In this excursion we will not enter the official El Yunque National Rainforest for sightseeing, but rather visit the less touristy spots and local water fun areas on the outskirts of the Rainforest for a more adventurous experience. This action packed day will start by visiting two natural rock waterslides, one for beginners and another for the adrenaline seekers, swimming in natural water holes and jumping from rocks. Then will head to a serene freshwater natural pool where the more adventurous will be able to jump from a rope swing and others will just float, swim or relax in the river bank. All this surrounded by green lush areas and after first doing a short hike to admire the local plants and trees. End up this perfect day by relaxing at a beautiful popular beach with few waves and calm waters.
Our day will start with an early one-hour drive heading to the northeast coast of PR. During this time, you will learn about the island’s history, geography and culture while cruising through the countryside.
1First visit is a privately owned local spot. The area has beautiful volcanic rock formations to walk around, a small waterfall and a natural swimming hole where you can jump from rocks. The main attractions are two natural rock waterslides, one for beginners and another for the adrenaline seekers, that will make everybody have a great time.
2Once we have enjoyed this amazing place, the second stop is at the rainforest outskirts with its green and lush scenery. We will have a guided short hike through a trail that leads to another river and a serene freshwater natural pool, while admiring the local plants and trees around. Here, the more adventurous will be able to jump from a rope swing and others will just float, swim or relax in the shallow areas of the river.
3After all this action is time to enjoy a lunch break at an authentic nearby restaurant.
4Don’t worry about falling into a food coma…you will have the chance to relax later for about one hour at the beautiful popular Luquillo beach, with few waves and calm waters, before heading back to your hotel.
