In this fun filled day, we will start early in the morning in San Juan then head to Lajas (2 hr. drive) passing through picturesque inner mountain regions and southern coastlines of Puerto Rico. We'll make a brief stop in the town of Yauco to visit the Art Murals and town square then head to Lajas, where we will arrive to "La Parguera" boardwalk where we'll take a private shuttle (10 Min) to “Mata La Gata Island” where you will be dazzled by the pristine turquoise waters & welcomed by a beautiful collection of mangroves perfect for swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding accompanied by enjoying a lite lunch. After a few hours of adventure & fun, we will head back to walk the boardwalk where guests will have an opportunity to shop, eat, relax for a minutes followed by heading to Guanica where we'll go to a local sunflower farm finishing off our daily activities in the town of Ponce to enjoy Firehouse relics at the “ Plaza de Bomba's Museum" and walking around the historical town plaza continued by heading back to San Juan. **Please Note** Due to seismic activity in the south, the deck at Playa Rosada was destroyed, due to safety reasons this stop is discounted until further notice. As an alternative, we will be making a stop to visit the art murals at Yaucromatic. 50% of proceeds of this experience goes towards economic & earthquake recovery efforts.
