One of the main things that distinguish our
service is our commitment with culture and its
connection with El Yunque. With this in mind,
we teamed up with Martín Veguilla and Concilio
Taíno Guatu-Ma-cu A Borikén to bring you an
areyto under the stars. You will learn about
the indigenous groups living in Puerto Rico
before the arrival of the Spaniards and the basic
steps of the dance (areyto), dancing under the
light of the stars.
This activity takes place at El Yunque National
Forest (rain forest) as we hold special permits
and have access to the Forest after 6 PM.
