EPIC PR. ADVENTURE!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Frances_O

What an EPIC adventure! Highly recommend this to anyone who wants to experience nature at its best and push themselves and others out of their comfort zone. Things to know: READ!! They are clear about expectations you are going to get muddy and sweaty, you are going to climb up and down slippery rocks, you are going to be fully submerged and swimming in a ( cold) deep water river and you are going to love every minute of it. We were scheduled with the 9:45am group. The hike is NOT 4 hours long as originally assumed, it breaks down to a 30/40min drive to a private location then a 30min walk ( on muddy rocky path) to the river /waterfall 2 hours approx. at the river ( this is the best part) and 30min walk back to your car. ( arrived at 2pm) Where you get to hose down mud and change into dry clothes, if you want. Recommend: Eat breakfast and wear good tracking shoes hiking sandal or sneakers are the best. Bring your phone ( even if they say not to ) only if it’s waterproof protected and around your neck ( you can bring a backpack but it will get soaked) If you are unable, don’t worry the guides take pictures and email them to you. NOT immediately so be patient , this is what we call island time. Good news: NO mosquitos or insects to worry about, so no bug spray necessary. Do wear eco friendly sunblock if you need to, most of the walk is in the shade. Patricia and Aumari were incredible guides helpful, funny and very knowledgeable of El Yunque and it’s unique ecosystem. They provided us with fresh fruit at the river ( nice touch) and water, granola bars and beer at the end of the excursion. My son who is 13 said it the best “mom, this exceeded my expectations” I couldn’t have agree more. My group of 5 included: 3 adults age 50, a 16 and 13 year old. Hope this helps! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Maxine and Jesse were amazing! Not only did they provide fun, factual tidbits along the way, we noticed that they kept the hike moving (other guides seemed to take longer than necessary). They were safe, as well - giving excellent guidance as to how to navigate the muddy trail. They encouraged everyone to stay at their own pace, but also encouraged everyone to be daring when it came to the cliff jump. We were the only group that was provided fruit, which was so refreshing in the warm weather. It was a really beautiful, fun experience that we can’t wait to do again!

Jami and Bradley were great guides. Loved the water. Hike was muddy and challenging for some but still a good experience. I opted not to take my 7 year old up to the waterfall slide and glad i didn't. It would have been too difficult for her. I do wish we could have seen some wildlife but trail is very crowded and loud.
