AAA Editor Notes

Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Preserve is on Hwy. 987. Surrounded on three sides by the Atlantic Ocean, this 321-acre reserve protects a variety of ecological systems, including coral reefs, offshore cays, lagoons, mangroves, a dry forest and a bioluminescent lagoon. The park is accessible only by a 2.5-hour guided tour that combines riding aboard an open-air trolley and walking along boardwalks and nature trails. The last stop is the castle-like lighthouse, Faro de las Cabezas de San Juan, one of the oldest on the island. Guided tours are available.
$10; $8 (ages 65+ and students with ID). Reservations are required.
Hours: English-language tours depart Wed.-Sun. at 2; three other tours are offered in the morning. The number of visitors is strictly limited to protect the park's fragile ecosystem.
