Old San Juan/El Morro/Beach/Restaurant

(for groups staying in northern Puerto Rico)

After a fulfilling week of ministry, teams will explore the cobblestone streets of historic Old San Juan and explore El Morro, the 500-year-old Spanish fort that stands guard over San Juan Harbor.  Teams will then visit a local beach where they can swim in the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea, beach comb, sit in a chair under a palm tree, or snorkel or surf, when available. The day will conclude with a meal at a local restaurant.

Ponce / Shopping and Exploring/Beach/Restaurant 

(for groups staying in southern Puerto Rico)

Teams will have an opportunity to explore the city of  Ponce, widely known as the “Pearl of the South.” Ponce has an abundance of culture, great museums and is rich in history.  It’s one of the largest and oldest cities in Puerto Rico and is a great place to grab some local cuisine and shop for a few souvenirs and gifts to take back home. The latter part of the day will be spent relaxing on one of Puerto Rico’s beautiful southern beaches, far removed from the hustle and bustle of city life. Those who want to swim in the Carribean Sea will be encouraged to do so!  The day will conclude with a meal at a local restaurant.

Additional Options

If your group has visited Old San Juan and El Morro before or would like to try a different recreation option, here are some opportunities to consider.  Please register for these options through the Thirst Missions office at least 2 months prior to your trip. Each of the options must be done as an entire group.

El Yunque / Old San Juan and El Morro or Beach

Visit El Yunque National Forest, the only tropical rainforest managed by US Forest Service. The ample rainfall (over 20 feet a year in some areas) creates a jungle-like setting with lush foliage, crags, waterfalls, and rivers. The forest has a number of trails from which the jungle-like territory’s flora and fauna can be appreciated. You’ll visit the Angelito Trail in El Yunque where you’ll take an easy ½ mile hike to a pleasant river swimming hole. While there, explore the rocky river terrain, relax in the cool, refreshing water of the rainforest, or jump into the river from a small rope swing.  Conclude the day with a visit to Old San Juan and El Morro or a local beach and a group meal at a local restaurant.

Recreation, Transportation and Supper.  $35/person

Indian Cave / Bishops Pond Beach

Explore the northern coast of Puerto Rico and enjoy a beautiful view along the rocky coastline. Those who desire can traverse a rock outcropping and miniature cave at Cueva del Indio (Indian Cave). Spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing on a nearby beach and cove adjacent to the picturesque Arecibo Lighthouse and Historical Park.  This tour offers something for everyone and is spectacular in scenery, while providing exercise and an opportunity to swim in the Caribbean Sea. The day will conclude with a meal at a local restaurant.
