Our tour guide will meet you at the pickup location, at the previously accorded pickup time (call us for confirmation).We'll then go east for around 45 minutes to El Yunque. Throughout the ride, live commentary and interpretation of your surroundings, as well as information on our Puerto Rican heritage, can be provided in both English and Spanish. We will see La Coca Falls and Yokahu Tower once we get in the Rainforest. Then, for around 20 minutes, you'll walk through the flora till you reach the river stream on a nature walk path (look out for slippery, uneven ground). Remember to bring your towel and swimsuit! (Swimming is dependent on the weather.) After the rainforest, we'll board the bus again and travel to Luquillo Beach and Kiosks, where we'll stay for two hours so you can eat or relax on the beach before returning. Finally, we'll wrap up the day by returning guests to their original pick-up location.

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Luquillo Beach

After all that trailing in the Rainforest River, it will be time to unwind, laze and eat to your heart’s content at the Luquillo Kiosks and Beach. You’ll also have the time to relax on the beautiful beach of Luquillo and enjoy the savory local cuisine the Kiosks offer… Have a good time!

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At: Yokahu Observation Tower

This 69 foot tower was built by Dr. Frank H. Wadsworth (former Forest Supervisor and Director of IITF) in the early 1960’s. Four types of the forest can be viewed from Yokahú Tower: Colorado (smooth to the south), Tabonuco (irregular surrounding with white-leaved Yagrumos), Palm (on the steep slopes) and Cloud Forest (on the ridges) are all visible along with the coastline and all the way to the Virgin Islands on a clear day (10 mile + view). The dense old forest of the Baño de Oro Research Natural Area in the upper Mameyes Valley to the east may also be viewed.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: La Coca Falls

At an elevation of 1, 476 feet (450 meters) above sea level, La Coca Falls is a spectacular waterfall! The waters of La Coca Falls drop 85 feet (26 meters) onto a huge rock formation at the bottom of the falls. This is an excellent spot to take photos.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Angelito Trail

This short trail descends through Tabonuco trees in the lower montane forest to the federally designated “Wild and Scenic River,” the Río Mameyes. As you get closer, the roar of the rushing river pulls you onward to Las Damas Pool and other favorite swimming spots. This is a nice trail for families with younger children and school groups. This trail received a lot of flooding and damage after Hurricane Maria. The replacement of the pedestrian bridge was partially funded by donations through the National Forest Foundation (NFF) working with the nearby Wyndham Rio Mar Grand Resort and their guests.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
