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.

It was a rainy day however it was a great hike through the rainforest. The wild life is subtle so you have to keep your eyes peeled. Most of it is very small. I had a great time. My tour guide was very knowledgeable and the pace was perfect. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Carlos was great. Very knowledgeable about the history of the area and all the foliage in the rain forest. I am not a big hiker but was able to handle the short hike into the forest. I also went up the tower we went to and the view was incredible. We stopped at a small roadside cafe for lunch and enjoyed chicken on a stick and a beer for under 10. It was fun and I'm glad I did it. Thanks Carlos. Lisa

Beautiful tour! Tony was an awesome tour guide--very knowledgeable about the rainforest and proud to tell us about his hometown on the edge of the rainforest. The view from the tower was amazing. Great tour if you only want to do a little bit of hiking provided that you can walk up some steps.

This was our 1 thing to do after ElMorro. Picked up at Marriott with a 10 minute window. Be sure to confirm time 2 days before. Ricky our guide was super, well informed and attentive. We had a small group of about 10 people. Less than 1 hour to rainforest. Nicely spaced stops, 1. Visitors center- restrooms and giftstore. 2. Tower- great views 3.Hike- somewhat rough terrain- if you cannot walk, you could just stay with van. Hike was great, small waterfall, Ricky explained about snails, stick bugs and local vegetation. 4. Nice Waterfall. !/2 day was a nice amount of good paced activity. Highly recommended.

This was an educational, laid back, totally pleasurable experience. My husband and I are in our 70's and we were very pleased by the scale of this tour. Our guide was really informative, pleasant, and compassionate. We had an 8 year old that wasn't feeling well and the guide could not have been kinder. His expertise was amazing and his sense of humor just perfect. Ahaving never seen a rainforest this was a magnificent experience. Many thanks. Highly recommended.
