Parks and nature in Puerto Rico

Top parks

Forest
“Route 191 leads to the main entrance that anyone with a rental car can drive on their own, consult with park rangers and viewing the trailhead maps for casual hiking trails. However, its hidden secrets would involve smooth Natural waterslides, Ropeswings, epic heart-thumping Jumps, Waterfalls into deep swimmable waterholes and other backwoods shenanigans are best done with a guide. Janice and I have daily departures from our Airbnb to the backwoods experiences. This forest is on almost everyone's PR bucket list. You will get rained on in the Rainforest! If you drive to the top of the mountain, it can be chilly in winter months. You will hike through dense misty foggy cloud-capped elevations. You will be lucky to sneak a peek at the panoramic views. The flora and fauna are gorgeous and the elevated part boasts its own set of grand waterfalls and natural features. ”

Parking is $5 and there is a restaurant with local foods, beer, and cocktails. Casual hiking with epic waterfalls. You must have a car or hire transportation to get here. Great morning activity, lunch and go to a place called Tropical trail rides for a Coastal sunset beach ride on horseback. ”

“A true surfer’s heaven, Domes is located between a lighthouse and Puerto Rico's inactive nuclear reactor. With turquoise waters and golden sand, this beach is a great spot for whale watching during the winter. Although it is not a place to go swimming, it is a fun beach to lay back and relax, watch surfing competitions, and even take a horseback riding tour. ”

“This southwestern halfmoon-shaped gem will leave you in awe with its breathtaking waters and scenery. It takes a little bit of hiking to get there, but once you arrive, you will see how magnificent its dramatic landscape is. Playa Sucia is perfect for either a lazy day under the sun or an adventure exploring the astonishing surroundings. You can visit the lighthouse that is located right next to Playa Sucia and if you keep hiking you will find a natural stone bridge where you can take astonishing pictures.”

Trail
“Right on the roaring Atlantic coast is Cueva del Indio, or Indian Cave, named after the indigenous hieroglyphs found carved into the rocks. The entrance fee is $5 and will give you access to impressive cliffs, views of crashing waves, and a natural bridge formed from rocks. Prior to Hurricane María there was a ladder leading down to the cave which is now gone. Experienced climbers can still make the descent down to the cave where there are rock carvings made by the Taínos, the tribe that lived on the island before the arrival of Columbus and the Spanish. Note: Parque Nacional de las Cavernas del Rio Camuy, which offers access to the largest cave network in the Western hemisphere, is currently closed. A potential reopening date has not been set. However, there are many other exciting and beautiful caves to visit throughout the island.”
