Bano Oro - This man made stone dam of 18 feet (5.4 meters) deep pool was built for recreation purposed back in 1936 by the Civilian Conservation Corp. This stone and masonry dam over which water cascade is not for swim anymore since 1976. However it’s a beautiful man made pool filled with the waters from an upper branch of La Mina River.
Puente Roto is one of the most popular water play area on the Forest. Here you’ll have the opportunity for swimming in a natural rainforest river. The road provides easy hiking access to the river corridor, even though no trails currently exist.

Amazing tour and guides!
Jillian_W, 05-04-2021
We loved this tour! The rainforest nature walk requires shoes with good grip and is muddy, but so beautiful and fun! Had the best tour guides, loved Donatello and his partner(great sense of humor!) Kayaking at night is amazing!
A nice day

Trekking through the mud, jumping from a rope swing, and trying to reach a waterfall.
We only heard one instruction at a time. None of us knew we were hanging out in the swimming hole for so long. It was nice but I felt like we were waiting to be told just a little more information. Same with kayaking. She/He only told us the next thing, never an overview of our time. The website also left out good descriptions for what to expect.
Good for families

The overall experience for a family with younger kids was great. It wasn't too much for them to handle, especially an 8yr old with a heart condition. Short hike, fun swimming and cliff jumps, rope swings. Wasn't too difficult of a kayak excursion either. However, my reason for a three star is that hike and kayak were way off from what I felt was advertised. We hiked in maybe 10mins to a large pool, where we swam and it was a cool vibe. But that's all you really did on the hike, the rest of the couple hours for this portion was swimming. Didn't really get to see much else. The kayak tour was a crapshow to say the least. We didn't see really anything that we were hoping for like the bay lighting up. The kayaking itself was a fail of epic proportions. You go down a narrow canal for about 20mins, which is pretty cool. Mangroves on either side, cool scenery. However, going back when done with biobay is a madhouse. Going upstream, many novice kayakers, in complete darkness was a mess. I think they should hand out headlamps to everyone so you can see what's in front of you. The same mangroves that were cool in the dusk created an absolute pitch black kayak upstream in the evening. So again, I think overall it's a great trip for families with kids as it's not too strenuous and they can see a lot. For maybe older travelers it's not quite what I'd want for a excursion.
Not what expected

Rainforest very short walk, disappointed.
Luquillo Beach not the best beach to go.
Laguna Grande was nice, canoes and guide tourist . Bioluminescent lights?? Very hard to see them.
Awesome tour guide

The best thing about the tour was the driver and rainforest tour guide Rafael and Louie. They were amazing! Really sweet and funny! The tour itself wasn’t really what we expected. The rainforest portion was short and due to rainy weather we weren’t able to enjoy the river as much as we would have liked to. We stayed at the in between beach too long and It was very lackluster. Trash all around It due to inconsiderate tourist I’d assume, and there wasn’t much to do
There. As for the kayaking experience not all of the tour guides were helpful and there wasn’t much “glow” due again to rainy and cooler weather. I would do this tour again for Louie and Rafael but that’s it.
