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.

Great time!
My wife and I had a really good time. Staff was great. The walk was not as bad as I thought it would be. Make sure and take socks or water shoes.

Transportation Rainforest and Luquillo Beach Adventure in San Juan
We had a lot of fun at the rocks in the rainforest. Luquillo Beach was dirty. Maybe recommend a different stretch of the beach or a different, cleaner beach all together. Our tour guide, Pedro was AWESOME! He made the trip! Would recommend this but would also recommend bringing water shoes so it’s easier to walk along the rocks in the water at the rainforest.

Our tour guide, Pedro, was the best! He was super knowledgeable, funny and probably one of the nicest people I've ever met. The food we stopped for before getting to the Rainforest was delicious. Everything was beautiful. I would absolutely recommend this tour to others.

I enjoyed this experience! We got rained on by the time we reached the beach though so I wish it had lasted longer! But the drivers were nice as well.

El Yunque Rainforest, Waterslide, Beach, Dine and Shop Adventure with transport
This was truly an amazing experience, I went by myself and the tour guide was named Pedro and he was great! I recommend booking with Pedro if you can. There are hikes along the way so make sure you where shoes with grip, it’s slippery in some places. Ultimately, I had a great time.

Transportation Rainforest and Luquillo Beach Adventure in San Juan
We had devin as our tour guide and he was amazing. I loved that on the way there he gave us some history of Puerto Rico. The water at the rainforest was so clear and perfect for the hot day. Just be prepared for a little bit of rock climbing. Other than that the trip was perfect

Sweet and smart lady. I wish the description mentioned the national park is EL YUNQUE. The beach was beautiful. They also had the magnificent option for us to go kayaking last minute which I loved.

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.
