Bob's East Island Surf Adventures
Bob Roberts and his team will have you hanging ten in a matter of minutes. If you find yourself in Luquillo, you can't miss this friendly, fun, and righteous lesson from a long-time Puerto Rican surfer.
Bob’s lessons are limited to appointment and are best arranged through us at the Rainforest Inn. We sent one of our interns to both blog and do a podcast about this experience because we love the idea of our guests surfing a wave in Luquillo for the first time. We hope you can fit this adventure in when you stay with us.
Learn to ride a horse, and tour the beautiful nature trails enveloping the Casa Rico Hacienda. Trot through sub-tropical forests, lakes, and table-top ranges. With gentle, spirited Paso Fino horses we can assure you the ride will be fun and exhilarating for novices and experienced riders alike.
We recommend their afternoon rides so that you can enjoy a leasurily breakfast here first. This is our favourite trail ride experience both because of the amazing vistas and long rides around lagoons and mountains but also because their Paso Finos are properly (humanely) cared for. You can book on their website or let us arrange it for you.
