This is a relatively new tour that leaves @ 7PM and enables those that don't want to kayak in the dark to the biolumenscent bay to experience the lights of the bay water, tour a beautiful lighthouse on a hilltop with fantastic evening views and take a guided trail walk whereby the guide finds animal life that comes out at...

We happen to walk by this place and go home and look it up online. There is only 1 time a day for a English speaking tour but they do run 2 trams for this 2:00 time. It does sell out so I recommend getting tickets early. The tour lasted 2 hours. Our guide was very informative. We learned a... More

We took the afternoon tram/walking/lighthouse tour, having booked through paralanaturaleza.org (site doesn't work well for tablets or phones, and you have to establish an account before you can try to book a tour). It's an easy tour: tram ride, 20-minute walk along a boardwalk, and a visit to the lighthouse where, among other things, you can see bioluminescent plankton. We... More

Is a beautiful place and I have a nice day here. I really calm and you can learn about the nature in the coast.

A great activity for my first day in Puerto Rico. It is very informative and this was good to have as I went on other excursions. The views are gorgeous and the trolley ride was a welcome retreat in the heat of the day. The tour lasted a little over 2 hours for about $13. The entrance was a little... More

Very pleasant tour, one daily in English. See a variety of things: Mangroves, a rough pebble beach, and an old lighthouse. Inside the lighthouse, there are a few additional things --- we were given sachets with water and dinoflagellates in a dark room, so we could see the "bioluminescence" without having to take any kayak tours into the lagoon. In... More

We wanted to visit the bio bay, and waited too long to reserve a kayaking tour. Upon our arrival, we realized that we would have loved to visit the reserve during the day. Unfortunately this was at the end of our trip, so we did not have that opportunity. Our tour consisted of three parts. First we went on the... More

Only $13 each one and lasts for 2 hours. Pretty fun and educational. Trolley gets you around the area with 3 stops: the light house, the seashore, the mangroves. Not much walk, effortless. Worth trying!

This place in Fajardo is serene, lovely, and unspoiled by massive tourism. it is also very educational if you get a good tour guide. The tour starts at the administration building, which has a security gate, and one has to provide proof of ticket purchase to the guard stationed outside. Once inside, our eight fellow tourists and my wife and... More
