EL YUNQUE FOREST TOUR IN PUERTO RICO

Start your day by meeting your guide at the local fruit stand “Frutera Flores” in the town of Luquillo. Here, your Puerto Rican guide will pick up a variety of fresh local fruit for the tour (included), and you have the opportunity to purchase some local fritters and/or a fresh fruit smoothie. After this stop, you will follow your tour guide to Puerto Rico’s majestic Rainforest.

El Yunque is without a doubt Puerto Rico’s greatest Natural Wonder. It is the only Tropical Rainforest, and the most studied Forest, in the United States National Forest System. It is the most biologically diverse forest, hosting hundreds of plants and animals, some only found here in Puerto Rico!

After an interpretive hike through natural trails lined with beautiful flora and fauna, and some river wading, we will arrive to a hidden gem found in the heart of the rainforest. This breathtaking segment of the 29,000 acre forest is like a natural playground. Here you will have the chance to swim in the natural pools, refresh in waterfalls, slide down an exhilarating waterslide, rope swing into the river, jump from different rock formations, and enjoy fresh local fruit with a view. Along with all of this excitement, you will also have time to simply relax to the sounds of cascading waters and take in the beauty of this very special place.

Important Note: One of the things that we enjoy the most about our tours and excursions is that every day on the water, in the El Yunque rainforest, or anywhere in Puerto Rico, it’s a different experience. According to the specific weather conditions, seasons, and availabilities for any given day, your trip may vary slightly from our advertised offerings. It’s truly one of the most unique rain forests in the United States national forest system. On these rare occasions, our tour guides will select the route that they believe will be the most fun and enjoyable for the entire group. On some full day trips, a given trip may make an additional stop beyond what is advertised; at the same time, that trip may make one less stop than what is advertised. For that reason, we encourage you to choose your trips based on the rough descriptions provided here on our website and simply trust us to provide you with a wonderful experience.
