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

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.

Unbelievable but I live in PR and it was the first visited to the reserve. We went to do our annual coast cleaning with the scuba dogs. It was incredible that people actually Manage to leave trash in a beautiful place. Did not make it to the light house but the next time. Hopefully soon. The beach is so clear... More

First of all and foremost we had an incredible tour guide, Noel. We are from Florida so we have similar vegetation, but we were so educated. We were so impressed with his knowledge. Our 2 1/2 hr tour was such a great value. Gorgeous views, beautiful home through the mangroves, sights and scents like you can't imagine! The lighthouse was... More
