THINGS TO DO IN CEIBA
HAVE A BEACH DAY
The pristine white sands of Los Machos and Medio Mundo are a must during your visit to Ceiba. These beaches are little known to tourists and offer a quiet place to relax and soak up the sun. There are no restaurants here, so be sure to bring something to snack on during the day.
EXPLORE THE RAINFOREST
Take a day trip to El Yunque National Forest, the only tropical rainforest in the U.S. National Forest System. Located just 30 minutes from Ceiba, El Yunque offers 19 miles of trails and 24 miles of hiking trails. Climb Mount Britton Tower for a panoramic view of the forest from the top or take a dip in one of the incredible waterfalls such as Salto Juan Diego or Salto La Mina.
