Reserva Natural Cabezas de San Juan showcases seven different ecosystems--a bay, a rainforest, a dry forest, beaches, lagoons, coral reefs, and mangroves. The reserve features rare flora and is home to big iguanas, fiddler crabs, and all kinds of exotic birds. Take a walking tour of trails and boardwalks that lead through the park with bilingual guides. To get through the dry forest section, you'll need to board a tram. The reserve also offers bike and birding tours, as well as a night kayak tour, which provides a spectacle of green-glowing bioluminescent microorganisms. Visit the information center inside Puerto Rico's oldest lighthouse that's topped by a Spanish colonial tower. Climb to the observation deck for the views of the peninsula's steep, craggy cliffs. A visit to Reserva Natural Cabezas de San Juan represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Fajardo road trip tool to plot your vacation.

  • Love that place
  • Loved the tour. March was perfect. Beautiful weather, a little windy by the ocean but that felt actually really good. Our guide was incredible. Super knowledgeable about the environment, knew any plant or organism and had an answer for any question. Later on we joked about wishing to have him around for more questions we had when we hiked to Playa Escondida.
