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.

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.

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

Had a lovely time when we found this secluded beach on our way to San Juan Nature reserve. very clean, locals was very helpful, jet ski tours, and a beautiful sunset scene. One thing , please have your bug repellant on hand. But the beach is worth the bites.
