Ricky is THE MAN - he knows the area and the park inside and out, and was able to adapt to "the other tourist crowds" en mass and adjust our stops accordingly. He shared a history and geography lesson with on in the van on the way which helped the understanding of what we were to be seeing. I appreciated the smaller 112-14 passenger van, rathern than a 20-25 seater monster tour group. We were able to ask questions easily and get personal attention. Walking distances were apprpropriate for all levels of hiking ability. I do want to note that if you see any books or shirt sin a gift shop where you stop, get them THEN because you won't be going back whilst on the tour. Good job, RICKY!

AWESOME. Sammy was a great tour guide, very informative. We stopped for a wonderful lunch. If you liked the movie AVATAR, you will love El Yunque Rainforest.
