EL YUNQUE NATIONAL FOREST
with a private Certified Interpretive Tour Guide
Due to the number of people visiting El Yunque National Forest during the Holy Week/Weekend (Wednesday through Sunday, including Good Friday and
Easter) and the
month of July (we have four holidays, July 4, July 17, July 25, and July 27), we DO NOT OFFER tours to El Yunque other than the Night
Hike and/or Taíno Ceremony
.  Access to the Forest is limited and we cannot guarantee the quality on those days.

In Puerto Rico, the fireflies (left)
are known as
luciérnagas; the
Taínos called them
cocuya.
The click beetle to the right is known as
cucubano, the same word used by our Taínos.
..
Bioluminiscense has been observed in El Yunque during our night hikes in
terrestrial animals (fireflies, click beetles, glow worms) and fungi.  All new
information gathered on each hike is shared with scientists from the Forest
or universities.  Be part of this effort an join us during moonless nights.
With the staff of PUERTO RICO DE AVENTURA MAGZINE.
There are seven confirmed bioluminescent species of macro-fungi in El
Yunque National Forest.  These fungi are capable of glowing in the dark.  
Join us in the search of these unique mushrooms.  We will also see other
forms of bioluminescense, plus the non-bioluminescent coquí.

Special weather conditions should take place to see the glow-in-the-dark
mushrooms.  Due to the nature of this private nature walk on a fragile
habitat, groups are limited to a maximum of 4 to 6 participants.

Available only on moonless nights, three times per month.
Celebrating sixteen years in the East region!
Imagine this!
