Definitely worth the trip. Beautiful. Our guide was very informative. And a stop at a Puerto Rican cafe at the end. A doable half day trip to leave time for the beach afterward. I miss San Juan already. Hope to come back someday.
The tour of El Yunque Forest was great. Definitely worth it! Our tour guide was wonderful...shared lots of info with us. He was funny, entertaining and extreme professional and courteous! He made the entire trip from the commute on the van to the tour at the rainforest so memorable!
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!
The tour guide was great. He was very informative and took his time to answer questions.
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.
Definitely would recommend this tour. Great for adults and kids alike.
We were very satisfied with our trip to the rain forest with Sammy. He was courteous, friendly, and knowledgeable. We also stopped for lunch at a local restaurant.
This is well worth the trip, a short day to the rain forest, just enough to see what you want, and nothing to boaring or time consuming, this trip moves at a good pace, I've been on it twice now.... this will get you back to the resort and enjoy some afternoon sun on the beach the rest of the day. Great value for a good wake me up exercise.
Our guide, Robert, was extremely knowledgeable about the many facets of the rain forest. He identified vegetation and birds. Made bird calling which elicited responses from other birds. He was also a wealth of information about the San Juan area. Anyone interested in the ecological system of the rain forest would find the tour worthwhile.
Our tour was great. Our tour guide, Debbie, was so informative and told some wonderful personal stories from her childhood, when she was visiting the rainforest. She stopped often, and took us on walks into the rainforest and showed us many plants and other features not on any guide. We all voted and stopped for lunch in the rainforest, where we had local dishes that Debbie explained. She was very helpful and make us all feel great.
Tony was awesome! He knew so much about the rain forest, having grown up there, he could answer any question. The forest was beautiful and the hike was easy. I was a little worried because I just had a knee replacement, but it was fine. I would definitely recommend this trip, especially if you get Tony.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. My only regret is that I took this tour on my last day in Puerto Rico. I wished that I had taken it sooner. My tour guide, Javier, was excellent! He was very knowledgeable and kept us laughing. Had I taken this tour sooner, I would have had all of the information that I needed to make my time in PR even more enjoyable (ideas for day trips via ferry, etc).
