The trip itself is about 4 to 5 hrs in smoldering hot heat so be prepared bring a fanny pack of a hand towel or something , water is provided of course.
This trip is not a walk in the park but also you won't go over any extreme things.
Highly recommended, the guides are so friendly and easy going, worth it.

Awesome Rainforest Excursion - Must Do for the Adventurous!
Zinna_S, Oct 2022
Such a fun, memorable time! Make sure to bring hiking or water shoes with good traction. The tour provided great safety gear (helmets and life vests) and our guides, Luis and Adriana, were excellent and always put our safety and enjoyment first. Adriana especially was so enthusiastic and made the hiking fun even when it got a bit tough (be aware there are some challenging climbing and slick rock areas). Very convenient pick-up near our hotel included. Sliding down the volcanic rock waterfall was something I’ll never forget. You can bring your phone in a waterproof case but we preferred unplugging and the guides took great videos and photos throughout that they shared with us.

Wonderful day in El Yunque!
Mariah_G, Oct 2022
This was such a fun tour!! Highly highly recommend. I went with my friend, and we had the best day cliff jumping and sliding down waterfalls. The day ends at a beautiful beach where you can get the best mofongo and drinks.
Highly recommend this company
Carl_F, Jun 2022
Great guides that were very knowledgeable and supportive of all of the people on the hike. We saw other tours without any safety gear. We all went out with helmets and life jackets. The guides put everyone's safety first and modified activities around people's comfort levels.
Awesome experience....
Adolfo_R, May 2022
Awesome experience. Sights and activities are beautiful, guides are amazing and really do a great job to make sure you have a great time. El yunque is gorgeous. Lunch place/food was great. Totally worth doing it!
Rain Forest Adventure
Jennifer_J, May 2022
Our entire family did this excursion in Puerto Rico. We absolutely loved it! It was nice seeing some of the rain forest and the water activities was so awesome! Our tour guide Felix was so much fun! Everyone that helped on the trip was great. We all would totally do it again!
Wet and wild and awesome
Jamie_T, Feb 2022
Julian and George were excellent guides, and the activities were really fun! We had a great time. Be warned: you will get (really) wet! Listen to them when they say to pack light and bring shoes you don’t mind getting muddy and soaking.

Best Experience Ever!
StrongFam5, Aug 2021
So excellent !!!!! Every part of it was incredible. It was 100% worth the extra cost of being picked up in San Juan as it allowed us to just hop on the bus at our condo in Carolina. Our guide was funny and really personable. He did a great job keeping us safe and yet having an adventure! Loved our group too, whic h of course was put together randomly. Clothes will get dirty, and shoes … I wore chavos which worked best for me. The rock slides were so much fun, plus the opportunity to jump off “cliff” and rope swing into a 40’ deep water hole. Despite there being LOTS of people, both tours and local kids & families, it never felt chaotic or disorganized. I would do this again in a heartbeat !! My early 20s and teen kids and my hubby loved this experience !!!
Great feom,beginning to end!
Brian_B, Jul 2021
James and Big Joe were amazing! They were funny, safe and very personable. They helped us all be able to do the activities no matter the skill level. We loved stopping,for lunch on the way home. Our day,was fantastic and smooth feom,beginning to end! Thank you for a great experience.
Best Tour Ever!

Amazing tour guides, once in a lifetime experience, highly recommend
Claire_I, May 2021
Our tour guides Feliz, Christian, and “Tarzan” (Mitchell I think was his real name) were fantastic. They were all so much fun and made sure it was a memorable experience for everyone. You can tell how much they love their jobs. The rockslides and cliff jumps were amazing and even if you’re not into those things, the views on the hike are worth it alone. We were worried because we forgot waterproof phone cases so we couldn’t bring our phones but they took some great pictures and videos so we never even needed them. I would say you should be cautious about going on this adventure if you’re elderly, or have any physical ailments. Some parts were difficult to do but I also saw older couples and very young children completing them so if you’re up for the challenge you’ll be fine. 10/10 recommend this experience, highlight of my time in San Juan.
Fun
Charron_B, May 2021
Pick up at 9 am they will text you or call and check your temp then proceed to pick up other riders . The trip itself is about 4 to 5 hrs in smoldering hot heat so be prepared bring a fanny pack of a hand towel or something , water is provided of course. Francisco aka Frankie. Was the most awesome guide! he was attentive to make sure everybody was safe and comfortable (unfortunately I took a nasty fall and nobody laughed which was nice ). He also was very well informed about the trip from start to finish and you can tell he loves what he do . And the driver and the other guide I can't remember their names but they were helpful as well . Thank you guys for the awesome trip to the rainforest.
AMAZING - MUST DO for anyone who loves outdoor adventure
Michael_H, May 2021
We were in PR for a week, and scheduled several excursions. Our adventure in El Yunque was far and away the best time of all! 1. The guides - Frankie and (Silent) Chris were fantastic! Friendly, extremely informative about the rainforest, and very helpful along the way. 2. El Yunque is amazing! A sub-tropical rainforest experienced in a 4 hour hike. Beautiful scenery, with diverse species of plants and trees along a mountainous river trek. 3. A natural 'water park' like no other! Cliff diving, rope swings into pools, waterfalls that function as water slides - all in crystal clear river water. The hike is a rigorous workout, but if you pay attention to the guides and follow their instructions, you don't have to be a mountain climber to do it. You will get muddy, and probably be a bit sore the next day, but it is sooooo worth it.
Phenomenal Excursion
Ashlai_P, May 2021
Highlight of our trip! The hike was serene and the waterfalls were beautiful. Our tour guide was amazing. Jaime and his crew made sure everyone was safe and had as much fun as possible. The locals work with them to make sure everyone has a spectacular time. I lost my phone at the bottom of the waterfall twice and they took the time and effort to find it for me. 🥴 The lunch afterwards was top notch and you get a true Puerto Rican experience. There really isn’t enough to say about this trip. We had a blast!

Excellent tour! Worth the experience! Jumping into the water and sliding down waterfalls! The guide made us feel safe and let us take it at our own pace. Learned a lot about the forest and the native life and history, and with a lifetime adventure! Lgbt friendly.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE NORMA!! and the adventures she took us on while visiting the El Yunque Rain Forest and Waterfalls. Norma was pleasant, smart, funny and informative, and made sure our needs were met during the entire day. She's very knowledgeable about Puerto Rico, has a great personality and makes you feel like family which I LOVED. We had the greatest group of 10 from various locations which made getting to know eachother an experience within itself. The family styled restaurant she took us to food was the BEST we've eaten the entire trip and the Mojitos was refreshing and the service was GREAT. I look forward to visiting San Juan again and will be contacting Bespoke for another adventure.
My most favorite of all activities...
floy s, Apr 2018
My most favorite of all activities, Tour guide excellent, The trail was fascinating the guide was good at answering questions about the environment and identifying various vegetation and wild life. The clear river water we were able to swim in and swing from a rope, cliff dive and go down a natural water slide was more fun then any man made water park I have ever been at.
This was a great tour. Loved the...
Thomas O, Nov 2017
This was a great tour. Loved the waterfalls, the swim and the walk in the rain forest. The stop at the information centre wasn't very exciting, and the time here could have been spent differently, but overall a good trip.

Must do
Eleni_M, Sep 2022
My mom and I did the El Yunque Rainforest and it was amazing and so much fun. Sliding down the rock slide and jumping off cliffs was the best part. Our tour guide Frankie was amazing and so funny we loved him. I recommend this for everyone to do. I would definitely do it again.
Excursion of a lifetime
Kevin_T, Sep 2022
The River, Just awesome. Felix “Cha Cha Chang” our tour guide was the best. This tour was so worth every penny. Don’t skip this trip while staying in Puerto Rico.
