Traveler Tips


This tour requires a medium level of fitness as you will be doing difficult hikes in narrow spaces.
If you are not adventurous or have fear on heights, this is not the activity for you.
I do not suggest wearing hiking sandals close toed rubber sneakers work best.

10/10 CHOOSE THIS RAINFOREST EXPERIENCE OVER ANY OTHER
Nicole_G, May 2022
10/10 would recommend this tour to anyone considering the rainforest tour/ water rockslide adventure. I cannot brag on enough how amazing our tour guide was - compared to other tour groups in the area he ensured we got to jump from EVERY rock and slide down EVERY slide. I am so thankful to have chosen this tour because we had so much fun while getting to learn about the rain forest at the same time - staff even took complimentary photos and videos. After the rainforest tour they took us to a beach front strip full of local restaurants to try it was 10/10. Hotel pick up was provided, all staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, we felt safe the whole time.
Fantastic tour!
Tarah_K, May 2022
We had a great time on our tour. Our tour guide, Jason, was so helpful and shared so many great facts about El Yunque. We enjoyed ourselves and had a fantastic time.
Go jump in a river with Felix.
Carl_F, May 2022
Got time to play in a rainforest river - after a short hike (which was bit crowded - lots of tour groups out that day) visited a gorgeous spot with a natural waterslide and (totally doable) cliff jump, along with a swing over the basin. On the way back to town, the bus stopped at the Luquillo kioskos. Our guide (Felix) was excellent. Enthusiastic, clear, supportive, and took safety seriously. Gave recommendations for the strongest drinks in Luquillo :-) Took photos/video during the tour and, ion the bus ride back, shared them with everyone (using AirDrop or WhatsApp) - I was impressed by this level of tech-savvy guest service.
Disappointed experience
Yelena_S, May 2022
The trip time was changed from 8 am to 7 am. We were waiting in the lobby. The driver sent us a text , which we missed , and left without us. He could walk to the lobby or ask valet guy outside to call us. After we catch the tour van by Uber, we were riding with a tour guy for another two ours. When we arrived to the forest he said the rive is too high we can not cross it to continue the hike. He canceled the tour and we drove back another 2 hours. It was very disappointed experience.
Unfortunately we did not...
Marnicia_C, May 2022
Unfortunately we did not get to go to the tour because the rainforest was too full to cross the River.
