Explore El Yunque Rainforest & Luquillo Beach in One Day

Sit back and relax on this leisurely trip to the El Yunque Rainforest, the only subtropical rainforest in the United States Forest Service. The forest system is a nature lover’s wonderland, with river streams, hiking trails, and panoramic vistas. There’s no other place like it in Puerto Rico. In fact, there’s no other place like it in the entire United States. Under its trees, you can find a unique ecosystem that has enchanted its visitors for centuries, and which at this time is in nature’s recovery. This tour gives a glimpse at the rainforest after Hurricane Maria’s forceful winds.

Enjoy the rainforest from a different point of view. Some of its best-known sites, La Coca Falls and the Observation Tower, are your first stops for photo opportunities. The next stop is at the Mameyes River (Puente Roto Crossing), which is the most popular water play area in the forest that is currently open to visitors. There you can take pictures and cool off. Water shoes are recommended to go into the river.

From your tour guide, you learn about the diverse vegetation and wildlife. Like all ecosystems in wake of a natural disaster, the rainforest will now go through a process of succession, with pioneer species taking root first. See how Mother Nature starts bringing back the lush greenery and recovers.

After a relaxing time by the river in the rainforest, you enjoy a two-hour stop at Luquillo Beach. Swim and/or enjoy lunch at the famous Luquillo kiosks for some local cuisine such as fritters like alcapurias, bacalaitos, and other local flavors. Cost of lunch not included.
