Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve, Fajardo

4.6
#11 of 25 in Wildlife in Fajardo
Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve showcases seven different ecosystems--a bay, a rainforest, a dry forest, beaches, lagoons, coral reefs, and mangroves. The reserve features rare flora and is home to big iguanas, fiddler crabs, and all kinds of exotic birds. Take a walking tour of trails and boardwalks that lead through the park with bilingual guides. To get through the dry forest section, you'll need to board a tram. The reserve also offers bike and birding tours, as well as a night kayak tour, which provides a spectacle of green-glowing bioluminescent microorganisms. Visit the information center inside Puerto Rico's oldest lighthouse that's topped by a Spanish colonial tower. Climb to the observation deck for the views of the peninsula's steep, craggy cliffs.
