Continue enjoying the rainforest post-Maria with this full-day tour. This tour includes a visit to a cave, beach, and secret waterfall in the rainforest along with a moderate-to-difficult hike, amazing views, authentic lunch, 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, you will see the highest peak of the rainforest, El Toro Peak (3,523 feet [1,070 meters]). You will learn where Hurricane Maria first entered Puerto Rico and enjoy a picturesque view of the Caribbean Sea. If lucky, you can also see hang gliders and the Red Tail Hawk floating in the breeze.
Next, you will visit the secret waterfall. 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 the local waterfall gem. If you dare, you can climb up the waterfall to visit another waterfall with a natural, deep pool area where strong swimmers can jump into. You MUST know how to swim.
After relaxing and enjoying this site, you will eat authentic Puerto Rican food. This restaurant features farm artifacts during the 20’s and 30’s. This tour will end with a visit to a cave and beach.
