Itinerary

Experience Puerto Rico’s two greatest natural attractions starting with a scenic drive and stop at a local fruit stand. After an interpretive hike on natural trails lined with beautiful flora and fauna, and some river wading/rock scaling, we will arrive to a hidden gem in the heart of the majestic rainforest. At this breathtaking segment of the forest you can swim in natural pools, refresh in waterfalls, slide down an exhilarating waterslide, rope swing into the river, jump from different rock formations, and simply relax to the sounds of cascading waters while taking in the beauty of this very special place. Enjoy dinner and a break before the Bio Bay at a local restaurant. After receiving a few kayaking tips, we will kayak approximately 30 minutes through the Red Mangrove Forest to the Bioluminescent Lagoon. Along the way, your Eco Guides will point out the forests beautiful protected flora and fauna. Upon arrival to Laguna Grande, the sun will set and the magic begins. At every stroke of your paddle, sparkles will appear in the water. The kayaks will create a swirl of light, and the fish will glow in the darkness of the water. The Rainforest & Bio Bay Tour is simply a must!

Stop At:

• Laguna Grande, Cabezas Nature Reserve Northeastern Coast Puerto Rico
• El Yunque Rain Forest, El Yunque National Forest Puerto Rico
