Unbelievable but I live in PR and it was the first visited to the reserve. We went to do our annual coast cleaning with the scuba dogs. It was incredible that people actually Manage to leave trash in a beautiful place. Did not make it to the light house but the next time. Hopefully soon. The beach is so clear... More

First of all and foremost we had an incredible tour guide, Noel. We are from Florida so we have similar vegetation, but we were so educated. We were so impressed with his knowledge. Our 2 1/2 hr tour was such a great value. Gorgeous views, beautiful home through the mangroves, sights and scents like you can't imagine! The lighthouse was... More

The nature reserve contains the bioluminescent bay (which I reviewed separately). Guided tours are provided here. It's worth visiting.

Great non-profit eco-tours...reserve in advance if you can...Guides are knowledgeable and best views of Fajardo and surrounds. Some tours are kid friendly and done via a small open air tour bus.

Get ready for a long walk and sun. First you has to call and made a reservation. Show on your day and let mother nation and the guide walk you true most of the east coast of the island has to offer. A few hour walk, learn, teach, talk, see and enjoy something extra ordinaries. Visit the Lighthouse and history... More

Loved the sea kayaks in to see the nightly natural beauty. It was amazing to see the water light up. This is a must see when in Fajardo. Pick a night without too much moonlight.

We did not realize that the bio-luminescent bay is actually part of this beautiful reserve. By good chance, we scheduled a tour of the reserve for the afternoon before we were kyaking in the bay at night. The tour is primarily by tram, driven by a delightful, informative nature guide. There are 7 different eco systems, including sandy and rocky... More

This nature reserve is just amazing. The views are gorgeous. The tour is fantastic. Excellent for all ages. Kids and adults fall in love with nature as they learn about the different ecosystems and as they observe and interact with nature.

We had a very interesting tour. The staff were so kind and helpful sharing their knowledge. Gorgeous views from the Lighthouse. I highly recommend a visit to Las Cabezas de San Juan in Fajardo. It's a different but great experience. Do not forget bug repellent, sunblock, and a hat. And remember, if you want to do any of the trips... More
