This tour was incredible! The driver we had made the tour special. His knowledge about Puerto Rico was a tremendous asset! He accommodated all our needs and really went above and beyond his duties making the entire trip even more enjoyable. The driver picked our family up at our hotel. We made our rounds picking up an additional seven passengers. At the rain forest, we went on a quick hike where the driver pointed out various vegetation, insects, snails, etc. He took us to the visitor area where we saw a movie then back to the van driving up to another area of the rain forest where we went on a longer hike and quite fittingly it rained several times. We stopped at Yokahu Tower on the way back down and made a special stop where the driver bought us a bunch of bananas from a local who lived along the road. We stopped for lunch adjacent to Luquillo Beach. You could chose from many stalls, however we all took the suggestion of the driver and chose the restaurant La Parrilla. Lunch took about an hour. What a great place for lunch, plenty of food and the driver made sure that restaurant staff took good care of us. Then off to the beach where we spent about an hour and a half. A nice beach area with calm water and life guards. Showers and changing facilities are available for 1.00. On our way home we passed eatery stalls and people were talking about food so we made a special stop for coconut water. What a wonderful trip and opportunity to really experience Puerto Rico!
So much fun! Our guide was fantastic and knew lots of interesting facts!
We absolutely loved our tour! We had the best tour guide ever. He was very informative and showed us every little detail. We plan to go back again and will definitely take this tour again!
It was very informative and fun. I really enjoyed the tour of the Yunque and loved Luquillo beach.
We had a great guide! Only problem was that we had a flat while in El Yunque and didn't get to go on to Luquillo Beach.
This tour was unforgettable. It was an amazing experience. It rained, but that didn't stop us from taking the tour and making it the best we could. The tour guy we had was awesome! I commend him on his knowledge.
The rainforest and the beach were both beautiful. It was fun and very informational to have a sort of riding tour on the way there. Our tour guide made the trip extra special and even more fun!! We loved him!
The experience was fantastic! I would have paid much more money than I did for the experience. The hour long walk on the trail in the rain forest was great, as was the time spent at the beautiful Luquillo beach. I honestly think that one of the best parts was the ride to and from on the trip with our tour guide. He was wonderful! He had a very positive attitude, was people friendly, and had so much wisdom of Puerto Rican culture and history. I learned more from him on the trip than from my experiences combined in the country.
Simply put, it was great! El Yunque Rainforest and Luquillo Beach are just amazing and beautiful. My family and I had a lot of fun. What really made the difference was the tour guide. He was friendly and very knowledgeable. He accommodated all our needs and wants and really went above and beyond his duties making the entire trip even more enjoyable.
The tourguide did his best but the rainforest had no animals such birds or lizards, not even flowers. That was disappointing. The luquillo beach was a lot calmer than the atlantic ocean in San Juan, but the Sand was very dirty and you couldn't walk barefoot. Food was ok. Worth visiting though.
Great way to get out of San Juan for the day. Perfect amount of time at El Yunque (for me, anyway--if you want in-depth than look for another tour) and at the beach. Clean van that took us there, great tour guide.
Good experience, perfect weather. Tour guide Robert was knowledgeable and friendly.
Tour van was okay, not the most comfortable or best viewing from the far back seat.
Food at the beach was not good.
