Omg where do I even start. These people at TTR are just wonderful human beings. I was trying to orchestrate and put together a proposal sometime during this ride while on the beach. Let me just say “I couldn’t of done it without them”. From ownership to tour guide these people were wonderful. Special thanks to Elizabeth, Michelle and Albert. I would DEFINITELY recommend this place to anyone looking for a good time. Oh and let’s not forget to shout out those well trained and kept horses. THEY ARE WONDERFUL!!! These pics are just a few of the MANY that we have. ❤️

This is an amazing little gem hidden deep inside the forest. Make sure you ask around because it can be tricky to find it. Bring your swim suit!

Tunel de Guajataca

Built in 1911 for sugarcane trains. The western end of the tunnel connects to the Playa El Pastillo.

Reviewed By DebbieHatch - Gretna, Nebraska

My husband and I spent several hours at the tunel and beach this morning. We saw a large iguana, and several small salimanders. Walked along the beach, and searched out little creatures (blue crab, urchins, fish) in the tide pools.

Reviewed By Kelly N - Maryland

Such a beautiful place! Filled with local families and surfers. There's a friendly bar, but they didn't have power after the hurricane so they closed early when I visited. Bring a snorkel mask, there's plenty to see.

Crashboat Beach

Reviewed By Elika V

The beach in general is in perfect state to bathe, to visit and to have great time with friends and family. Although its main building food kiosk is gone, the fishermen rehabilitated another part in the parking lot and are selling various type of fresh fish during the day. They are going to sell local fritters, and refreshments. So, Crash Boat beach is ready to welcome new visitors to enjoy!!!

Guajataca Forest Reserve

Reviewed By lizakq - Naguabo

I like expolring different places and this one I really liked. I went on a Saturday, got there at 8:30 in the morning and there were troops of boy scouts arriving but that really wasn't a problem. They have different paths that you can take but I only did two which I'm going to review next.
Path to the cave (Cueva de los Vientos): it took us appox 2hrs there and back. This was making stops for pics and exploring the cave. It also was very muddy cause it had rained the day before. So my advice will be to wear good shoes and take a raincoat just in case. The cave is breathtaking, you need to be careful with the stairs to acces the cave and you will need a good flaslight if you want to explore; it is very dark inside. They are lots of bats in the cave but surprisely I didn't see no guano.
Path to the observation tower: it took us 10min to get there once we reached the sign. The path is uphill and a bit challenging. Once you reach the tower you get a good view of all the forest and the breeze is very nice.
I did not go to the information center because I did my research online and also downloaded a map but they are signs everywhere so it's very easy to explore.
Tip: Take lots of water and also some snacks cause there is no where to get anything once you get to the forest.
When you reach the road that takes you to the forest keep in mind that is very narrow and has a lot of curves and people from the area drive like they own the streets.
All in all I would definetly visit again.
