Great tour! Prepare to get a little wet as it rains daily but it was refreshing in July. Our tour guide Ricky was awesome and very knowledgeable about the history and plant life.

Our tour guide Nararyan was entertaining and knowledgable, and it was wonderful to walk along a stream to get to the waterfall. The waterfall swimming hole is crowded and chilly but still a great experience. There are also smaller pools along the way if you want to take a dip in a less crowded spot. I highly recommend the tour.

The guide was very knowledgeable and able to navigate us around the crowds for a more enjoyable experience. This was a great way to get out of San Juan and see more of the island.

We loved this tour! Our tour guide, Angel, was very talkative, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. Only downfall of the whole trip was that I slipped on the rocks in the waterfall causing my toe nail to fall off. Bring water shoes!!! Food stand stop at the end of the tour was an unexpected bonus. :)

Great tour! Great tour guide! Not a difficult hike (under 2 miles total). However, the hike back from la Mina is uphill and therefore a bit more challenging.

Great tour; the guide was fabulous: knowledgeable, fluent, flexible and fun. He loved what he was doing and he loved the sights, and it truly showed. The walk was listed as moderate, and I'd not recommend it for handicapped or if you have a problem with occasional slippery stones; however, it was not truly strenuous at any point.

We were very happy with the tour. Our guide, Tony, is from the area and spoke nearly the entire drive to the rain forest, providing good area knowledge. We had a blast hiking the trails and swimming at the waterfall.
If you go on the tour-hope that you get Tony.

Highly recommended. Beautiful trip. I would not call this hike especially "athletic" unless you're really out of shape. Highly informative guide, very helpful and courteous, enthusiastic. A nice way to spend the day outside of San Juan!

This was an amazing experience and I give most of the credit to our wonderful guide, Tony Caliz. Tony is a lifelong resident of the rainforest area and he knows the terrain and the people of the area well. He in informative, entertaining, and engaging. I can't believe the value I got for the money I paid, which included transportation to and from the rainforest from SJ, a couple of quick scenic photo ops, and a vigorous hike down and back from an impressive waterfall. Our hike (due to dodgy weather, thus low traffic) included a stop at the forest welcome center and concluded with a stop for local empanadas! I was lucky to get Tony Caliz via viator. You might also try looking him up individually. I know he gives all sorts of wonderful tours beyond what you see offered here!

Hiking in El Yunque Rainforest was fun! The group that I was with was rather small, so it made the experience more intimate and enjoyable. The hike itself was nice. I did, however, expect our driver/tour guide, Rob, to go on the hike with the group, but he stayed back. Despite this, we found our way to the waterfall, which was extremely crowded, but we were all able to get in the water. After hiking back and meeting up with Rob, he showed us some more locations in the forest, and took us to lunch (the lunch was amazing)! I would definitely recommend this tour. Thanks for a great time, Rob!
