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.

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!

El Yunque Rainforest and Luquillo Beach Combo Tour
Guide/driver was very good. Handled minor adversity with the bus in a professional manner. Kept guest safety as a priority the whole trip given the rocky approaches and different swimming abilities this was very important. A fun day in the water but not for you if you want a rainforest hike.

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.
