My family and I (including a pre-teen and 2 grandparents) thoroughly enjoyed our Bio-bay tour. The waiting area after check-in allows exploration of the natural scenery with a small/inexpensive gift shop. But the tour?! The tour was the highlight of our vacation! Seriously, it was more than just the bio-bay. Our guide was a biologist who taught us a lot... More

We signed up for their night tour that included the bioluminescent bay. They begin by taking you on a tram tour up to a working lighthouse and giving us information about light pollution. We then took the tram to a boardwalk where we walked through the nature reserve to the bio bay. They gave us long PVC sticks that we... More

Our guide was a biology major of The University of San Juan and extremely knowledgeable about the history and ecology of the island. He was able to answer all the questions posed by my family about the animals and sea life. It was a great combination of walking and trolley tour. It was both informative and interesting. The views were... More

This is a great tour option when in the northeast PR area for a very reasonable price. They take you on an open air shuttle through the mangroves and then a short walking hike on a wooden bridge. You then make a stop at the ocean and then the lighthouse for great views and some educational fun. The only thing... More

I visited the place recently and everything was excellent. The service, the tour, the price. A great learning experience for kids and grown ups.

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
