Go off the beaten path with a small group to enjoy a majestic rainforest and taste the local cuisine of this enchanted island. Book your tour with us and get away from the tourist traps for a unique and personal experience!

Your guide will meet you with a morning pick up from your accommodation or meeting point between 8:00am–8:30am.

Here you can try the local fritters and/or a fresh fruit smoothie. After this stop, the tour will continue to the majestic rainforest.

You’ll then go off the beaten path by visiting the south side of the El Yunque rainforest for a 25-minute hike to an amazing spot called Las Tinajas! Descend here to the natural pool where you can swim, relax, or try out the rope swing above the water. For more adventure, you can follow your guide and climb further upriver and over the big rocks formations for about 15 minutes. Enjoy the waterfalls, slide down the natural water slide, or make a 40-feet foot cliff jump into the river! Your guide will prepare delicious local fresh fruits once you’ve reached the natural pool.

It’s time for lunch! You’ll head to the popular Luquillo Kiosko’s, where you’ll find souvenir shops and a choice of 60 different restaurants located on a strip located along the beach. Here you can taste the local flavors of Puerto Rican cuisine, fresh seafood and much more. After this stop, you will be transported back to your accommodation.
