We visited Las Cabezas de Fajardo, the views, information and the knowledge of the guide was simply perfect. I am a Puerto Rico resident and was amazed with our nature and views. I recommend it.

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.
