Harmonize your senses with nature and join us in a half-day adventure at the Luquillo Rainforest foothills. Feel the anticipation of exploring a new place, of swimming in a river of pure water born at the peak of the same mountain you are. Our guide will escort you on a memorable journey where you will delight in your surroundings, see beautiful landmarks, take refreshing dips in the streams, and get to enjoy this Nature Walk. Our tour guide will meet you at your hotel or location, at the previously accorded pickup time (contact us for confirmation). From there, we will head east through the coastal road boarding the beautiful beaches in the town of Loíza. Exposition regarding our Puerto Rican heritage, and live commentary and interpretation of your surroundings can be given in both English and Spanish throughout the journey. After this time, we head back to your lodgings. (Swimming is dependent on weather conditions)

Stop At: Yokahu Observation Tower
Dr. Frank H. Wadsworth, a former forest supervisor and director of the IITF, constructed this 69-foot tower in the early 1960s. On a clear day, the Virgin Islands may be seen from Yokah Tower, along with the coastline and four different types of forest: Colorado (smooth to the south), Tabonuco (irregular surrounding with white-leaved Yagrumos), Palm (on the steep slopes), and Cloud Forest (on the peaks). To the east, in the upper Mameyes Valley, is the deep ancient forest of the Bao de Oro Research Natural Area.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: La Coca Falls
La Coca Falls is a magnificent waterfall, rising 1,476 feet (450 meters) above sea level! La Coca Cascades' water falls 85 feet (26 meters) to the bottom of the falls, where it meets a massive rock formation. The location is ideal for taking pictures.
Duration: 20 minutes
Stop At: Angelito Trail
To reach the Ro Mameyes, which has been deemed a "Wild and Scenic River" by the federal government, this short walk descends through Tabonuco trees in the lower montane forest. The roar of the rushing river draws you closer and draws you to Las Damas Pool and other popular bathing areas.
Duration: 1 hour
