How much of Puerto Rico can you see on one day? Quite a lot. Puerto Rico is small, and has good infrastructure (road) so is easy to move from one place to the other. So, if your flight makes a long layover in PR, or if you stop on a cruise, or you want to see as much as possible in one day, this is the tour for you. You will get a full tour of Old San Juan (know the history and culture of Puerto Rico), a beach forest (mangroves, lagoons), a cave and a glimpse of the rain forest. This is not a regular commercial tour. I will show you different places. I will give you a lot of interesting information in a fun/informal way. We can be spontaneous. You can get to "feel", "breath" and "enjoy" Puerto Rico.
