Know More about this tour
Your tour departs from centrally-located Fajardo hotels at 10am to visit Puerto Rico's number one tourist attraction. Not only will you get to hike through the rain-forest (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 climb the 98 spiral steps to the top of The Yokah Tower standing at 69 feet tall (21m), where views are unobstructed and panoramic. At this vantage point you are 1,575 feet (481m) 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-hour long on a paved trail.
** Due to hurricane Maria some areas of the Rainforest are currently closed. Rest assured, we continue to offer a similar experience on alternate trails and areas of the Forest and its surroundings **
