Also known as “Porta Antillas”, the east region of the island is a lush tropical rain forest palm shaded beaches, small island and cays surrounded by clear waters, ocean sailing, resorts and great food.
The waters off the east coast of Puerto Rico are teeming with marine life, making them ideal destinations for catamaran cruises, sailing, fishing charters, and snorkeling and diving excursions. The marinas at Fajardo offer numerous tour operators and captains for adventures on, or beneath, the water.
The east also boasts the only subtropical rain forest in the United States Forest Service-El Yunque. With its waterfalls, hiking trails, and panoramic vistas, the forest system is a nature lover’s wonderland, and offers tourists a variety of activities ranging from a leisurely hike to extreme adventuring.
Here’s where you will find the towns of Loíza, Gurabo, Juncos, Las Piedras, Canóvanas, Río Grande, Luquillo, Fajardo, Ceiba, Humacao, Naguabo, Maunabo, Yabucoa, and the islands of Culebra and Vieques.
