Would recommend this adventure to anyone visiting Puerto Rico! It is not an easy hike and be prepared to get very muddy and wet. Must be moderately active and fit to get through this tour as it has you climbing very steep muddy trails and light rock climbing. Again one of the best things we ever did during our vacation. The tour guides were fantastic, learned a lot of things about the rainforest!
My wife and I have never felt like we were in our 40's, until experiencing this adventure! What an intense workout, and thrilling experience!
Hector and Ponce were wonderful guides, and always offered some type of cool local information about El Yunque. Plus, they helped us navigate a ton of muddy and rocky terrain in a wet environment. We felt safe, secure, and entertained.
The thrills of natural waterslides, cliff jumping, tarzan ropes etc need to be experienced. Just make sure that you are in good physical shape, as this trip is not for the weak.
Tip these guys, well. They earn every penny!
This was an amazing experience; it was everything we hoped for! Our main guide, Hector, was incredible. He had so much knowledge about the rainforest and showed us awesome plants and creatures throughout the hike. Both he and our second guide, Mitchell, did a great job keeping everyone safe at the swimming sites and on the trail. Hector communicated well with us about pick-up time and place and was punctual. I have no complaints; this was a wonderful experience from start to finish. If you want to see El Yunque, this is the way to do it!
My wife and I stayed in San Juan for a week for our honeymooon, and this tour was by far our favorite part of the trip. Hector was an amazing tour guide and was always able to make us laugh as well as keep us safe and informed.
We were picked up from the Caribe Hilton in San Juan and had a great trip over to the rainforest, with Hector pointing out interesting landmarks and giving us a history of the island and its people. The rainforest itself was beautiful and we had so much fun hiking and sliding down natural water slides! The tour guides provided us with fruit in the middle of the hike, including pineapple, papaya, guava, and the best mango I've ever tasted!
It was a fairly easy and very fun hike, and I'd recommend it for people of all ages. My wife and I can't wait to go back to Puerto Rico and take this tour again!
