My guide (Jacob) was great and it was a nice day trip. Please note: you won't spend more than 40 minutes hiking. This is NOT a heavy hiking gig. You'll hike a little bit (yes, it's muddy, there'll be tons of rocks, and it's somewhat difficult; hiking boots are essential), but you'll spend most of your time relaxing by a waterfall, jumping off cliffs to the water etc. For me, it was more of a "water thing" than a "hiking thing." Still worth it, but I was expecting hours and hours of hiking, which didn't happen.
This tour was unreal. Our guide, Alex, was the perfect mix of adventurous and cautious, accommodating and understanding, and unbelievably knowledgable on all things about the rainforest. He actively participated in all of the activities, so as to encourage others to participate. He very thoroughly investigated safety issues and possible risks throughout the day. He catered to the crowd and adapted the hike to support the wants/needs of all members of the tour. He explained all of the things we were doing and how to properly and safely participate. This was easily the most exciting and invigorating tourist activity I've ever paid for. If I knew it would be this awesome, I would have been willing to pay three times as much. While the hike and the activities were incredible, Alex's enthusiasm, passion, and interest in everyone's enjoyment really made this tour the best.
I will note that the description may need to be a bit more explicit in the level of physical activity/difficulty this tour entails. The hike itself was definitely more rigorous than I was expecting, though very pleased with it. You will be required to get in the water at certain points on the hike, even if not choosing to swim in the pools/waterfalls. I do think the level of adventure and difficulty would likely vary depending on your guide, but it is worth noting that the current description was much tamer than my personal experience which again I totally loved.
Excellent hike for those with some experience and can climb a few flights of stairs and dont mind getting muddy. if I had to do over again I would have booked the trip with people I knew. You never know who shows up. I find peple who are late to booking times, really inconsiderate. its NOT all about you. That said, Alex was extremely considerate, well informed and prvovided fun for all. The swimming was great in the waterfalls. Saw some birds, snails, Coqui!! I would do it again. Boots or shoes with serious tread strongly advised.
Well worth the money. Be aware this is no leisure hike, especially back up hill. On the way down the morning rain made the rocks slippery and dangerous, however our tour guide alex was patient and gave great advice. We stopped at 2 waterfalls and alex said roundtrip is ~3miles.
It was an amazing hike. Alex our guide was very professional and knowledgeable and fun. It is not an easy hike, and I would recommend hiking boots. It is very slippery and muddy. Great hike, loved the waterfalls and trails. Highly recommend this hike.
We took this because it had great reviews. Alex picked us up at our hotel, he was great, very knowledgeable and full of enthusiasm. Our tour was exceptional, we saw absolutely no one else while on this tour. Swam in the rivers and waterfalls, you won't regret this tour, Alex will make it great!
This tour was amazing! It was probably the coolest part of our trip to Puerto Rico and I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a unique way to explore El Yunque. When they say this tour is for the physically fit, they mean it. It involves a lot of climbing and walking over roots, rocks, and through water. Also if you are afraid of heights you might want to stay behind but if you think you can handle it then you should definitely do it. The restaurant that you eat lunch at is authentic Puerto Rican that you won't find in the tourist areas of San Juan, the food is delicious. Overall this was an amazing tour!!
This was absolutely an incredible tour!
Alex was great; very knowledgeable and very personable. He did his best to make sure that everyone made it in and out in one piece, and had a good time doing it. This was way outside my wife's comfort zone, but Alex helped her through the rough spots.
