Experience with us the roots of Puerto Rico on this 5-hour combination tour where you discover deserted beaches, hike to a scenic beach view, taste the local food, visit an open cave in the historical park.

In the Loiza Pinones area, the African heritage can be seen all around! The music, dance, art, and food are all deeply rooted in African tradition. We drive to the Historical Park Maria de la Cruz in Loiza and its beautiful cave. It is of great historical value to the area with lots of interesting facts to discover. Here you might learn a little bit about the Folklore Bomba music and dance through a short presentation/workshop. If the local artists are home we will visit their galleries.

Our next stop is at the beautiful tropical beach Vacia Talega, where you will be able to admire the deep blue waters. We will take a short 10-minute hike through the bush to a scenic view, overlooking the cliffs, beach and the ocean. Our last stop of the day is at a local beachfront restaurant.
