I would definitely reccomend this trip to anybody visiting Puerto Rico. It was super convenient being picked up at our hotel, and our guide Sammy was fun and funny and told us many interesting facts about Puerto Rico on our drive there, including good places to eat. We got many spectacular photos of the ranforest and and the hike itself was not that strenuous. With that being said, it is a rainforest so it rains a lot, so bring a rain poncho and make sure to wear good shoes, the trail is very slippery.
The hike is a fantastic trip to take and well worth it. Only takes a few hours to complete so shouldn't be hard to fit into anyone's time table. The guide Tony, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about most anything you could ask during your rainforest hike.
It was easy, and the best was the swimming in the pool of the 3d waterfall
Our guide Tony was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about El Yunque (he is from the area) and full ofinformation about Puerto Rico in general. His English is excellent and he has a great personality. We had time on our own to hike back up from the main waterfall. I would certainly recommend this
Amazing and our guide Enrique was fantastic. He was informative, personable but knew when to drop into the background and let us enjoy the forest. He also gave us some good recommendations for other things to see. The hike was fairly easy and the weather cooperated and turned out to be a perfect day.
Evwething was wxelent. Tony the driver was very good at explaining the area. best. I had trouble fisinknf rthe trip and tony and jackson heled baack up the trail..I wouls SC\VISE ANYbody to tAKE THE TRIP. rALPH
I was staying in the Virgin Islands and traveled to Puerto Rico specifically for this trip and was not disappointed. Tony was our guide for the day and he was both hilarious and knowledgeable. They have complimentary pick up from certain hotels so that was a big plus. As soon as I got in the car the tour began. He points out areas along the way and talks about them and also filled us in on current events in Puerto Rico etc. The rainforest was great and again he has what seems to be infinite knowledge of the forest. Just be sure to wear appropriate shoes as two people in our group did not and slowed us down the first half. Whether you come for a day to take the trip or are staying here be sure to book this tour and ask for Tony!
Tony was a great guide. It was a walk in the park type feel but very fun. Great views. Tony was very knowledgeable. Recommend to all.
We were lucky to have the great tour guide (Robert) that we had. Extremely knowledgeable about Puerto Rico and the rainforest. He made the drive to El Yunque very entertaining and informative. The hike was a little more rigorous than I expected (lots of steep ups and downs on slippery rocks) but still very nice.
Great trip. Our guide Ricky started off on the drive by giving us some history on the island and where we were going. The rain forrest is can't miss and we hit all the stops. The hike was wonderful and not very challenging. Great tour and great guide.
This trip was amazing. Our tour guide, Robert, was very informative on not only just the rainforest, but the entire island history as well. The ride up the mountain was a comfortable one, and just the 30 minute ride up shows you how awesome the entire island is!
I took this trip the day after my arrival in Puerto Rico, and this was a wonderful introduction to my stay. The rain forest is beautiful and impressive, I really enjoyed the walking.
Our guide Robert explained so much about Puerto Rico itself: its economy, its government, its politics. He was so interesting and enthusiastic that his talking alone would have made the trip worthwhile.
