Come and explore the historic salt mining fields that have been in operation for over 500 years, witness the unique flora and fauna of the area, and be prepared for a moderate hike to the breathtaking Los Morrillos Lighthouse, used as a vital navigation aid since 1883, and situated on the cliffs overlooking the Caribbean Sea. As I guide you through nature paths in the Southwest corner of the island, you will discover spectacular views of cliffs, secluded beaches, and other natural landscapes that you will want to keep forever in your memory. We will finish our route with a toast to nature and life in one of my favorite spots on the beautiful beach of Playuela where you can stay at your own to enjoy the rest of the day. In this experience you will get to know a Puerto Rico that you have never imagined!
I am a PhD marine biologist and was born and raised in this part of the island. For me this is a calling.

I love to share my favorite places with special people that love, respect and enjoy nature!
