Viejo San Juan & La Perla
Magical Walking Tour


Explore our historic city & La Perla off the beaten path with a real local!

Our Old San Juan & La Perla Magical Walking Tour features the off the beaten path one of a kind neighborhood of la Perla with rich local culture, street art and the history of the forts, pirates, inspiring architectural details throughout our walk and legends/folk tales of this 500 year old city once considered the Gateway to the Americas by the Spanish and their European rivals (mainly the British, Dutch and French). We also get to explore the best local Puerto Rican Mountain coffee on the island in some of the farm to table cafés where the owners grow their own coffee beans in their farms up in the highest Central mountains of Puerto Rico. Again, we focus on secret local spots in the city as well as the classics with a unique local perspective from Andrés who has been a local resident of Viejo San Juan historic neighborhood since 2010. Start time is usually 4-7pm so we can catch the beautiful sunset from one of the most beautiful spots in the city and in the entire island. We also have an optional private secluded beach spot which is basically a natural jacuzzi in the ocean where we can bathe. It’s a secret spot with magical views.

Magical Mystery Tour


Explore the Soul of Puerto Rico!

We access this sacred land via a private property (farm) which belongs to us (Atabey Tours). From here we have a 15 minute hike through the forest to reach the river. This is a super off the beaten path local area (no tourists). Once on the river, we do some wild river trekking (waist deep) and enjoy some beautiful swimming holes and an optional Mud Bath along with spectacular views of the mountains and even the ocean. We even have a natural water slide more up river for those true explorers. All this on the way to our stunning waterfall where we can play and cliff jump at all levels from easy to more challenging.

We bathe inside the vortex of the canyon created by the thundering waterfall carving out the rock over thousands of years. On the way back, we take the Afro-Puerto Rican scenic coastal route to sample some optional local food and/or fruit, explore an optional wild deserted beach & learn about local African culture in our island. Pickup and drop off time is usually 12:30-5:30pm (possibly longer) depending on your pace as we have no rush in these magical places. I would pick you up in your place in the San Juan area.

Magical Mystery Tour Extreme


Discover one of Earth’s longest subterranean rivers on this adventure into a mythical landscape. We trek about 40 minutes through a hilly jungle with wild tropical fruits and reach an epic river where we can drink natural spring water emerging as filtered mineral water from the rocks, swim in a sediment rich river surrounded by waterfalls, canyons, springs and caves! There is also an exfoliating mud bath. The landscapes here are surreal and almost alien.

$110 per person | 4 person minimum

Alternative Old San Juan Tour


This customizable tour of “Viejo San Juan” will lead you through the historic and mystical colonial city we call home. We can also explore La Perla, the historic, colorful, funky shantytown that is known as the oldest barrio in San Juan, also where the world famous “Despacito” Music Video was filmed. This tour will take you beyond the typical tourist experience and deep into the history behind the walls which have been standing around our sacred city for over 400 years.

“El Yunque is the United States’ only tropical rainforest. It was devastated by the storms. The lower falls have been cleaned up, so you can still hike that part; it’s full of lovely greenery and flowers. I recommend going to El Yunque with Atabey Tours. The guide, Andres Carrero, is an adventurer who has lived in Puerto Rico his entire life. He has a deep appreciation for the island and is super socially conscious. He will point out amazing things that people don’t normally notice and take you off the beaten path. Remember to wear a bathing suit so you can jump in a swimming hole.” —Laura Daen, founder of Mercado Agricola Natural Viejo San Juan
