Less than one hour drive from San Juan, the town of Luquillo is
waiting for you.  Since we depart from the Old San Juan, El
Condado, and Isla Verde, this journey starts with the scenic
Piñones coastal road where you will learn important facts of the
colonization of Puerto Rico and the introduction of African
slaves.

This tour blends history and culture with gastronomy, so be
aware
that your main objective is tasting different flavors
of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean
.

A short low-impact walk at El Yunque is included.  This tour
stops only at El Portal Rain Forest Center.
Known as the Father of Modern Puerto Rico, Luis Muñoz Marin
He worked with the Government of the United States to create
the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and a favorable environment
for economic development, social and political progress.  His  
achievements earned him the Presidential Medal of Freedom in
1963.

The Luis Muñoz Marín Foundation mission is to preserve and
disseminate the values, philosophy, and thoughts of the first
democratically elected Governor by Puerto Ricans and by
applying them to contemporary challenges.  We will stop for
lunch at a
local fonda.

What is
Eco-philosophy?

´"Eco-philosophy is "ecological"
in the broadest sense:  it sees
humanity as one with nature, as
an integral part of the process of
evolution which carries the
universe onward from matter to
life, to consciousness, and
ultimately to divine."

Trying to include Cultural Heritage Tours in a website
sometimes is difficult, as culture includes many
aspects of our lives.  That is why we have different tour
options island-wide.  The length of the tour will depend
on your needs and time frame.  We have included a
list of suggested activities in our
Regional Menu,

is "traveling to experience the
places and activities that authentically represent

activities where you will have the opportunity to
experience Puerto Rico through the eyes of our
local people.  Be different, join one of our
CulTOURS today!
Our Cultural Heritage Program

traveling with a local insider.  We have
designed a series of thematic CulTours
that represents our past and present,

CULINARY TOURS

Everyone needs to eat, but when we say
"culinary tour" the main purpose of the
trip will be tasting different flavors of
Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.  Are you
ready?  So, where is the pork?

We have several options of walking tours
at the Old San Juan, Mayagüez, Ponce,
San Germán, and other towns.
