Default San Juan - enough time for El Yunque?????

We'll be in San Juan on the Navigator of the Seas in Oct. I hope to rent a taxi to see El Yunque. The tour offered by RCI is 4 1/2 hours..! Can I reasonably do this tour in a cab in 4 hrs or less??? We arrive in SJ at 2 p.m. and have dinner reservations for 7 p.m. and we have to be back onboard by 9:30 p.m.

Default rain forest

Hi Clay B, yes the rain forest can be done in less than 4 hours specially if you go with someone who knows.
Not all taxi (infact most) have the special permit to enter the forest, most tour vans do.
You can find a tour van on that day outside the pier but you might want to check with one of the operators at sanjuantourguides@yahoo.com

The reason it takes so long is its quite a distance away. The rain forest is tremendous, so you won't be able to see the whole thing. Taxi's will cost $$$. It was about $20 just to get to the hotel from the airport, about a 15 minute drive on the highway.
