El Yunque Rainforest Tour
On this tour, you will be visiting Puerto Rico's number one tourist attraction. Not only will you get to hike through the rainforest (on paved trails), you will learn about many native flowers and plants, hear the Puerto Rican coqui singing, and you might just get caught in one of those magical, El Yunque rain showers! The Tour will start with a stop at El Portal Visitor Center which provides valuable insight into the surrounding wildlife before your journey continues along streams and misting waterfalls. La Coca Falls quickly comes into view with its magnificent drop of 85 feet (26 m) down onto large rock formations and a shallow-water pool. Next, you will be the climb the 98 spiral steps to the top of The Yokahú Tower standing at 69 feet tall, where views are unobstructed and far-reaching. At this vantage point you are 1,575 feet above sea level and it is a great place to relax before the last trail to La Mina Waterfalls begins. The hike to La Mina Waterfall will be approximately 1/2 hour long on a paved trail each way and after our tour we'll stop for lunch for local Puerto Rican food.
You'll see tree orchids, giant ferns, wild flowers, tropical hardwoods and spectacular waterfalls, and see panoramic views of the entire north-east coast. The tour stops for vistas of the most beautiful sights on this tour, so don't forget to bring your camera!
