  • From San Juan: Zipline Canopy Adventure Tour

    1. From San Juan: Zipline Canopy Adventure Tour

    Start with pickup from your hotel in San Juan and travel along the Eastern Highway to the foothills of the Luquillo Mountains Range, where you will reach the El Yunque National Rainforest. Once at the zipline station, get equipped with your gear, harness, helmet, and hand gear in preparation for your aerial adventure. Explore 8 different sections, each strategically located within the rainforest canopy. Move between the landing platforms which are equipped with safety gear, handrails and guides that are there to meet you at each point. Discover the vastness of this lush tropical rainforest as you view it from the air at canopy level. Zoom through the air surrounded by nature for an exhilarating experience. Try to spot plant, animal and bird species as you fly through the air. After your exciting experience, be returned to your hotel in San Juan.

    I really enjoyed doing the zipline. The people are very helpful and friendly. Very nice area. I will be going back again.

  • San Juan: El Yunque Rainforest & Bio Bay Kayak Combo Tour

    2. San Juan: El Yunque Rainforest & Bio Bay Kayak Combo Tour

    Join your expert tour guide for an all-day excursion to the El Yunque Rainforest, then kayak with glowing planktons at a bio-luminescent bay. Start your adventure with a visit to the lesser-known zone of El Yunque, the only tropical rainforest in the United States. Hike and explore this off-the-beaten-track habitat. Take a dip in a waterfall or natural pool, or try out the waterslides. Hear fascinating stories from your guide about natural and local history. Spot native flora and fauna, many of which are not found anywhere else on the planet. After the hike, take a break with some lunch at a local restaurant. Then its time for a kayak adventure through mangrove channels leading to the Laguna Grande. Meet the glowing microscopic planktons capable of producing natural light at the touch of your hand. Paddle in this remarkable yet safe environment. Explore these amazing creatures up clo...

    The hiking trip to the waterfall/river was so much fun and the tour guides were awesome. Very involved and made sure everyone was enjoying themselves. Breathtaking views and the water felt amazing cause it was so hot!! Bio Bay Kayaking was an absolute waste of time and money. For starters, the water smelled like we were kayaking in a cess pool. The water was black and smelled like rotten eggs. Didn't seem very sanitary or safe for anyone to be in. Then we were lined up in our kayaks and covered with a tarp full of sand in order to see the plankton light up (which they didn't) they clearly stated this wasn't guaranteed but according to other reviews it seems like it doesn't happen any time of the year. So we literally just got covered in sand from head to toe for no reason. I really do not recommend this activity to anyone.

  • San Juan: El Yunque Rainforest and Bio Bay Combo Tour

    3. San Juan: El Yunque Rainforest and Bio Bay Combo Tour

    Following a morning pickup at your accommodation, embark in direction of your bio bay and rainforest combo adventure. Enjoy the beautiful views along the scenic route through the Northside of the island and learn some facts about the areas from your guide. Make a stop in the town of Luquillo and enjoy some fresh local fruits before continuing the journey 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 of which are only found here in Puerto Rico. Once there, hike through natural trails lined with beautiful flora and fauna, and some river wading, until you'll arrive at a hidden gem located in the heart of the rainforest. Enjoy the b...

    Communication was great! Easy transportation. Instructions say to wear swimsuit, but, really a pair of sport legging type shorts would be ideal. Highly recommended lightweight (dri fit) type clothing/shirt (no cotton). You will get fully submersed in the water. Wear old tennis shoes (& old socks) with good grip & plan to discard them or machine wash them due to the soupy rainforest mud. I wore a pair of closed to Keen hiking sandals w/ great grip & they were perfect! The guides were great & take pics & email them to you. You will leave everything on the bus during both excursions. Only brought a bottled water along on trail. No lunch provided, but they stop for smoothies on the way & have a great fruit spread (pineapple, papaya, mango, avocado) for a mid-day snack. Supper (you are responsible for the payment) is early (3:30/4) and was pretty good. Your guide will share a menu & get your order once you arrive to the rainforest. Rainforest portion was amazing! Kayaking was just ok. Enjoy

  • San Juan: Bioluminescent Glass-Bottom Kayak Tour by Night

    4. San Juan: Bioluminescent Glass-Bottom Kayak Tour by Night

    Embark on a nighttime adventure into the waters of the Laguna Grande and see millions of glowing plankton. Paddle in a two-person glass-bottom kayak (except on Tuesdays, when regular kayaks are used) for approximately 30-minutes through the mystical mangrove channels leading to the natural reserve of the Laguna Grande. See the microscopic plankton capable of producing natural light at the touch of your hand. Explore these amazing organisms up close as your professional guide takes you on a journey to discover all their secrets. Learn how this fragile and unique ecosystem maintains a perfect balance of life, and what you can do to protect such a special place. Paddle in this safe and closed environment, and watch as the water comes alive with millions of glowing plankton. Be aware that the bio bay is an unpredictable natural phenomenon that may be influenced by multiple factors. Biolu...

    The guides were great. But I would definitely take the later tour as the plankton illuminates in much darker conditions.

  • From San Juan: El Yunque Forest Off the Beaten Path Tour

    5. From San Juan: El Yunque Forest Off the Beaten Path Tour

    Feel like a true explorer on an off-the-beaten-path tour in the heart of the El Yunque Rainforest. Avoid big crowds as you blaze a trail to the lesser-known attractions of the lush tropical rainforest. The initial hike is a 25-30 minute journey up a rock and dirt path with some river wading. This trail is surrounded by bamboo trees, rainforest flowers, and many other beautiful plants. Visit a collecting pool that forms at the base of a waterfall. Here you will have the opportunity to swim in its crystal clear waters and admire the colors of its deep pools. Enjoy the cascades of the waterfall and take the opportunity to snap pictures. Continue exploring the rainforest and end your adventure in another pool area, the rainforest's best-kept secret. After a few minutes of hiking, arrive at a river where you can swim, swing from a rope into the river, and enjoy natural water slides.

    This tour was so much fun! I loved that it was a small group, and our guide was really helpful and personable. Definitely recommend bringing two bathing suits if you can swing it, as there are plenty of opportunities to change. Loved it!
