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.

Very good with the walk through the rain forest would’ve been excellet
The water slide, but with a nice walk in the rain forest would’ve been the perfect trip. Maybe next time it would be nice f it was added to the trip

The excursion had twists and turns from start to finish. I really enjoyed the liberating moments of sliding down a waterfall and jumping into a beautiful river! The tour guide always kept me informed about safety protocols and also encouraged me and others to have fun. Much needed fun in the Sun!

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.
