Daily upon request
Due to the limited access to El Yunque after the
impact of hurricanes Irma and María,
at this moment
we are allowed to offer only
three trips per week
(maximum of four people per trip) which means that
only 12 people can visit the Forest weekly with
each company with these special permits.  Our
birding trips are offered on a
private basis,
on-demand, or as a public event.

Private birding trips
- we hold all seats for you or
your small group.  
These trips are not booked
online (but you can request availability online)

as we need to work the logistics as per your
special needs and request.  A non-refundable
deposit is required to guarantee the date. We start
at 8:30 AM, but itineraries are flexible as it will be
your birding day!  We meet in Luquillo, but if you
need transfers, please ask for quote as prices
could vary depending hotel location.

On-demand birding trips are those where you will
like to share the trip with other birders.  You choose
the date of a half-day or a full day birding trip and
we open the date for other birders that will like to
join you.  A non-refundable deposit for one person
will be required as the minimum for this type of trip
is two people.  If the minimum is not reached, you
will be required to pay for the minimum of two
people.  If you are joining a preexisting on-demand
birding trip, the departure time has been chosen by
the original booking party. To start your on-demand
birding trip booking process,
please require
information for our half and full day trips.

Public events
are those scheduled on a specific
date as an special offer or that the logistics allows
us to offer it as such.  These public events require a
minimum of participants (4) and a maximum of 10
people.  You meet your guide on site.  If  you need
transfers, please as for quote as prices could vary
depending on hotel location.  
Public events are
the only birding trips at the rain forest that can
be booked online at this moment.
Available for small groups on a private basis; for shared/public activities, check our Special Events page.

A special trip looking for
the Elfin-woods Warbler is
available on a private
basis.  Please contact
us for details.
"Hilda is great. She knows her birds and her calls. She moves at a different pace than the typical
guide, working deliberate and meticulous to get your target birds. During our outing I was able to
pick up a dozen lifers including the PR Lizard Cuckoo, Oriole, and Tanager. In addition, Hilda
put me on a spot to get the PR Screech Owl the following day."
