Cabezas de San Juan is a very important wildlife preserve, and Puerto Rico needs that kind of effort. The various habitats are a wonderful example of the diversity of this part of the island. It is understandable that those who manage it want to limit the impact of human visitors. But people who want to enjoy a real walk in... More

We signed up for the English Bioluminescence and Light Pollution Tour and had a great experience. 2 hours of education on light pollution and more on how bioluminescence works. We also got to travel up to the lighthouse and see incredible views. This was a great alternative to the kayaking (walking plus shuttle).

We took the bike tour and it was fun and challenging as there is a big long slope to climb. Good exercise as you learn about Puerto Rico ecosystem

You will also learn the importance of mangroves and the flora and fauna associated with this nature preserve. The tour starts at the entrance to the park and takes you on a cart to the mangroves. The tour guide will provide facts and information... More

This is a safe alternative if you are worried about getting in a kayak. The day I went the bay glow was minimal... More

We really enjoyed this tour! We had tried before but you must make reservations ahead of time. We did the English tour and our guide was very good and very personable--I think his name was Noel. It would be good if they gave GPS coordinates for their location as it is not easy to find. It is true you will... More
