I had a wonderful experience. I completed the tour with Tashia. She was so wonderful and friendly. We didn't stay at a hotel and didn't know what to expect in terms of us getting picked up, but she picked us right at our Airbnb. On the way to the rainforest we stopped at a charming side of the rode fruit store. Then on the drive to the rainforest she was very informative and knowledgeable as a guide telling us things about the local area. The hike itself wasn't that look or too strenuous for me as a young relatively fit person. The path was pretty muddy, so expect to get dirty. Then we got to the swimming hole at the river and had plenty of time to relax and enjoy the water. Tashia was friendly enough to cut up fresh fruit to snack on while there. After the hike she took us a strip with tons of restaurants, with lots of verity, and the food was delicious.

Tips are wear your bathing suit under clothes on the hike in. Have bug spray, and sunscreen. Wear long pants to prevent put bites. Be prepared to get very muddy. Have good sneakers you don't mind getting dirty. Bring a back pack with a towel, watershoes or flip flops because the ground at the swimming hole is rocky. Bring a change of clothes to keep with you in the car that you can change into after the hike.

I would recommend this tour to everyone.

If you're looking to see just see the sights, pick another tour. If you're looking for a taste of what it's like to actually travel through a rainforest on foot, THIS is probably the tour for you.
Manuel was a very good guide, informative and attentive to safety for all. Expect this tour to be weather-sensitive...subject to cancellation and/or re-schedule due to weather conditions. Expect mud, slippery roots/rocks,and generally wet/humid conditions. Choose your clothing/ footwear carefully leave the flip flops in the tour van! Expect that you WILL traverse MOVING water more than once, and that water MAY be as high as your waist and contain some slippery rocks. Bring your own liquids for the tour it's not supplied. If you bring your phone/camera for photos, consider some type of waterproof protection.

Amazing!!! Our guide, Manuel, made this trip one we will always remember. His kindness and helpfulness were above and beyond for all members of our group. We had a blast!

This was an excellent alternative to the larger party groups that descend upon El Yungue. It is a bit boring travelling from San Juan to the rain forest but our guide kept us engaged and we had a couple of stops en route to break the monotony. By using a private entrance we avoided the hoards and had a lovely pool with both a rock jump and a swing. Lunch comprised fruit that each of us had bought at roadside stalls and was expertly prepared by our guide. The only aspect I would have changed is extending the time allocated to grab some lovely ethnic food on the return leg. Rushing my meal was disappointing. Overall a great experience with a wonderful guide.

The rainforest was very nice, but we felt skimped in some of the promised experiences. We stopped at a market but were given no opportunity to buy our own fruits. Our tour guide did not pick up fruit for our group and cut it for us in the rainforest. Instead he had us share fruit with another group from the same tour company which was slightly uncomfortable as we clearly were not a part of their group. He talked on the phone and texted while driving us from San Juan to El Yunque. He did not ask our opinion before driving us to a seafood restaurant for lunch in which he had our entire tour group I was only with my SO sit together for a generally awkward lunch considering we were all strangers. Overall, it was an odd experience. Enjoyable, but odd. I don't think I would do this again or recommend it.

Fico our tour guide was awesome but very disappointed in the amount of trash in the rainforest so that was very disappointing!

You must take this tour! Manuel was an amazing guide. The hike was a little rough at first, but became easier as we went along. The fruit we ate at our stop was the best fruit I've ever eaten, and the sights were incredible.

Fantastic even for a middle aged person with bad knees. Lol. The guide was great.
