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 Areyto
.  Access to the Forest is limited and we cannot guarantee the quality on those days.

EL YUNQUE GLOW IN THE DARK MUSHROOM
Transportation available upon request at extra cost.

Above:  two species
of Lampyridae
beetle larva.

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
environment, private groups are limited to a
maximum 10  participants per guide.   
Available
only on moonless nights, t
hree times per month.
Imagine this!
In Puerto Rico, the fireflies (above)
are known as
luciérnagas; the
Taínos called them
cocuya.
The click beetle to
the left is known
as
cucubano, the
same word used
by our Taínos in
the past.
