We had a nice hike through the forest. Waterfall was popular, even in the offseason.
This tour was fantastic! Omar was the absolute BEST! He was incredibly knowledgable, gracious, friendly, accommodating, and fun! We had a Great time and there was SO much to see and experience. When I come back to San Juan, I will do this again and add the kayaking in the bioluminescent bay to my tour. I can't wait!!
This tour was amazing!
Alex is an excellent guide. He is friendly, responsible and caring. He knows a lot about botanic. I am a biologist, and Alex has a great biology background. He is knowledgeable about the rain forest ecosystem, fauna and flora. Outstanding performance.
Our tour started with a pick up at our hotel from our tour guide Norma around 10am. She was so friendly and extremely informative. We headed to the El Yunque visitor center where Norma showed us around then we drove to the hike. It was not difficult but wear sneakers because you will walk a lot and some of it uphill. Bring that camera! The best part was the waterfall...it was crowded but what an experience! Bring water shoes and be careful with the rocks. Norma brought us to Yokahu tower where we climbed to the top not very high and enjoyed the views. We then had a fantastic Puerto Rican lunch at a nice little restaurant and they even had a vegetarian option. Norma got us back to our hotel around 5:30pm. It was a long but wonderful tour and would definitely do it again.
This was a truly a unforgettable and amazing adventure from start to finish was incredible and well-executed and thoughtful. Everyone knows Jaime...truly everywhere we stopped people would yell out his name and come give him a hug and chat with him. I don't believe I have ever met a more down-to-earth and kind human being. He is extremely knowledgeable about anything and everything in Puerto Rico. I would highly recommend Jaime to anyone going to Puerto Rico. You are not only going to get a tour guide, but you are going to gain a true friend!
This tour was booked for my son and daughter-in-law. They were changed to a similar one because there were not enough people going. They had an amazing time with their tour guide Luis J Pantoja. Along with having a great time, they learned so much about forest/ Puerto Rico history and enjoyed it! They would like to do another tour with this guide.
The rainforest is beautiful and Norma, our guide, was fantastic, She was punctual, personable and very knowledgeable. We could not have asked for a better guide. The van was absolutely spotless. Norma picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel, just as promised.
Although it takes a while to get from San Juan to the rainforest 45 min?, it was a pleasant drive and gives you an opportunity to see more of the island.
The tour itself hits the highlights of the park: the visitor center, hiking trails, waterfalls and lookout tower. The forest and waterfalls are beautiful and the views from the lookout tower are absolutely amazing. The US Parks Service does a great job of maintaining the park, it is clean and well maintained.
We left San Juan at 8:30 am and got back to our hotel about 4 pm. Norma took us to a local restaurant after the tour. The restaurant was small, we were the only group there so it was private dining! Food and service were great, true Puerto Rican food and very reasonable.
We would love to go back and explore on our own as we now know what to expect.
A word of caution, the trails in the rainforest are narrow. uneven and steep in sections. Not a true hard core hike but if you are limited physically, it could be a challenge.
We look forward to returning to Puerto Rico to explore more of the beautiful island.
I had such a great time with Omar! Pack a poncho and water shoes. I didnt do that and wished I had. I followed him down to the hidden away waterfall and it was amazing. The rest of the group went on to the main waterfall but he didnt rush me and the two others. That was the best part of the day!!
Had a wonderful day with new friends enjoying the scenery and hiking the Rainforest. This should be on everyone's list when visiting Puerto Rico. Loved the added bonus of enjoying local cuisine.
