In Puerto Rico, we’re lucky to enjoy beautiful weather, incredible ocean views, and breathtaking lush rainforest. Anyone who loves nature will feel right at home, and if you want to learn more about this unique ecosystem, you can join one of our nature tours at Bahia Beach.
Or join them all! If spending time outdoors is high on your list of must-do Puerto Rico activities, we hope to see you on all five of our tours. These nature tours are guided by biologists and environmental interpreters who will share their expertise about the plants, trees, birds, and animals that make their homes in the forest. The tours are short enough that you could participate in one every day and still have time to hang out on the beach, tour Old San Juan, or play a round of golf.
Let’s get started on Thursday at 10:30 am. This complimentary tour takes about an hour, and is a great way to start your day. It winds through the forest so you can visit the termites, listen to woodpeckers and hummingbirds, and learn about the coastal habitat important to the sea turtles and manatees.
A maximum of seven people are welcome on this trip, but if you can’t make it on Thursday, it leaves at 10:30am on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, as well.
Estuary River Experience
Make sure to set your alarm clocks for Friday morning, so you can meet us at 9:30 am at the Clubhouse. For one hour, we’ll get to know the Espíritu Santo River as we pass along the red mangrove forest. Keep an eye out for woodpeckers, crabs, fish, and a wide variety of wetland birds.
This tour accepts a maximum of 12 people, for a donation fee, but it’s only available on Fridays, so get there early! Snacks and water are provided.
Red Mangrove Adventure
On Saturday, our longest tour (2.5 hours) departs at 9:00 am. Meet us at the Breezeway and transportation will be provided, along with snacks and water. We’re going to venture deep into the rainforest, where ospreys and iguanas go about their days unaware of the luxury Caribbean resort just minutes away!
This nature tour accepts up to 10 people for a donation fee, and Saturday is your one chance for it each week!
This is perfect for a Sunday afternoon! At 2:30 pm (Thursday-Monday), join us to kayak through Tarpon Lake for 45 minutes. Bring your camera (just don’t drop it in the water), because you could see herons, egrets, iguanas, and freshwater turtles in addition to numerous species of fish.
This complimentary afternoon Kayak Tour at St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort accepts a maximum of 12 people.
Night Kayak Tour
This is the perfect way to wrap up your week of Puerto Rico activities! On Tuesday at 6:30 pm, up to 12 people row in the gentle glow of the setting sun for a special 45-minute tour of Puerto Rico’s wildlife. While some birds and animals settle in for the night, other awaken to hunt and forage. This is a must-do while staying at your luxury Caribbean resort, and well worth the small fee.
The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort has the special distinction of being an Audubon Certified Gold Signature Sanctuary, a designation shared by only a handful of resorts worldwide. This is evidence of our commitment to caring for the environment in Puerto Rico, and we’re happy to share our love of nature with you. If you’d like, you can get involved in volunteer projects with the Soul of Bahia Foundation. Ask about it when you’re on your nature tour in Puerto Rico!
