In addition to their ATV and horseback adventures, you can also enjoy Carabalí Bar & Grill, which serves steaks, seafood, and the best of Puerto Rican cuisine. There is a gift shop for purchasing accessories, souvenirs, clothes, and more.

El Yunque National RainForest

Named after the benevolent Indian spirit Yuquiyu, El Yunque is the only rainforest in the US National Forest System. Discover the natural wonder of El Yunque as you hike along the many trails, take a dip in one of the waterfall pools, and enjoy the beautiful surroundings

El Morro Fort and Fort San Cristóbal

El Morro  Fort and Fort San Cristóbal, officially known as Fuerte San Felipe del Morro, overlooks the entrance to San Juan Bay. Visit hidden passages, gaze over the 60-foot tall walls at the ocean, and troll on the lawns where soldiers once marched. El Morro is a National Historic Site in the U. S. National Park Service. Fort San Cristóbal stands guard at what was the eastern gate to the walled city of Old San Juan. Covering 27 acres, this is the largest fort built by the Spanish in the New World and is the ‘sister fort’ to El Morro.

The Bacardi Rum Distillery

Is the largest in the world; visitors are treated to a fascinating guided tour of the facilities at the "Cathedral of Rum." Everything from the vast fermentation vats to the high-speed bottling machinery is at work and on display. Here you can sample the world-famous rum and buy souvenirs and Bacardi products at the gift shop.

Old San Juan

A visit to the so-called "Walled City" is like traveling back in time. As the second oldest town in America, a walk up and down blue cobblestone streets of Old San Juan is a gateway into the core of Puerto Rican history and culture. The charming pastel-colored colonial architecture and military forts blend in peace with modern, slower-paced life for an authentic Puerto Rican experience. Whether you’re a history savvy, a cultural buff, or a sightseeing enthusiast, here is a list of landmarks and iconic places that you should not miss while visiting this remarkable city: 

Parque de Bombas

Located at the Plaza Las Delicias in the municipality of Ponce, it originally served as the main exhibit pavilion for an agricultural trade fair but was soon thereafter commissioned to house the firefighting corps for the southern region of the island – a function it fulfilled for more than a century.

Museum of Art

Travel back in time and enjoy the transformation of one of the buildings of the Municipal Hospital to what is now the Museo de arte de Puerto Rico. The Museo de Artede Puerto Rico (MAPR) celebrated the opening of its new Plaza of the Arts on September 17, 2011 with a big event, open to the public, where it accomplished the reason for which it was created: to foster community spirit and art for everyone. The artistic program of the inauguration was organized by the Arte Santurce Cultural Alliance. During the inauguration ceremony the artists Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla, representatives of the United States at the 54th Venice Biennale and residents of Puerto Rico, received a tribute.

Camuy River Cave Park

Explore all that Puerto Rico has to offer as you venture out to the Camuy River Cave Park in Camuy and discover the underground cave system.
