We loved this tour! The rainforest nature walk requires shoes with good grip and is muddy, but so beautiful and fun! Had the best tour guides, loved Donatello and his partner(great sense of humor!) Kayaking at night is amazing!

We did enjoy the experience and the guides were great. Overall I would recommend it. I only had an issue contacting the company before the event to confirm our pick-up. They only operate via the phone number provided on the ticket. However, when we travel, we rely on Wi-Fi. They do not answer via WhatsApp or the Viator communication system.
Good for families

The overall experience for a family with younger kids was great. It wasn't too much for them to handle, especially an 8yr old with a heart condition. Short hike, fun swimming and cliff jumps, rope swings. Wasn't too difficult of a kayak excursion either. However, my reason for a three star is that hike and kayak were way off from what I felt was advertised. We hiked in maybe 10mins to a large pool, where we swam and it was a cool vibe. But that's all you really did on the hike, the rest of the couple hours for this portion was swimming. Didn't really get to see much else. The kayak tour was a crapshow to say the least. We didn't see really anything that we were hoping for like the bay lighting up. The kayaking itself was a fail of epic proportions. You go down a narrow canal for about 20mins, which is pretty cool. Mangroves on either side, cool scenery. However, going back when done with biobay is a madhouse. Going upstream, many novice kayakers, in complete darkness was a mess. I think they should hand out headlamps to everyone so you can see what's in front of you. The same mangroves that were cool in the dusk created an absolute pitch black kayak upstream in the evening. So again, I think overall it's a great trip for families with kids as it's not too strenuous and they can see a lot. For maybe older travelers it's not quite what I'd want for a excursion.
A nice day

Trekking through the mud, jumping from a rope swing, and trying to reach a waterfall. We only heard one instruction at a time. None of us knew we were hanging out in the swimming hole for so long. It was nice but I felt like we were waiting to be told just a little more information. Same with kayaking. She/He only told us the next thing, never an overview of our time. The website also left out good descriptions for what to expect.
Awesome tour guide
Ariana_W, Jun 2021
The best thing about the tour was the driver and rainforest tour guide Rafael and Louie. They were amazing! Really sweet and funny! The tour itself wasn’t really what we expected. The rainforest portion was short and due to rainy weather we weren’t able to enjoy the river as much as we would have liked to. We stayed at the in between beach too long and It was very lackluster. Trash all around It due to inconsiderate tourist I’d assume, and there wasn’t much to do There. As for the kayaking experience not all of the tour guides were helpful and there wasn’t much “glow” due again to rainy and cooler weather. I would do this tour again for Louie and Rafael but that’s it.
Not what expected
Carina_M, Apr 2021
Rainforest very short walk, disappointed. Luquillo Beach not the best beach to go. Laguna Grande was nice, canoes and guide tourist . Bioluminescent lights?? Very hard to see them.
Amazing tour and guides!

Viator should explain in much more detail
Shereen_S, Mar 2021
We had a great time on the tour. Louis and Alex were excellent. The 4 hour dropoff in the middle of the day at the beach is 100% unnecessary and made for way too long of a day. Viator unfortunately dropped the ball and explained this excursion very poorly. They claim it’s 2 hours, not ELEVEN! Viator also does not give correct details of what U will actually be doing or NEED for the full day trip.. Pack towels, extra towels, snacks and water for yourself. Grab a go pro if doing the kayaking part of the trip. But the tour company was great! My 7 year old son had a blast.
A full day of fun!
Johanna_H, Mar 2021
We had a lot of fun in the rainforest, the water was so refreshing and the hike was not bad. Its a 20 min hike, very muddy! I wish we had more tome at loquillo beach, it was beautiful. I dod not see the glow in the water as I wished it was bomber for me... but the people in charge are really nice Thalia, Alex and Angel are very knowledgeable.
