Wear closed toe shoes and don't expect paved trails. Guide was extremely knowledgeable and trip was enjoyable. Would definitely go again.
This truly was an amazing experience. Our guide, Alex, was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable about the forest and was always willing to answer our questions. The hike into the forest was the best part, especially the last waterfall. The market where we ate was very yummy, especially the smoothies. The rock slide was also a lot of fun and a great way to finish the day. Overall it was the best part of our vacation! Potential participants should note that this is not an easy hike. It is steep and it is slippery. You need to be fit enough to do the hike and you also need appropriate footwear.
This tour was amazing!
Be ready for a hike. Alex was a fantastic tour guide, his knowledge of the rain forest and its wildlife was great. Dont be scared of the natural rock slide its awesome!
This tour is truly an adventure, and highly recommended for those that want to challenge themselves and trek deep into a remote part of the rainforest. Alex was our guide, he was knowledgeable and in our case, very patient. We had a small group of six, and he lead us up a rocky ledge with many challenging hills that at times were muddy and steep. The beauty of the rainforest was a site to see and the view of the waterfalls was breathtaking. The natural rock body slide was fun, but rocks around it were pretty slippery, making it difficult for some that wanted to do it, but couldn't. The return trip was the same way we came, again the slippery mud made it a challenge, a couple of us taking some falls, but everyone worked together and we made it out safely. I want to emphasize how patient Alex was and offered a hand and guidance when we needed it, yet allowed us to experience this intense hiking tour for ourselves. Once the hike was done, Alex took us to other sites within the rainforest that were just as breathtaking, but much easier to get around. For lunch we stopped at a local road side food stand, the food was authentic Puerto Rican cuisine, it was delicious!
Good hiking, sightseeing, fun in the waterfalls and 'rock' slides and much more. Stopped at local lunch spot that was delicious. Our guide, Alejandro, was fantastic and made it a special day for all. Highly recommend.
Very good hiking trip, but much harder than we had expected. The description should list this as a difficult hike and not suitable for some people. There were very slippery steep sections that could be dangerous if you are not careful. That being said, the guide Alex was awesome. He took care of the entire group with professionalism and expertise.
The hike itself was a 1000' assent where we saw 3 waterfalls, lots of vegetation, and a few geckos. You take the same route back down the trail, but this can also be a challenge if it is wet. You were defiantly tired and dirty when this trip was complete. They also provided water bottles which you will defiantly want to carry with you.
Overall it was a great trip, but exercise caution if you are not in good shape and have good balance. Make sure you wear hiking shoes/boots, even though a good walking shoe will probably help. No open toe shoes.
The tour was excellent definitely worth the money. Our tour guide Jaime was EXCELLENT and very informative. We went for my best friend birthday. I definitely recommend Jaime for any tour as a tour guide he will make your experience phenomenal.
This hike was amazing, This is definitely a hike meant for those who are somewhat physically fit. You see some amazing waterfalls and you get the chance to do plenty of swimming in them. Alex was so unbelievably knowledgeable and I hope everyone gets a chance to have Alex as a guide. Highly recommend for those that are physically fit.
MUST DO TOUR!!!! My friends and I had heard that El Yunque was a must while in Puerto Rico. We were afraid that we wouldn't really know where to go if we just tried to go ourselves so we decided to book a tour. Our tour guide's name was Michael, and he was amazing!! From the moment he picked us up we felt extremely comfortable with him, he felt like a friend showing us around town. He was very talkative in a non- intrusive way, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable. He answered all of our questions and was very fun and outgoing. We all needed that little push to do things we were scared to do but he made it look so easy and fun that we couldn't help but try, and i'm so glad we did! El Yunque is beautiful! And if you don't know your way around you can easily miss what this place has to offer. Do this tour! And if possible, request Michael!
