Seeing the history of this island come alive with the expertise of the archeologist guide is like what I imagine seeing Vienna through the eyes of Mozart might be. This is a truly unique experience to see petroglyphs, symbolic carvings made by the Taino people over 500 years ago. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. I made the mistake of forgetting to inform them ahead of time that I'm vegetarian since lunch is part of the trip, and Javier quickly adjusted the plan and took us to a wonderful local restaurant that had vegetarian options. I can't recommend this tour enough!
From the moment Javier picked us up for this amazing day to the end of the day, our experience was awesome! Javier is friendly, informative, helpful, and fun! His knowledge of the Taino civilization added great commentary to what we were seeing. Without him, this experience would not have been as good. He answered many of our questions with helpful information to help us understand about the Tainos. On the cave portion of this trip, he helped show us more about the Tainos via petroglyphs, pictographs, etc found on the cave walls that the cave tour guide did not explain. Since it rained and the ground was a bit muddy and slippery, he was able to help us down some of the steps and other parts of the trail. We also learned about flora and fauna of where we were and even got to see a rarely seen snake and a huge spider in its web along the hike. Javier's knowledge of anthropology, archaeology, and history was super and made our trip a real learning treat. I would recommend this trip to anyone interested in learning about the early history and civilizations of Puerto Rico. It's meant to both young and old as well!!
What I can recommend is that you wear good walking shoes, especially if it's wet and possibly slippery. Even though I was wearing hiking sandals, this was not enough. I would recommend wearing sneakers with a good tread to help you along the way. Hiking boots are not needed!
From my experience with Javier on this trip, I would recommend taking more of his trips as he is really great!
First off Javier makes this adventure amazing. His knowledge and his pure joy of talking about our island and native heritage kept me excited. The caves are beautiful. The ceremonial grounds are humbling. The experience was one of a kind. We even hooked a second tour in the forest. Do his tours.
I was a bit worried when I booked this tour as there were no prior reviews. However, it turned out to be a five-star experience. Our guide Javier, who holds a master's degree in archeology, shared with us his extensive knowledge about the history, culture and mythology of Puerto Rico. Both my kids and myself have learned a lot from him. Javier is also a very kind and considerate person, and took good care of us. Finally, riding in the new and spacious Audi SUV and having delicious mofongo for lunch further enhance our experience.
