What You Can Expect

El Yunque Rainforest and Luquillo Beach from San Juan

El Yunque Rainforest

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. Over the course of 8 hours, 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, leaving around 8 and 9am. 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 2.5 hours of fun in the sun, your tour heads back to San Juan, arriving at around 5pm.

Please note this tour does not include lunch.

This is a great tour for people wanting to see the highlights of the rain forest, try some local food and spend some time at one of the most beautiful Puerto Rican beaches. They pick you up at your hotel if your hotel is on the list, and from there, you just get to sit back and enjoy the view mostly. Carlos was amazing! He was our driver/tour guide and was very knowledgeable. The forest is beautiful and the local food for lunch is definitely something everyone should try. Luquillo beach is gorgeous! The water was calm and the view of the mountains was breathtaking. As someone who wasn't too interesting in renting a car, this was the perfect solution to get to these places with someone who not only knows the area, but also knows the history.

Ricky was our guide and a great one! He told us all kinds of history and knowledge of San Juan on our drive to the rainforest. Then he guided us all around the hiking paths and found frogs and other small animals and told us all about them and the forest plants. Then we stopped for lunch at a small stand with Puertorican food, Then off to the beautiful!! beach of Luquillo. Lovely. Again Ricky is a very good guide and does his job well. He made our day!

Frankie was fantastic! His sense of humor combined with knowledge of El Yunque made this breathtaking trip a must. Our 10 and 13 year old boys enjoyed the tour. We were not able to visit Luquillo Beach simply because there were not enough people signed up for that part of the tour. Still worth it. Be cautious of bringing young children. There are narrow pathways with steep drop offs.

Our tour took place on January 31st. Our tour guide, Robert, was very knowledgeable and informative. Not only did we learn about the rain forest and the beach, Robert also explained to us about the history, culture and people of Puerto Rico. After hiking, it was wonderful to be able to relax and swim at a beautiful beach. There are food stands on the beach and wonderful drinks. Thank you, Robert, for all that you did for us on our tour. We highly recommend this tour.
