The only way to experience El Yunque!
Kelly_W, Jan 2022
Franchesca, Bula & Mitchell we’re wonderful guides who helped us navigate El Yunque safely, while also having a blast! The food from the lunch stop afterwards was amazing, too!
Amazing hiking adventure
Sandeep_N, Dec 2021
We loved it. The hiking itself is little challenging. Along the path of the hike we did a natural slide, jumping off from a 15 feet rock into water and using rope from a tree to jump into water. They give life jackets and helmets to every one so no need to worry at all. On the way back they stopped at nectar for lunch, super churros dessert is a must try there.
El Yunque Tourist Attraction
Carolyn_P, Dec 2021
It was a short hike and great glimpse at the lush rain forest. The hiking trail is muddy and slippery and leads to the main attractions- an area where tourists can swing on a rope, jump off a big rock, and/or slide down a naturally formed water slide into a deep water hole. The guides are very attentive too make sure everyone is safe. Due to COVID-19 and Maria, entrance to El Yunque is restricted and other hiking trails may not be open.
High value, great price!
Zachary_Y, Dec 2021
Luis and Julian were wonderful tour guides. They were funny and charming but always made sure that us guests were safe, especially through heavy mud and high river water.
Amazing adventure!
Gina_A, Nov 2021
Great experience! Frankie was our guide and he was amazing and so fun!!! He made sure we all had such a great experience. The water slide was so much fun! We were also given the opportunity to jump off one of the rocks into the pools and that was so thrilling! As someone who is afraid of heights I definitely appreciated Frankie’s encouragement and help getting the courage to jump! I highly recommend this experience for anyone looking for some extra adventure in beautiful PR!!
Don’t miss this!

The crew and guests were all Amazing! Everyone was so supportive and helpful! Yesterday was a day I’ll never forget! The love of my life proposed to me and I said yes. Thank you for making our day unforgettable! Underneath the waterfalls of the rainforest, our journey to Mrs. & Mrs. Beale-Peten began ❤️
It was everything and more!
Yelixa_V, Jul 2021
Our Tour Guides Jonathan and Mitch were absolutely amazing!!! We couldn’t have experienced the rainforest without them. It was fun! It was exciting! It was breathtaking! Obviously the rainforest was beautiful but these guys were hands down the best!!
Best adventure ever!
Tais_I, Jun 2021
My mom and I had the best time on the El Yunque Hiking adventure! Our guides Frankie, Chris, and Mitchell made the trip super fun. Frankie was super knowledgeable about the history of the forest, and Puerto Rico as a whole. All three took time to hold conversations with all of us on the trip and teach us about native plants and other cool things along the trail. We all felt very safe and every one felt supported to jump off the rocks and go down the slides. It was one of the best experiences of my life and I'm so grateful my mom and I could share it for her birthday trip!
Wonderful Adventure
