Discover the African heritage of Puerto Rico on this half-day tour to the picturesque Loíza and the beach paradise of Vacía Talega. An unforgettable experience!
After we pick you up from your hotel, we will head toward Loíza, a municipality in the north of Puerto Rico deep rooted in the island's African heritage.
In Loíza you will find out about the local customs of its inhabitants, who still conserve their African folklore through song, dance and urban architecture. This area is also home to one of the main attractions of the northern side of the island, the María de la Cruz Historical Park. Enter this green-space to discover the impressive archaeological remains of the María de la Cruz Cave which help us to understand the past of this Caribbean Island.
A surprise awaits you when you leave the cave: a demonstration of the Bomba dance! This dance with roots in Africa, reveals an important cultural legacy originating from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. We will continue our tour at the Vacía Talega beach, a heavenly cove just north of Loíza.
Explore the beach at your own leisure and recharge your batteries in one of the restaurants to be found on the same stretch of coastline. The perfect opportunity to savour the Puerto Rican gastronomy! In the afternoon, we will meet up to start the journey back to your hotel.
