My family visits PR every year usually during the spring break/holy week time. We have done many trips & tours but Excursiones Ecoboriken is truly special because of the owner/operator Jose. We did a day tour of the waters off La Parguera. We were driving all the way from Patillas & got more-than-a-bit delayed. Fortunately, Jose was only meeting our... More

We found Jose through another website which detailed the morning kayak tour. We met Jose at 7:15 am on Monday morning. We called him last minute and was able to accommodate for both of us. Growing up in Ponce, I have visited La Parguera many times but never had had kayak through the bay or experienced seeing so much nature... More

I found Jose in a travel magazine in my hotel room, after a very disappointing tour with "West Divers" of the biolumenescent bay the night before. It was the last and third night of my short getaway to P.R. and I was determined to make it with it! Jose agreed to just take me for a very reasonable price. I... More

Jose is such a nice guys and has years of experience and knowledge about the environment and area. We did the night bioluminiscent bay tour. So much fun and to learn what we did and to be able to swim in the bay was killer. By all means give him and call and book a trip. Well worth it!

We heard about this kayak trip through a sailing trip we took in San Juan. So we scheduled a night kayak trip to see the bioluminiscent bay. Jose was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was able to explain the science behind all the things we toured since he has a biology degree. My husband and I got to swim in... More

First, the best way to get in touch with Jose is to go through trip advisor, under his company's info, it says email company. After that ...what can I say... an adventure company (Jose) that is really driven by the owner's passion for the area. He is a really great guy and so knowledgeable about La Paguera and the keys...

Jose led my girlfriend and I out on a biobay tour. We had a great time. Jose taught us a lot about the natural wildlife around us. We saw the bioluminesent water light up and I even got to jump in and see the water glow around me. Jose also found a few HUGE starfish and a sea cucumber. It... More

Getting this trip set up was a little difficult. Their website is currently down (in the process of revamping), and email communication was not always returned as quickly as one would hope. However, once we were able to speak on the phone, things got arranged just fine. We finally got our trip squared away, and had a great time. The... More

I have been visiting La Parguera for years and Jose taught me things I didn't know about this amazing natural preserve. Must see and do when you visit!
