El Yunque Off the Beaten Path Hiking Tour
Discover the hidden gems of the El Yunque rainforest with this 6.5-hour, ‘off-the-beaten’ path tour, perfect for those who have previously visited. Walk along secret trails and explore lesser-known waterfalls and swimming holes while discovering some of Puerto Rico’s wildlife, such as the Coqui tree frogs. Enjoy a day of swimming, hiking, and wildlife before heading back to the city.
What to Expect

This hidden gems tour begins with a pickup at your hotel before heading off to explore the lush El Yunque rainforest from a different perspective. Get your hiking boots ready and delight in a lesser-known hiking trail--approximately 35 minutes--to a secret natural pool with a waterfall.

Take your time to enjoy the local flora and fauna of the area, such as rainforest flowers and Coqui tree frogs, before taking a dip in the refreshing natural pools. Dry off before continuing on another 40-minute hike uphill.

Up next is a visit to the El Portal Center to learn about the tropical rainforest, the only one in the U.S. National Forest System.

After another short--and rocky--hike, finish up your adventure at a super-secret pool where you can enjoy natural water slides, swing from a rope into the river, and enjoy the refreshing water before heading back to your hotel.

This is not for the light hiker who wants to follow a well-drawn out path. This is for the true adventurer. I learned much about myself on this trip. I jumped from a rock-cliff into the river, Tarzan swung from a tree, rock climbed, learned...More

I believe this tour although amazing would be challenging for your younger children. The weather made the climb up and down difficult as it was muddy and hard to maneuver. Little legs would have a hard time through the... More
