Prenez le temps de vous échapper dans ce paradis sur terre au cours de cette demi-journée, et laissez la beauté naturelle de la forêt équatoriale d'El Yunque vous séduire avec sa végétation luxuriante, son incroyable faune, ses énormes rochers, ses rivières en cascade et ses vues panoramiques. Visitez la seule forêt équatoriale de la juridiction fédérale des États-Unis, avec plus de 11 331 hectares continus, et plongez dans un paradis sauvage, isolé et unique. Vous serez également imprégné de l'énergie vibrante des rivières d'El Yunque et de l'air pur, comme la tribu indigène des Taïnos il y a des siècles. Au cours de cette excursion, vous visiterez la célèbre Coca Waterfall, le cadre idéal pour des séances photo. Nous nous arrêterons également à la tour d'observation de Yocahú et dans d'autres zones afin que vous puissiez profiter des différentes vues d'El Yunque. Vous ferez un dernier arrêt au Portalito Hub Visitor Center pour des collecter des informations supplémentaires avant de retourner à San Juan.
I would highly recommend this tour. We were picked up at the meeting spot on time by a gentleman who was not out tour guide the guide was stuck in traffic so we were picked up along with another couple and met our guide along the way so as not to have any delays. Great planning on their part. Our guide Norma was a wonderful young woman, very knowledgeable. The tour itself was great, Norma stopped at a local gas station outside the rainforest for a restroom break before the tour because the visitor center in the rainforest was destroyed by Hurricane Maria and is still being repaired. We stopped at a waterfall, a viewing tower and took a hike to a river. We were glad we used this tour instead of trying to navigate it ourselves.
Would definitely recommend.
fantastic trip but can you believe it, it rained in the rain forest, TORENTIAL luckily i had 2 rain macs one for the wife and i gave mine to a rather attractive lady who didn't have one, beside being soaked to the skin for the duration it was far to wet for the camera
First, we did not get to go on the half-tour as there were not enough people for the day we booked. We were upgraded to the El Yunque off the Beaten Path Waterfall Tour and paid the difference the day of to the tour guide, Roberto. Unfortunately, I cannot review that tour since I am only confirmed on Viator for this one however, I am so glad we upgraded to the full day tour, because this is/was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a tour!! This tour was more adventurous than what my friend and I were expecting. We definitely tested our fitness and strength as there was a lot of uphill and downhill trekking in muddy terrain. We were expecting to get dirty, just not expecting the amount of physical effort involved moderate to medium, which was in part due to the main entrance being closed and taking a short cut up to the falls.
Roberto, the tour guide was amazing. I felt very safe with both Roberto and the other tour guide we met at the top, Alex. Both ensured our safety during water activities and rocky terrain. I think they make a great team and work well together both clearly want to ensure a safe and fun experience for everyone involved. I absolutely recommend this tour for anyone looking to experience Puerto Rico and its beautiful rain forest!!
Despite the ongoing recovery of El Yunque, this trip turned out excellent because of our fantastic tour guide - Norma - and the amazing natural waterslides we visited at the end. A great way to spend half the day!
Louis was above amazing as a guide for he has taken the time to learn the history of Puerto Rico and interesting facts that a tourist wouldn't know about the island. Sadly most of the roads in El Yunque park were destroyed and currently closed, but we did see the mountain, waterfalls and had a lovely time.
We were picked up right at our hotel door and when our tour of the Forest was finished Louis took our group to a local grocery store so we could all purchase packaged local coffees to take home. The grocery store pricing for coffee is SO MUCH less expensive than at the gift shops or at the airport. The grocery store stop was a nice surprise and so appreciated.
Louis was wonderful - highly recommend touring the National Park with Louis.
Be ready to get muddy and wet and have a amazing time in the El Yunque rainforest. My driver/guide Alex was great. Because of the two hurricanes San Juan has experienced the walking trails are gone. We walked true rainforest, climbing hills and walking true streams. I loved it. I wore and recommend water shoes. One of the ladies had on Teva the strap broke because when you step in the mud it pulls your shoes when you step out. Alex gave her his shoes and he walked barefooted. You will get the chance to swin and slide off the rocks. If you like truly being outdoors you will love this tour as I did.
We did the full day trip. I wish it was a little bit longer because I really enjoy hiking. But I think that it is good for all types of people. Our tour guide was awesome. He was super knowledgeable and very nice. We didn't swim in the falls because there was a lot of people.
This was a last minute booking and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Our guide was wonderful and so glad we did the whole day and not the half day experience. You wont be disappointed the scenery was breathtaking. Money and day well spent.
So we didn't actually get to do the half day tour. We were the only 2 people booked and they needed at least 6. Instead we switched to the full day tour for 20 more. The tour that we ended up going on was great! We had a really fun time and are glad that we didn't just cancel when we couldn't do the half day
