...Five years ago, we went to the bioluminescent bay at Las Cabezas de San Juan. Then, we did not have the time to visit the reserve. This time, our family group of 9 took the time to do so. I certainly would put this high on the list of places to see when visiting Puerto Rico. Everyone in our group spaning 70 + years enjoyed themselves. We took the English tour and had an excellent, friendly Puerto Rican guide who was knowledgeable, spoke good English and was quite passionate about preserving this part of Puerto Rico for the future.
...Each tour group is limited by the seating capacity of the trams that move you around. You must book in advance which we did with no trouble from the States. We received verification and all went smoothly. The trip was full which showed the necessity of pre-registering. We aslo found that we could get in to park no sooner than 30 minutes before our scheduled tour. The limited parking space dictates this. If you arrive early, you can visit a nearby beach or restaurant.
...The tour itself was well organized with the guide smoothly taking us from one place to another. The walking tour was nicely done over a wooden walkway that allowed you to get closup to the plants of the area. The guide did an excellent job of describing the various flora and fauna.
...The lighthouse tour was nicely done. A display in a dark room showing flourescent organisms gave at least a hint of what you would see at night when kayacking through the bioluminescent bay. From someone who has done this, you really have to experience it first hand to really appreciate it.
...There was nothing about the tour that I did not like. The views are spectacular. The way it is arranged, most anyone can take it. We had a 3 year old as well as a 76 year old and both survived quite well.
...This place is so easy to get to that anyone visiting Puerto Rico should consider taking the tour. Be sure to pre-register over the internet and enjoy yourself while learning a bit about the biology of Puerto Rico.
