Puerto Rico Tour Desk is excited to announce that we have added a new “Full Day Rainforest Adventure” tour to give you an opportunity to continue enjoying the rainforest post-Maria. This tour includes a visit to a cave, beach, and secret waterfall in the rainforest along with a moderate-to-difficult hike, amazing views, stop for an authentic lunch not included in price and exposure to some of the Puerto Rican culture.
This tour begins with a visit to the big mudslide in the area caused by Hurricane Maria (09/20/17). Afterwards, we will see the highest peak of the rainforest, El Toro Peak (3,523 feet [1,070 meters]). We will learn where Hurricane Maria first entered Puerto Rico and enjoy a picturesque view of the Caribbean Sea. If lucky, we can also see hang gliders and the Red Tail Hawk floating in the breeze.
Next, we will visit the waterfall that has no name. After being a local secret for years, PRTD is happy to now be able to serve tours to this hidden waterfall spot. The hike to the waterfall is about 25 minutes and will consist of trudging in mud, on uneven, rocky surfaces and through high grass. All this hard work will be worth it to see our local waterfall gem. For those who dare, we can climb up the waterfall to visit another waterfall with a natural, deep pool area where strong swimmers can jump into.
After relaxing and enjoying this site, we will head out to eat authentic Puerto Rican food. This restaurant features farm artifacts during the 20’s and 30’s. Finally, we will wrap up this tour with a visit to the cave and relax in a beach.
