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.
