    Hector was a very informative and lively host which gave the trip verve and brought our group together. I would recommend him as a guide and will definitely book another trip the next time I am in Puerto Rico (which I hope is soon)

    This was an amazing experience. Alejandro was a knowledgeable, kind and funny guide who made the trek so much fun. If you’re okay with getting wet and muddy, would highly recommend this experience for all those up for a little adventure :)

    If you’re looking for an awesome experience in the Yunque rainforest, look no further. Alejandro was absolutely fantastic and went out of his way to make the trip memorable for everybody in the group. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and always made sure everyone was safe at all times. He taught us a lot about the history of the rainforest while keeping everything fun and exciting. We noticed other groups/tours throughout the day but they were extremely large and seemed unorganized. Everybody in the group said they felt so lucky to have picked this tour with Alejandro over the others and I truly believe he delivered the best experience possible.

    This activity was so worth it! Alejandro was fantastic. He educated us about the history and the rainforest and kept us safe when going down the rock water slides. You WILL GET WET AND MUDDY and when he says leave everything behind, listen to him. You do not need your towel. Or your change of clothes. Or even your phone. He will take photos and airdrop them! This really does involve mobility. We were climbing up some rock walls and slippery roots of trees at times. So if you have “bad knees” or a “bad hip” consider a different excursion. Otherwise… BOOK THIS!!

    Alejandro was amazing! Perfect tour guide. There were 5 of us including an 8 year old. We went down the slides, jumped off rocks, swam, hiked in and out different routes along the river. He also included ecological information to help us understand the Yunque rainforest a bit more. We had a great time. I highly recommend this trip. It was better than booking a tour company that had up to 50 people. We also were able to get there earlier and leave before it was too crazy. It was a very enjoyable experience.
