Full description
Begin your journey of El Yunque National Forest at the start of the Angelito trail, where you will be greeted by your guide who will take you on your nocturnal walking tour. Marvel at the height of the hardwood trees surrounding you, listen to the croaking coqui frogs, smell the blooming flowers' fragrance, and feel the misty rainforest atmosphere around you as you walk through the lush greenery. Enjoy the trails and swimming holes free of other tourists, as this tour is the only one permitted into the forest after 6 PM. Learn about the rainforest's diverse flora and fauna from your expert guide, 60% of which only becomes active after dark, and see the native Puerto Rican cucullo fireflies light up the rainforest, among many other bright insects and animals.

An amazing time especially looking for frogs, giant snails, lizards, scorpions and tarantulas at night. Our guide knew almost everything about the rainforest and told you about all the different trees and floral plants on the way down. Very informative and a must if you like the outdoors.
