Do the $20 kayak and bike package... totally worth it Perfect way to experience a hidden corner of the enchanted Isle.... great half day trip[ from San Juan or Humacao if you have a rental car... Not a tourist trap..ust a worthwhile way to interact with nature. Kristina is a great host.

This is a beautiful park and the best way for family groups to see the bioluminese bay. The English tours fills fast so must be set up ahead of arrival. Confirmation will come back in Spanish. The tour is at 7 pm, best on a dark night. You walk in the dark and experience how much your eyes will adjust... More

My husband and I took our three grade-school boys on an English-language tour called "The lighthouse and the natural connections of the coast," which we signed up for a month in advance on the website of "Para la Naturaleza." I was worried that our energetic kids might get bored, but they had a wonderful time! The tram carried us around... More

I really wanted to see the bio bay during our trip to PR. my family kayaks and thought we could do a kayaking tour, but I did not like the idea of kayaking in the dark with a bunch of people who do not know what they are doing. That brought us to the night tour. This tour brought us... More

I was actually reluctant to book this tour as I thought it was going to be boring, but I was pleasantly surprised. The guide was incredibly knowledgable and engaged the group the entire time. Learned a great deal about the various ecosystems within the reserve and saw a great deal of wildlife including a small school of barracuda in the... More

Was worth the money, very informative and a great way to see the Bioluminescent by without having to kayak, although if you're up to it that would be a fun way to see it too. There was a three part tour, the lighthouse where you learned about the bioluminescence and other wildlife like the sea turtles. Part 2 was hiking... More

I loved the beauty and variety of this nature reserve. Our group went on the two hour tram tour which was... More
