We run excursions every day from Las Piedras Hotel, except for Thursdays and Sundays. These are included in the excursion package. The accessible excursions are kept small and personal, accompanied by our friendly, professional tour guides, using our own accessible vehicles. Our guides will show you the best of the area and provide you with knowledge and information about the destinations we visit. Most excursions depart Las Piedras at 11:00 and return at around 17:00.
We don´t have a set excursion programme as there are so many different, interesting places that we visit from Las Piedras. We try to keep everybody happy with a mixture of different types of visits during your stay. In one week you would expect to visit the coast at least once, perhaps a market, a nature reserve and a nice town, village or city visit. If you have special requests, just let us know. The excursions are run on a small group basis.
