What To Expect

Catarata La Coca
At an elevation of 1, 476 feet (450 meters) above sea level, La Coca Falls is a spectacular waterfall! The waters of La Coca Falls drop 85 feet (26 meters) onto a huge rock formation at the bottom of the falls. This is an excellent spot to take photos.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Yokahu Observation Tower
This 69 foot tower was built by Dr. Frank H. Wadsworth (former Forest Supervisor and Director of IITF) in the early 1960’s. Four types of the forest can be viewed from Yokahú Tower: Colorado (smooth to the south), Tabonuco (irregular surrounding with white-leaved Yagrumos), Palm (on the steep slopes) and Cloud Forest (on the ridges) are all visible along with the coastline and all the way to the Virgin Islands on a clear day (10 mile + view). The dense old forest of the Baño de Oro Research Natural Area in the upper Mameyes Valley to the east may also be viewed.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Angelito Trail
This short trail (25 min hike each way) descends through Tabonuco trees in the lower montane forest to the federally designated “Wild and Scenic River,” the Río Mameyes. As you get closer, the roar of the rushing river pulls you onward to Las Damas Pool and other favorite swimming spots. This is a nice trail for families with younger children and school groups.

2 hours • Admission Ticket Included

Playa Luquillo
After the rainforest, we will board the bus again and head to the Luquillo Beach and Kiosks for two hours lunch break or playing in the sand, soaking in the sun's rays...
Finally, we will end the day and drive guests back to their initial pick-up location.
