We were in Puerto Rico with a 9 month old, so this was a great way for us to see some of the nature sites. Our tour guide was very good, and we learned a lot. It is a very pretty area.

We weren't sure what to expect on the tour. We were intrigued by the fact the tour was limited due to conservancy reasons. We were pleasantly surprised by the educational benefits of this tour. Waldamor (sp) and his companion, although young, were well informed and knew what they were talking about. The background on Puerto Rico, the Mangroves, the lighthouse,... More

We learned all about the biobay & light pollution on our tour. The biobay sparkled has we moved sticks in the water. We saw some fish swimming with a trail of glow. Our guide from our March 29th tour told us that it was brighter during our tour than it had been the previous week. We hiked through the woods... More

Did not know what to expect, was really surprised and pleased by the staff and the information that our young guide imparted to us. The price for this little trolley trip was super cheap. Our young guide who's job it is on the nature preserve to catalog the green iguana's (NOT Native species!) egg sites was truly a great representative... More

We took the daytime Las Cabezas, English tour during our spring break visit to Puerto Rico. Because the other adventures we had booked were quite a bit more expensive, I mistakenly didn't think this tour was going to be that impressive for the cheap price---I was wrong! The natural beauty was breathtaking--especially the rocky beach area. The guide was so... More

Very interesting tour of the headlands, including the lighthouse, mangrove swamps and more. Reserve online via their website. Limited number of English-language tours, so plan ahead unless your Spanish is really good. We took a Spanish-language tour, and while we do speak some Spanish, the local accent was hard for us to understand, although all the guides are very nice... More

Cool tour. We visited the lighthouse, stirred up some bioluminescence in the lagoon and went on a short nature trail. Guide was excellent.

Visiting the reserve was a great way to be introduced to Puerto Rican ecology. You must make a reservation and we took the "meet the reserve" tour. .Our guide was very friendly and so excited about everything he was showing us. The tour takes around 2 hours. We saw a variety of things from the ocean, to the lighthouse built... More

We took a night tour, visiting the lighthouse, the bioluminescent lagoon, and the beach. It was very educational -- we learned not only about bioluminescence, but about light pollution as well. We were impressed at their efforts to reduce the impact of light pollution for the benefit of the environment and the animals such as sea turtles. On a walkway... More
