Private night hike on August 28, 2008.
Magical Nights in El Yunque is a
concept that was born in 2001 as an
agreement between AdvenTours and the
US Forest Service to offer the night hikes
in El Portal de El Yunque where we have
security, parking, restrooms, and an
easy-moderate level effort trail.

Our basic tour starts at 6:00 PM (7:00 PM
during the Summer, June through
August) with a short interpretive talk
about El Yunque National Forest.    While
going to the entrance of the trail, we start
identifying fauna and flora as the
orchestral sounds of the Forest guide us
on our journey.  Safety measures are
explained at the beginning of the trail.
We supply small flashlights

With the option of El Yunque Hybrid you
combine the experience of seeing the
Forest during daylight (EcoTour) and the
night hike, or just dance under the star
with the rhythm of Taíno drums on our
Areytos, exclusively for private groups.

"A great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do." Walter Gagehot
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.
Celebrating sixteen years in the East region!

EVERYONE lucky enough to go to Puerto Rico.
It is an amazing experience- the rain forest at

more? The next time we go we are definitely
going back!!!!
