The Basics

With El Yunque National Forest blooming in the background, it’s easy to see why this beautiful beach is such a draw. A fringe reef protects Luquillo Beach from raging surf, so families find it a great place to bring young kids who are often found frolicking in the calm water. Local food kiosks that dot the area are frequented for beachside eating, though locals often set up their own grills and have hearty barbecues. Beach umbrellas and lounge chairs are available for rent, as are kayaks for personal use or kayaking tours. Guided tours that include Luquillo Beach depart from Old San Juan and may combine the beach stop with visits to El Yunque, the Camuy Caves, and the bioluminescent bay.

El Yunque Rainforest, Waterslide, Beach, Dine and Shop Adventure with transport
This is a very fun excursion for family and friends. My only complaint, as you can see from The photo, is that we were not given life jackets. Thankfully the river was not too deep but it would have made me feel a lot safer if our tour guide provided life jackets like most of the other tours did, in blue. You can not know what to expect out there and safety should be first. Otherwise. Great trip, great host, and great food stout stop.

Pedro and the driver were awesome! We were not able to do the rock slide, swim in the river, or go to the beach due to the weather and flooding. Safety first 🥰 They couldn’t control the weather unfortunately. Lol… However, Pedro, the driver, and the tour company did everything within their power to make it up to us.

Despite missing the pick up spot, our host Ryan (aka Papi Chulo) drove to us and provided a great time for everyone. The rainforest was tons of fun and his recommendations at Luqillo Beach were on point. Overall a great time.

When to Get There

Puerto Rico is generally very busy in December through February, as it’s a hot spot for those escaping the mainland United States’ frigid winters. Aim to visit in the spring, after the tourist glut and before the hot, rainy season. Luquillo Beach can get quite crowded on summer weekends, when it fills up with local families.
