How To Spend A Day At El Yunque National Forest In Puerto Rico

Once we arrive at the Rainforest River, we will take a nature walk path through the flora until reaching the river stream. Explore a lush rainforest and help contribute to Puerto Rico’s recovery from Hurricane Maria with this all-day guided tour. After a convenient hotel pickup, travel by passenger van to El Yunque National Rainforest and support road and trail construction with your entrance fee. Enjoy a refreshing swim at a waterfall, experience picture-perfect views, and learn about the island’s wildlife and exotic plants from your guide. Explore the beauty of Puerto Rico’s El Yunque rainforest from up high and down low during this 8.5-hour combination zipline and hiking adventure. Zoom through the forest canopy during your zipline adventure, enjoying 10 sections of cable covering 2,800 feet of distance.
Your day will start by meeting your local guide in the morning at your accommodation or nearby meeting point. After completing all of our pick ups, we will head towards the rainforest, sharing with you beautiful views and a few fun facts about the areas along the way. This relaxing sightseeing drive will take you through 4 towns of Puerto Rico before arriving to our first stop at a fresh fruit el yunque stand in the town of Luquillo. Here, your guide will pick up a variety of fresh local fruit for the tour , and you have the opportunity to purchase some local fritters and/or a fresh fruit smoothie. After this stop, we will continue towards Puerto Rico’s majestic Rainforest. From a coastline of nearly 300 sandy beaches to maze-like caves to bioluminescent pools, there’s much to explore here.

We went on their “Ponce Walking Tour” and really feel we now have a better idea of Ponce. Puerto Rico is famous for a lot of things, with rum being one of them. Back in the mid 1870s, Pedro Fernández started making rum at his home to share with his family and friends.
The north shore of Puerto Rico has miles of beautiful shoreline and it is one of my favorite spots for great views on the island. Mar Chiquita is a small cove of a beach protected from the rough Atlantic by a rocky wall. This picture-perfect beach, located in the town of Manatí, is not always good for swimming, but it is always beautiful. More than 150 years ago, the Plaza del Mercado in Old San Juan was the place to go to shop for food stuffs, fruits and veggies.

The Jardín de la Princesa park in Old San Juan was opened to the public in October 2014. It features five bronze sculptures by Jose Buscaglia representing the Source of the Heritage of the Americas. It along Paseo de la Princesa, not far from the cruise ship piers … so it’s an easy stop on your tour of Old San Juan. Moonshine, White Lightning, Hooch, Tennessee White Whiskey — call it what you will.
Castillo San Felipe del Morro, also known as Fort San Felipe del Morro or El Morro Castle, is a 16th-century citadel in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

(You can buy a chiringa as well as your picnic foods from local vendors.) Or, you can just let the kids run around — that’ll work too. Tropical-flavored piraguas or paletas will refuel both children and adults. The forts, including Castillo San Felipe del Morro and other historical structures of Old San Juan, are a UNESCO World Heritage site and are especially popular with active families. My wife and I spent most of a day exploring these sights.

Humacao is similar to Fajardo , with a resort that is the destination. The Wyndham Garden at Palmas del Mar offers a beachfront location, swimming pools , onsite dining and a casino for parents to enjoy. Alternatively, families can rent vacation homes and enjoy the same activities via local vendors. Part of the United States, yet located in the Caribbean, Puerto Rico is a prime vacation destination for families (despite a lack of all-inclusive resorts). Airfare is surprisingly reasonable, and it’s possible to see several parts of the island in one trip. The most difficult decision is choosing where to base your family between explorations in El Yunque National Forest and Old San Juan.
here are some facilities, some food and water sports vendors, and even a chair/umbrella rental place. It is a colorful beach, with the pier and the fishing boats, you can get lots of good photos. Katarina Sail Charters is the only sailboat tour that goes out of the Rincón area. They offer a couple tours per day, allowing you to get out on the water and experience Rincón from the ocean side.
They have an electric motor boat tour that is both safe for the environment and fun. With 16 lighthouses to visit and explore, Puerto Rico is a dream location for lighthouse enthusiasts. The Rincon lighthouse isn’t particularly either of those. However, it is a great place to watch surfers, the sunset, and dolphins and whales. Casa Pueblo is a community-based organization focused on, among other things, the protection and management of natural resources.

Crossing the bay every 30 minutes, Cataño Ferry (La Lancha de Cataño) connects Old San Juan with the municipality of Cataño; fares are very inexpensive. The Fajardo Ferry carries passengers and cars on a triangular route linking Fajardo on the east end of the island with the islands of Vieques and Culebra. Transportation to other Caribbean islands includes America Cruise Ferries, which operates the Caribbean Fantasy between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. The eight- to 12-hour overnight crossing operates Monday and Friday from Puerto Rico’s Pan American terminal; phone . Rental cars also are available, as are chauffeur-driven cars.
They say the brightness of the bay comes and goes, but it was not at all bright the night we went out on the large boat. Smaller boats can go deeper into the bay, so the sparkles are better seen. But If nothing else, it’s an inexpensive nighttime boat ride. The Carite Forest is located just up the road from the Guavate area in Cayey.
It had been a place where you could get a map, some souvenirs, bottles of water, a poncho, and use the bathroom. The employees also helped with any questions and could update you on the latest El Yunque information. Up until 2020, the visitor center had been in a short-term place just outside of the National Forest called Portalito HUB in a little town called Palmer. With all that rain, you’d expect to have a mosquito issue but I did not encounter one after a full day of hiking. El Yunque is home to thousands of native plants and trees, with nearly two dozen tree species exclusively found in this forest. At 28,000 acres, El Yunque National Forest is relatively small for a National Forest but it’s a lush and diverse natural space that immerses you into the rainforest ecosystem.
