We loved the tour, our family learned so much about the areas and the different plants, but the views from the light house are amazing.

We went to Puerto Rico to see the Bioluminescent bay. However, we could not do the kayak tour this time. All the boat tours were fully booked (or they do not reply emails/calls). We found this walking tour, which turned out to be wonderful. The guide was great. It turned out to be more than the bioluminescent bay, which, of... More

Very educational and great learning opportunity about the fauna of this part of Puerto Rico. It's graet for kids and families, as well as anyone else interested in learning about ecosystems. Be sure to call ahead and make reservations, as the tours are scheduled for specific times and fill up at peak times.

First of all you can ONLY book reservations ONLINE! We booked about 2 weeks before and chose the NIGHT Bioluminescence Tour. They have several daytime tours available as well but since we were traveling with a 3, 5, and 7 year old and we could not do the kayaking tours (to see the lagoon) we did the night tour. You...

The "Meet Las Cabezas de San Juan" tour was fantastic. Signing up for an account on my phone was a bit challenging, so I should have done that on a computer at home. Signing up for the tour itself was actually simple on a phone browser. Highlights of the tour were: looking out to sea at the two story lighthouse,... More

For those of you that like to experience the real Puerto Rico and the beautiful mangroves etc. this is a worth wile visit but while on that end of the island visit local restaurants just down the road. You will not be disappointed.

We really wanted to visit this place but found out that you must make reservations online in advance. When we tried to book, they were full for the time we were visiting, We went to the park to try and visit at least the lighthouse but were told that you could only enter if you had booked a tour. I'm... More

I wanted to see the bioluminescence without kayaking in the dark. I found out about this trip online and decided to book it. They offer trips in Spanish and English. I didn't expect to learn as much as I did. We not only learned about the bioluminescence and light pollution, we also visited the second oldest lighthouse in Puerto Rico.... More

Looking for something to do near Fajardo - go to this park to get a great overview of the area. Make a reservation - can do online - price was only $7.75. Tours are held in Spanish and English, separately. Our guide was very knowledgeable - this tour was certainly well worth it!

Due to light conditions I could not get any photos, and only short dark videos of this experience. It is one experience that you can only enjoy first hand. Nothing in the world can take you close to being there. It is a whole adventure walking the forest in the dark, walking the boardwalk and over the lagoon at complete... More
