Las Cabezas de San Juan Natural Reserve
Fajardo, Puerto Rico
Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve is managed by the Fideicomiso de Conservación of Puerto Rico (www.fideicomiso.org). It is one of the most important natural areas of the Island, due to the many different ecological communities that are so close to each other. There are weekly tours to visitors and students who come to learn more about the natural wonders of the Island. Admission is by reservation only. Once there, you must register at a picturesque wood pavilion where you will find valuable information about the reserve, bathrooms, gift shop, comfortable chair swings, and a lookout to the beach, perfect for photos. The tour is by hour and you must be punctual. First you will visit a boardwalk that crosses a mangrove forest. The next stop is in Los Lirios beach, a rocky beach. The last stop is in a lighthouse built in the 1880 and beautifully restored recently. There you will enjoy a stunning view of the East coast of Puerto Rico. At every stop the tour guide explains in detail the ecosystems and answers the questions of the participants. The tour lasts approximately two and a half hours and you will be transported by trolley. We recommend you bring water, comfortable shoes and use sunscreen. Open to the public Wednesday through Sunday. Cost: adult-$10, students with ID-$7, seniors over 65-$7. For reservations call 787-722-5882. There is parking available.
