El Yunque National Forest Half Day Tour

El Yunque National Forest Half Day Tour

Take time to escape to heaven on Earth in this half day tour, and let the natural beauty of El Yunque Rainforest captivate you with its lush green vegetation, amazing flora, huge boulders, cascading rivers and scenic views. Visit the only Tropical Rainforest in the US Federal jurisdiction, with over 28,000 continuous acres. Immerse yourself with the vibrating energy of El Yunque’s rivers and clean air, just like the indigenous Taíno tribe did centuries ago while our certified tour guide and interpreter will provide amazing history and stories.

During this tour you will visit the world famous La Coca Waterfall, the perfect setting for picture opportunities.  We will also stop at the Yocahú Observation Tower and other areas so you may enjoy the different views of El Yunque.  A final stop will be made at a trail for an easy walk to a waterfall and river. Sometimes the tour schedule allows to have spare time in order to bathe on it's refreshing waters, but this stop cannot be guaranteed.
