Las Cabezas de San Juan (El Faro Lighthouse) Tour
On the northeastern tip of the island in the municipality of Fajardo we find Las Cabezas de San Juan Natural Reserve.
Located on 445 acres of land acquired and maintained by The Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico, the reserve is
named after three promontories that jut out into the Northern Atlantic – “cabeza” meaning headland. The main tour
is a two-hour trolley ride that guides you along the reserve with three stops of interest. Among those are the
boardwalk trail through a mangrove forest, Playa Lirios, and El Faro de Fajardo. Situated on the highest point of Cape
San Juan, the stone building was the second lighthouse erected on the island by the Spanish. Officially lit on May 2,
1882, it has been operating uninterrupted to this day.

Puerto Rico Museum of Art and Old San Juan Shopping or Historical Tour
Are you looking for a little quiet culture in the heart of San Juan? The PR Museum of Art (MAPR) is a 130,000-squarefoot neoclassical building from the 1920s formerly known as the San Juan Municipal Hospital. It is one of the biggest
museums in the Caribbean and a local house for collections from the 17th century. The journey start by a guided tour
by one of the museum docents, starting with the ground floor devoted to classic art work. One wing contains a
gallery with paintings, wood carvings and religious articles from the 17th to 19th centuries. The opposite wing’s
gallery has more recent works from 1930-1960. After this artistic adventure, we are headed to Old San Juan – the
oldest city in the US. Guests will have an opportunity to do some shopping and have lunch on their own. A popular
option is to have our staff pre-arrange lunch at one of Old San Juan’s fine restaurants.

El Yunque Rainforest Hiking Tour
El Yunque Rain Forest is the only rain forest in the U.S. National Forest System. El Yunque named after the good
Taino spirit Yukiyu receives over 100 billion gallons of annual rainfall and harbors 240 tree species. Rivers and
trickling streams collect into gentle pools of rainwater as millions of tiny inch-long frogs called coqui, found only in
Puerto Rico sing their sweet lullabies. After a scenic drive to the start-off point and a brief orientation by one of our
experienced step-aboard guides, you will commence on an exhilarating 1 ½ hour hike through the wilderness of the
rain forest. The actual hike will be held on marked U.S. Forest Service trails. All our guides are experienced hikers,
who are familiar with the trails and areas.
