Explore the most popular dogs on leash trails in Puerto Rico with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

I love history and love the ocean. Such a great combination of the two.

This is what PR vacations are about.

This trail is still closed from hurricane Maria but the rainforest is gorgeous and still worth the visit. They do allow you far enough up (driving) to see Coca Falls and they also allow you to go to the first viewing tower just a little past the Coca Falls. There isn't a lot of parking but stay patient and you will get a spot. There is a 30 minute time limit on parking. Only trail we found that was open was Angelito. Short but it leads you to a nice stream.

This is not a hike but an easy walk except for the 5 ft of rock scramble due to closed bridge section. We get there early to avoid cruise ship traffic and local family picnics but our dog swims and the rope swing is great if you go as high as possible before swinging to give you a huge arc and avoid the rocks. You can sit in natural rapids for a jacuzzi and water is perfect temp as long as you just jump in.

Short and sweet. Waterhole at the end.

Short but pretty. Lots of small animals (lizards, birds, snails). The second half was closed due to floods washing out the bridge and swimming was not recommended because of flash flooding.

My husband and I loved hiking this trail on our trip to Puerto Rico. It was beautiful! The foliage and sounds of running water made it a breathtaking experience.

Tough trail. I would rate this as a difficult trail rather than moderate. Wear good waterproof hiking boots! You will cross wide streams and walk through lots of deep squishy mud and slippery rocks/roots. Trail is well marked and end of trail is rewarding with river pools to swim in. Bring swimwear and lots of water to stay hydrated! Trail head says it's 1.8mi/1.5hr. Took us about 3.5hr to hike out and back.

I did this hike May 13th. I live in Florida so these are the closest mountains for me to get to easily. We went on a long weekend and I love hiking so any chance to get some elevation for hiking (Florida is flat) and I'm game. It's not Hawai'i or Colorado, but La Mina Falls hike was very cool.
I was disappointed with the lack of information about Hiking in PR. The drive up was fine. The road was well maintained, but there were a few narrow spots so beware or go on on if the many guided tours.
The friend I traveled with had never hiked so we tried to take well worn trails.
The hike to La Mina Falls was mostly paved with a 2ft wide path. It was fairly easy in hiking shoes and well maintained.
When we got to the falls my friend went swimming, as were a lot of locals. It seems to be a popular swimming spot. Note to self, wear a swim suit under my hiking shorts next time lol. The water was cold and the rocks surrounding the Falls were not too slippery.
After swimming/wadding, we noticed several people easily hiking off trail below us, actually they were barefoot so we decided to check out the other smaller falls downhill.
I love going off the beaten path, so this was fun and not too difficult to boulder. It took us away from the 30 or so people who were swimming in La Mina by noon.
Overall, for hiking this was fun and relatively close. Plus, you don't need a passport for Puerto Rico!
I would definitely include hiking if I was going to PR.
We wish we had time to climb MT Britton, but by noon it was raining at higher altitude and I decided not to go into uncharted territory in the rain with a novice hiker.
There is always next time!

This was a hike conducted at El Yunque National Park, including a hike to the waterfall, and through the El Yunque trail to the peak and then to the observation tower.

I made a loop of this trail and La Mina to get the full experience. It was a pleasant stroll through the well maintained trail, and I stopped several times to look over interesting trees and plants. Because it's in a forest, there are not many scenic views of the area, but that isn't noticed because there are so many trees and types of terrain that capture the interest. This is a hike that causes one to take special interest in the immediate surroundings. With the richness of plants being a special treat, I didn't see much wildlife. The trail culminates in the very popular falls. From there I went up the La Mina trail.

The hike is not difficult at all. If you're looking for a relaxing walk and cooling swim, this trail is perfect. There are many places to explore at the end of the trail, and there is a deep pool to swim in.

The waterfall was beautiful and well worth the trek in. I would only recommend for those in some sort of shape. It could be difficult coming back out if out of shape/over weight.

This trail starts outside Fuerte San Felipe del Morro (the Morro Fortress). Before you go into the Fort entrance head to the right to find the start of the trail. You will walk around the base of the fortress to the west side of the peninsula and then head down to the Red Gate. You can enter the city there or continue on the trail down to the harbor. Take sunscreen since there is no shade. Water is also a good idea.
