensive for what we did. We did not see any animals or birds, but did see a couple of butterflies. I would rent a car next time and actually take a hike.

I would like to thank for being our guest and taking the time to share your observation . The Puerto Rican Parrot is not visible due to it's green color.If it's quiet, you can hear them. You may see Lizards which are all over the Forest,.We do offer a Rainforest Tour with nature walk, which may have been a better choice for you. I am glad that the Guide was very informative.
