Hilda took my husband and I on the night hike in El Yunque. I would
recommend this to EVERYONE lucky enough to go to Puerto Rico. It is an
amazing experience- the rain forest at night......bioluminescent
organisms......coquis serenading you....do I really need to say any more?
The next time we go we are definitely going back!!!!

Lisa Costantino - October, 2011
Magical Nights in El Yunque is a concept that was born in
2001.  We start with a short interpretive talk about El Yunque
National Forest.  While going to the entrance of the trail, the
action begins as we begin to identifying fauna and flora and the
orchestral sounds of the Forest guide us on our journey.  

Safety measures are explained at the beginning of the trail. We
supply small flashlights and use minimum light during the hikes.

Dear Hilda, -- We just wanted you to tell you again how much we enjoyed
touring El Yunque with you on Wednesday. Attached are a few of the many
pictures we took that day. Hope all is well with you and your mother.

Hilda, -- We have all agreed that the day we spent with you was the most
spectacular thing we did on our trip and are very happy we went.  We hope
you had a nice time with us as well.  I'll send you electronic copies of the
photos we took that came out well.  I'm having hip replacement surgery in a
few weeks and look forward to doing more strenuous activities within the
next year, so maybe we can come back and do the longer tour you offer.  
Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and love of the forest with us.

There are four confirmed bioluminescent species of
macro-fungi in El Yunque National Forest.  These fungi are
capable of glowing in the dark.  Join us in the search of these
unique mushrooms.  We will also see other forms of
bioluminescense, plus the non-bioluminescent coquí.  

Special weather conditions should take place to see the
glow-in-the-dark mushrooms.  Due to the nature of this private
1-1/2 hour nature walk on a fragile environment, private groups
are limited to a maximum 10  participants per guide.  

Available only on moonless nights, three nights per month.  
Celebrating 18 years in the East region!
El Yunque National Forest is home of over 240 species of native
trees, 50 species of orchids, and 150 species of ferns.  Wildlife
at the Forest is dominated by birds, amphibians, and reptiles.   
How these species survive at the Forest?  During our nature
walk we will explain how they have adapted to the Forest.
