  • From Fajardo: Full-Day Culebra Islands Catamaran Tour

    1. From Fajardo: Full-Day Culebra Islands Catamaran Tour

    Discover an area off the beaten path on this full-day catamaran tour to the Cordillera Islands. Departing from Puerto Del Rey Marina in Fajardo, the 45-50 minute journey on the high-speed catamaran will take you to the beautiful Cordillera Islands, off the coast of San Juan. Upon arriving at the Cordillera Islands, the captain will decide which beach will have the best conditions for the day, usually Flamenco or Culebrita beach. Spend the afternoon swimming, snorkeling, beachcombing, sunbathing, or relaxing on the roof deck. Throughout the day, the bar on board the catamaran is open for all guests with Piña Coladas, Rum Punch, sodas, iced teas, and juices. A sumptuous buffet lunch is served on board, including fresh fruit, freshly baked bread, sliced meats, sliced cheeses, salads, chips, and cookies.

    The island was so beautiful! It a long commute that I really didn’t care for. It was an hour bus ride from my hotel to the location. Then, it was an hour boat ride to the private island. If you get motion sickness, I highly recommend buying motion sickness medicine and sit outside the boat for the ride. Once you get to the island, you forget about everything. The staff was friendly and very helpful if you are not a swimmer. It was open bar which I loved! And the snack they gave was pretty good. 10/10 recommendation.

  • Fajardo: All Levels Snorkeling Tour to Icacos Island

    2. Fajardo: All Levels Snorkeling Tour to Icacos Island

Music and viewing sites are part of this experience, with the El Yunque National Forest and the Fajardo Lighthouse being among the most eye catching. At the first stop, enjoy a guided snorkeling experience suitable for your own level of experience and explore the marine life. After the snorkeling, the bar opens so you can try out refreshing signature drinks such as Piña Colada with or without rum. A deli-style buffet...

    Everything was super good. Way cooler than. I was expecting and the crew was the best. I am 200% recommending them. The snorkeling, the boat, the island, even the people you meet there.

  • San Juan: El Yunque Rainforest and Bio Bay Combo Tour

    3. San Juan: El Yunque Rainforest and Bio Bay Combo Tour

    Following a morning pickup at your accommodation, embark in direction of your bio bay and rainforest combo adventure. Enjoy the beautiful views along the scenic route through the Northside of the island and learn some facts about the areas from your guide. Make a stop in the town of Luquillo and enjoy some fresh local fruits before continuing the journey to Puerto Rico's majestic Rainforest. El Yunque is without a doubt Puerto Rico’s greatest natural wonder. It is the only tropical rainforest, and the most studied forest in the United States National Forest System. It is the most biologically diverse forest, hosting hundreds of plants and animals - some of which are only found here in Puerto Rico. Once there, hike through natural trails lined with beautiful flora and fauna, and some river wading, until you'll arrive at a hidden gem located in the heart of the rainforest. Enjoy the b...

    Communication was great! Easy transportation. Instructions say to wear swimsuit, but, really a pair of sport legging type shorts would be ideal. Highly recommended lightweight (dri fit) type clothing/shirt (no cotton). You will get fully submersed in the water. Wear old tennis shoes (& old socks) with good grip & plan to discard them or machine wash them due to the soupy rainforest mud. I wore a pair of closed to Keen hiking sandals w/ great grip & they were perfect! The guides were great & take pics & email them to you. You will leave everything on the bus during both excursions. Only brought a bottled water along on trail. No lunch provided, but they stop for smoothies on the way & have a great fruit spread (pineapple, papaya, mango, avocado) for a mid-day snack. Supper (you are responsible for the payment) is early (3:30/4) and was pretty good. Your guide will share a menu & get your order once you arrive to the rainforest. Rainforest portion was amazing! Kayaking was just ok. Enjoy

We had a great trip with Hectmar and her team. They were very attentive to all and Hectmar was a great guide by the coral reefs. The drinks were excellent and the beach at Icacos was absolutley amazing. We had our 11 year old with us and she had the time of her life. I would definitely recommend this trip.

This was a fantastic trip! Monica, Pedro and the Captain made sure we had fun and stayed safe. They have a smaller boat than the catamaran but they got us to a cool area on the reef. All the equipment was sanitized as well. Monica spoke of the history of the islands as well. Over all, highly recommend!!

Everything was super good. Way cooler than. I was expecting and the crew was the best. I am 200% recommending them. The snorkeling, the boat, the island, even the people you meet there.

Very friendly tour guides! The tour was great. Expectations met!

All I have to say this experience was off the hook
