They are plenty of fun activities to plan in Puerto Rico. You can enter www.getshoppedpr.com that they offer a Mofongo and Mojito Tour with yours truly or check www.toursbylocals.com that has different independent tour guides that offer various trips around the island at great prices.

Hope you enjoy PR

i second www.puertoricodaytrips.com

also, there are many drivers in Puerto Rico that will take a large group on a tour. I use John at Johnspublic@yahoo.com. he will pick you up and take you to where you want to go. very reliable and his english is great.

how long will you be there? Have you made any plans for a bio bay tour? thats a night excursion. many people rent a car go to el yunque for q few hours then to guavate for lechon then to fajardo to do a bio bay tour there or take a tour to the bio bay in Vieques with east island excursions.

you can head west to camuy and arecibo.

I just checked this tourbylocals, they don't have certified Guides or boats. That is not legal. on their page:

Tour Guide Licenses are not being issued at this moment. I am allowed to give tours as a Tour Guide Graduate.

I can't guide you in certain museums.

Some tours have their own guides.

20' Seahawk Type Fishing Boat with a 60-120HP motor. The boat belongs to a local fisherman. The boat does not have seats, but they are available if needed.

To operate a boat and take Tourists out, it's a lot of permits and insurance, yearly inspections

That is one option, of many given by the site. If its doable or not, is up to the client.

By the way, that tour is very very special. It seems to me, that this is the only person who does this excursion in the San Juan Estuary, giving an economical push to the community that welcomes this visitors.

Well, I am sorry, but I do not support people that are not legal. They take away business from legal Companies that are required to go through the process and have their insurance and permits. Magic Tarpon has offered trips through the Mangroves in Pinones
