  • Enjoy a nature walk in the rainforest foothills
  • Relax on Luqillo Beach after your forest walk
Full description

Explore a secluded place off the beaten path on a short rainforest walk. Feel at one with nature as you make your way to a natural stream. Take a dip in the pools, then head to Luquillo Beach to relax.

After pickup from your accommodation, drive to the rainforest in a bus with your bilingual guide. Hear about Puerto Rican heritage, and enjoy live commentary and interpretation of your surroundings throughout the trip.

Upon arrival at the rainforest, get ready for a 20-minute walk along a nature path. Watch out for wet, uneven terrain as you hike through the flora to reach the river. Once there, take a swim in the pools (weather dependent) and enjoy contact with nature.

After the rainforest, board the bus again toward Luquillo Beach. There, enjoy 2 hours to eat, listen to music, play in the sand, and soak up the sun’s rays at the beach kiosks. Finally, the day concludes with drop-off at your original pickup location.

This trip was perfect for our group of 19 ranging in age from 5 to 84. The bus ride was comfortable. Jerry, our guide provided lots of interesting and useful info about Puerto Rico and El Yunque. Rafael, the driver was excellent and kind, walking slowly to make sure the older folks in our group were ok on the hike. The river was not swimable due to recent heavy rain but we brought a lunch and had a picnic there. The afternoon at Luquillo beach was fabulous with delicious mojitos, ponchos and lovely swimming. It was a perfect excursion, interesting for the younger folks and not too hard for the older folks. Thanks!

We weren’t notified timely there was a time change in our excursion. The excursion we enjoyed. I would have liked more “jungle” time but it’s a drive both ways. I did like the information our guide shared about San Juan and Puerto Rico. So over all it was a good day.

It was a nice walk. Our guide was awesome and shared alot of information about Puerto Rico and the forest. He took our pics and videos. The beach was really nice. It was quiet and calm although it's not really clean. The drinks and food there were on the pricey side. Overall, great excursion. Both drivers and guides are great!
