    Jerry was very patient as he should have been being that the pictures to this tour are false advertisement. This is more of a nature walk, magic school bus, history lesson type of feel. No water slides or waterfalls, so do not expect it. Most of the tour you are looking out the window from the bus. You get about 30 min to swim in El yunque and then your done. I was very disappointed with this tour, if you are looking to explore El yunque book another tour cause this was not it. I actually left the tour from sheer disappointment. Thanks but no thanks.

    Hi Angelica, This is, indeed, a Nature Walk within the El Yunque National Forest Reserve. The history lesson is a plus; the drive from San Juan takes about 40 minutes, and we prefer to spend that time sharing our heritage rather than listening to music. We don't have any photographs of waterslides on this tour, however you can find this type of tour advertised on VIATOR, the same booking platform where we advertise our Nature Walk. Nature interpretation is not for everybody. Thank You Alexander

    Our tour guide was amazing -so friendly and knowledgeable about Puerto Rico! We loved that there was two spots to visit - just the perfect amount of time to swim in the rainforest and then get a great lunch. Wonderful tour!

    Extremely enjoyable experience. I was hoping to walk more along the river to see more of the vegetation of the rainforest. The river spot to swim, the water was very cool and refreshing. I am happy our tour guide was more concerned about everyone’s safety regardless if you’re an excellent swimmer compared to another group at the river site. I enjoyed listening to the history and learning such great details of Puerto Rican history. I am most definitely interested in learning more about this. I high recommend anyone who enjoys swimming but do not expect a hiking trek.

    Sweet and smart lady. I wish the description mentioned the national park is EL YUNQUE. The beach was beautiful. They also had the magnificent option for us to go kayaking last minute which I loved.

    Beautiful River and Beach

    Lisa was an excellent tour guide! and Ingrid was a wonderful driver. Lisa gave so much history about Puerto Rico. The walk to the river was definitely a walk, not a hike, so if you are wanting to be deep in the rainforest this tour may not be for you. The trail took us to a beautiful river, that had a 15-foot platform to jump from and a rope swing. You will definitely be proud of yourself if you do the jump. After an hour of swimming in the river, we went to Luquillo beach where there was a strip of 60+ shops and restaurants. We had 2 hours which was perfect to get a bite to eat, and enjoy the beautiful beach. Overall, it was an amazing day, and the highlight pf our trip.

    Fun Day at El Yunque and Luqillo Beach!

    The tour is exactly what you want if you're not a hiker, nature-lover type of person like me...lol! It gives you a touch of the rainforest without being too overwhelming. Martin the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about Puerto Rocan culture and history, his english was very good for non-spanish speakers and overall he was just AWESOME! We travel with a cool group and the day was absolutely perfect. Luquillo beach is BEAUTIFUL, be sure to bring cash to rent umbrella and chairs becuse there's little shade. Would HIGHLY recommend this tour!

    This excursion was great! Our tour guide Lisa aka Grandma Lisa and our driver Rafael aka my birthday twin were the BEST! The hike was not long but be aware that your shoes probably will get muddy so wear shoes that you wouldn’t mind getting dirty. Also the trail has a lot of rocks and they can be slippery (it’s in a rain forest) so watch your step. The stream in the rain forest is cool and refreshing. Also, when you get to the beach you will have around 2 hours there. If you want to do do anything like jet skiing I would advise you to head str8 for the beach so that you can get it in immediately then get something to eat or buy souvenirs. All in all this was a really enjoyable trip and I would do it again!

    Louie our tour guide was great & very familiar with PR & the rainforest! This tour(1 hour)consisted of a small walk to the river where we had the opportunity to jump from a rocky cliff and/or rope swing into the waters. We also got a chance to stop at a local fruit/food stand before being dropped off at Laquillo Beach. There are many kiosks at the beach(2hrs) for food, drinks, ski jets & etc.

    Our guide was amazing! His history skills made the trip a true pleasure. We felt safe with his awesome driver, since the descent into the rainforest is a nail biter. The rainforest was beautiful and the river was stunning.

    It was the perfect day! You get to experience a beginner hike to the rainforest, local food and a beautiful beach. Definitely worth the experience and money. Good for those who want to visit the rainforest without an intense hike

    Martin, our tour guide, was very good, and very knowledgeable about the history, flora and fauna of Puerto Rico. The hike was just right for someone with a an untrustworthy ankle.The place he took us for lunch was also excellent. I would recommend this tour to other people visiting Puerto Rico.

    This was a nice trip. We really enjoyed our guide. He was friendly and knowledgeable. The time allotted for the hike was a decent amount and getting to jump off of the rocks into the water was very refreshing. It was also my first time swinging from a rope into water. We really didn’t spend much time at the beach but that was ok. We were able to sit down and eat a good lunch. Also did a a little shopping. It was a very enjoyable day and would recommend it to friends. We are waiting though for pictures that our guide took with his GoPro. Any help with getting a link to those pictures would be great!!
