Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve

Fajardo, Puerto Rico (Updated July 2021)

A bioluminescent lagoon, mangroves, coral reefs, dry forests, sandy and rocky beaches set between headlands—visit all these ecosystems in one place.

Las Cabezas de San Juan is a nature reserve located in the northeastern of the island, Fajardo, Puerto Rico. Get to know the different ecosystem, their 100 species of birds that might see during the visit, dry forest, and walk along a boardwalk between mangroves until you reach the bioluminescent lagoon known as Laguna Grande.

Enjoy the view at the lighthouse which is also part of the Nature Reserve. The lighthouse was constructed in 1880 by the Spanish. It is the second oldest on the island and was listed in the National Register of Historic Places by the United States government on October 22, 1981. In 2001, under the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act, it became the first lighthouse to be transferred to a non-governmental organization in Puerto Rico.

You must have reservations to get past the guard since walk-ins are not allowed. They recommend you get there 30 minutes early, which gives you time to relax and enjoy the breeze.
