This excursion hands down was the most intense but most satisfying ever! The tour guide Franky was freaking fantastic & hilarious! The hike was very engaging and involved since you needed to climb, dip, and crawl but in the end it was all worth it. Definitely recommend.
This was amazing!! Be prepared to be covered in mud tho! Definitely worth it, 10/10 recommend. Hiked I think 45 minutes then got to enjoy the water. Frankie and Mitchel was veryyyy helpful and sweet !!!
Great tour guides. Fun...
Great tour guides. Fun hike. Trip includes hotel pickup/drop off/tour/ stop to make sure you have what you need/stop for lunch. Have to be in good physical shape to do the tour
What an adventure!
Our tour guide was Frankie. We had an amazing time. This was more that just your standard hike. It was an adventure. It is difficult but the reward is more than worth it. They take pictures and videos along the way. Overall great experience!
This was one of the best excursions we have been on! My husband and I like to travel and we try to do at least 2 activities at each of the places we go to. This definitely sits at the top. It’s definitely physically demanding, but the tour guides are there to help support you along the journey and once you get to the natural water slides, the rope swing, and the cliff jump, it’s all worth it! Frankie was our tour guide, and he was fantastic! Very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Chris was our “life guard,” he helped us along the trek and in the water to ensure our safety. You will have an absolute blast on this excursion, you should absolutely book it!
Visit to El Yunque with tour guide Ivan !

Our tour guide Ivan was the best !! I definitely recommend him for anybody looking to have a great experience en el Yunque, He was very kind and outgoing. Along the way he spoke about some history about the island and about how things came to be, the culture. We all felt very comfortable around him and had lots of laughs along the way as well. When it came to an end he recommended spots for food, drinks and music!! We all enjoyed our experience so much and were glad to have Ivan as our tour guide. 10/10 :D
Felix our tour guide made the experience so much fun!! He has lots of positive energy and kept us laughing while also putting our safety first. This trip is a MUST!!
Adri is the best!!
I couldn't imagine the rainforest adventure without her. She made sure of our safety through out the trip and also provided inputs on different trees and their origin in the rain forest.
Adriana was awesome! Loads of fun and safe! The trip was a fun time and she was an excellent guide in addition the the gentleman helping her!
Fun and beautiful rainforest tour
Our tour guides Adriana and Mitchell were great and very informative! They made sure safety was a priority but made sure we were having a fun time! Would definitely book this tour again.
So fun! It’s a beautiful area to see. Loved the hiking, swimming, jumping and the rope swing. Not something you can do everyday here in Ohio… our guides especially Adrianna were kind, helpful and respectful of all our different needs

Jason was incredible! We had so much fun! The whole trip was a blast. Even the bus ride became a part of the experience. The rainforest was beautiful and the natural slide and waterfalls were amazing!
THE BEST EXPERIENCE IN SAN JUAN
Adriana and Louis were AMAZING. They kept us energized and excited for everything this trip had to offer. I felt safe the entire time although I could see how the hike could be pretty challenging for the unexperienced. However, I urge everyone to challenge themselves to be brave! It will be worth it! The experience is absolutely breathtaking and Adriana and Louis are super fun and informative, so you will learn a lot about El Yunque! Walking past the other tours that were going on, it was obvious we were given the best tour guides with the best company.
Adventurous and Fun
Adriana was an amazing guide. Our hike wouldn't have been as fun as it was without her. Not to forget how she ensured we all were safe and had an amazing experience at the same time. She also had amazing restaurant suggestions for lunch.
