The Perfect Getaway with Snorkeling is easily the most memorable tour we have taken in Puerto Rico. Rafael was the perfect tour guide - knowledgeable, passionate and treated us like family. We went to a little visited beach in Arecibo, in North Puerto Rico. We were the only people on the half-mile long beach! After some climbing, we jumped off a small cliff into crystal clear waters to snorkel among beautiful coral and fish. From there, we visited some caves in the same area. The scenery was breathtaking - with natural arches reaching into the sea, sea turtles swimming amid crashing waves, and spectacular sandstone rock formations.
After stopping to buy some local fruit, we went to a private estate near San Sabastian, in the central part of the island. There we swam in two isolated waterfalls in the middle of a rain forest. Although we were told there could be other people there, we were the only people in this private paradise. It was the perfect way to wash off the salt sea water, while exploring two beautiful pools, each at the base a waterfall. My daughter and I climbed to rocks behind a waterfall and even explored a small underwater cavern! For the short time we were there, it was our own private getaway in Puerto Rico.
After dinner on the beach highlighted by a magnificent sunset, we were taken back to our hotel - exhausted and thoroughly satisfied. If you can arrange to take this tour, it is not one to be missed! Absolutely FANTASTIC!
