Rude guide! Do it on your own instead.

I recommend going to the rainforest but I would do it on my own or go with another company. Julian, the tour guide, was incredibly rude to so many people (not us, we just observed) especially people with foreign accents. He seemed unhappy to be there and was grumpy throughout. He didn’t make any effort to make people feel comfortable. In fact, he didn’t allow some people to even walk up to the slide if they are unsure, so some people stayed back even though they could have easily climbed up and down without doing the slide if they didn’t want to. When we got to the slide, he warned people that he would push them if they decided to not go through with it. How is that even allowed?! This isn’t just my opinion. I saw and heard several people complaining about Julian.

My husband’s favorite excursion ever!
Linda_A
, Apr 2022
We’ve enjoyed kayaking, snorkeling, cave tubing, zip lining, hiking, biking, and more. At the end of this day my very active husband said this was his favorite excursion we’ve ever done. The guides were excellent and took your safety seriously but still had a lot of fun. Their directions on how to slide, climb, jump, navigate etc were on point every time. Many thanks to the “Puerto Rican Tarzan” who helped lift us up like we weighed nothing when rocks were difficult to climb. Bring extra money for tipping. If you don’t, you will wish that you had!

Awesome day trip for couples! A++

What an awesome time! My girlfriend and I were looking for an adventure in El Yunque and were not disappointed! While crambling up mud walls, enjoying the natural rock slides and jumping/rope-swinging into the cool rainforest river, our guide Franchecsa taught us a lot of interesting information on the ecology and history of the rainforest. It was hard to keep my eyes on my footing because I kept staring at the greenery and topography around us. Truly a beautiful place, we didn’t want to leave. They take you to a Great spot for a much needed post-hike meal afterwards. Big shout out to our guides/lifeguards/drivers. Franchesca, Bula and (apologies your name is escaping me) were top-notch. Super friendly and accommodating. We’ll be back next time! Muchos Gracias! -Drew

Family Fun

We had an amazing experience. It may have been the highlight of our trip. The hiking was fun, but our families favorite was the water slide. We bonded with our guide and the rest of our group. It was a fun adventure. Few notes: the bus ride was tough on us, we were the first picked up and last dropped off. It was over 5 hours on a bus and only 3 hours in the rainforest. It made for a long day. I wish I would have known that in advance to be able to prepare my children. I was told 1 hour bus ride each way, it was 2.5 each way. No food or drink allowed on the bus. I would have packed snacks for our family at stops. We had a large group of 30 people. I would have liked a smaller group. We only were able to do the waterside once since our group was so large. Overall, I would highly recommend this adventure! We had a blast!

This trip exceeded our expectations and was very enjoyable. Our guide, Julian, made it fun, interesting, and, most importantly, safe. We learned to “embrace the mud” and had a great time.

Great trip, me and my girl had a complete blast and didn’t get hurt at all. Everyone who works for the company is a team and enhances the adventures with safety in mind. I’m not sure if I come back to PUERTO RICO but if I do and I decide to do the trip again I will make sure is with the same team

Julian and George were excellent guides, and the activities were really fun! We had a great time. Be warned: you will get (really) wet! Listen to them when they say to pack light and bring shoes you don’t mind getting muddy and soaking.
