Fun Filled Experience

All I can say is wow! Our day trip to El yunque was beyond amazing, started with some of the best Puerto Rican coffee and then we went to the trail. There wasn’t a time where Andres wasn’t was telling us information about the small towns we drove by, land formations, food, plants and so much more. The hike itself wasn’t easy but it definitely wasn’t hard either, he was very helpful with where to put your feet when climbing on rocks and the waterfalls. Oh, and the pictures! Andres was always taking pictures of us and at the end he sent them to us and now I have some amazinggg memories to look back on. Never a dull moment with him. You also get a lot of helpful information a day before and I would bring everything he listed. We used mostly everything that we brought. All I can say is you will have an amazing fun filled day if you book this experience! Gracias x100 Andres!

Andre was absolutely wonderful from the very beginning. He was very clear with his instructions and the best cheerleader if you were in the back. It is a hike for those who are looking for adventure. And the food was amazing! Anytime I come back to PR, I will absolutely be giving Andre a call!

Our guide Andre provided a challenging but fantastic daylong experience unlike any other I’ve known. He prepared us well before the trip, cautioned us to be ready for a rigorous hike and then rewarded us with his love of the mountains, his sure-footedness and his friendly personality. Highly recommend for fit travelers up for fun in the forest and incredible waterfalls

This excursion was one of kind! At times it felt like a challenge course which made it very fun. Take shoes with good grip. It definitely helps. The fruit at the last waterfall was a plus! Andre was an excellent tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and kept us safe the entire time. This was our favorite guided activity. Some of us were still sore the next day but it was definitely worth it!

Truly incredible excursion! You could not get this experience on your own, and it has an intimate feel as it is away from other tours/people. Andre is kind, fun and knowledgeable. His love of nature preservation and restoration is obvious. Follow Andre’s suggestions of attire and supplies needed! You will get muddy, wet, and need shoes with a good grip. The coffee and lunch stops were unique and delicious. 10/10 would recommend!

Loved exploring authentic Puerto Rico!

We had the most amazing excursion into the heart of the island! We got to experience the authentic Puerto Rico without the crowds! We really enjoyed the rainforest hike and swimming in the waterfall pools. It was an adventurous hike but was totally worth the effort. Andre was encouraging and taught us about some of the plants along the way. The food was also amazing- Andre knows the best place to get a delicious and affordable meal! Andre was very knowledgeable and gave us travel recommendations around the island. He also was happy to take some photos for us to remember our amazing day exploring PR!

BEST EXPERIENCE IN PR!!
SARA
, Aug 2021
THE BEST DAY WE HAD IN Puerto Rico! Andre was the best tour guide. Great energy, so knowledgable, and made sure we were safe and comfortable the whole time. He really made the day incredible, and if you're a coffee lover, you definitely have to try out this tour. After the coffee tour, we hit the mountains and hiked to see three beautiful waterfalls and natural pools. He cut us some fruit while we were enjoying the pools, and also took incredible photographs. After the day, we were able to eat with the locals at a chinchorro in the countryside with an incredible view of Ciales. 100% doing another excursion with Andre when I return to PR. Disclaimer: Hike is intense (7/10 intensity level), so bring waterproof hiking shoes with traction.

Unforgettable experience
Maddie_R

This tour is called off the beaten path for a reason. It wasn't super "touristy" and it was an actual challenge, which it made it worthwhile! We hiked to three waterfalls and let me the say, arriving to that first waterfall and swimming in the pool is actual paradise. André was the most charismatic host and made an effort to engage with everyone, which made it a real bonding experience. It was absolutely beautiful and hands down the best thing I did on my trip. I highly recommend to anyone wanting a real hike and breathtaking views!

So worth it! Andres and Jacob were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The tour flowed well from the coffee before the hike and the food after. The waterfalls were absolutely beautiful. Keep in mind this hike was somewhat physically demanding so be prepared for that! Andre was very passionate and gave great knowledge on the history of everything. I love how off the beaten path this tour was. Overall this tour was an amazing value for the price.

Andre was an amazing guide; very helpful, vocal, and educated you throughout the whole tour. This hike is definitely not for anyone out of shape lol; it challenged me in a few areas and I’m a military veteran. Lunch and the view at the end put the cherry on top 👍🏾

There was so much to love about this adventure. The pictures truly does not do it justice. Andre was such an amazing guide as we traveled to see some of the most beautiful parts of Puerto Rico. First we stopped at a beautiful coffee shop with great food and a great scenery with plants and animals. Then, we took a drive to the hiking area. This is a REAL hiking experience. I would suggest good hiking shoes and a change of clothing. I would also suggest bringing a second pair of shoes, to change into at the end of the trip as your shoes will most likely get wet in the water. Andre has prepared for every moment with fruit to quench your appetite and a changing tent to get out of your wet clothing at the end. At the end of the trip we travel to a great restaurant with amazing food for a great price. Andre wore many hats being our guide, photographer, waiter and more he was truly a great host and made us feel very welcomed. I recommend doing this tour if you are looking for a great adventure you are missing out on a great experience if you don’t.
