Great way to see some sights of Puerto Rico
Damon_P, Jan 2022
Was fun to visit the rainforest in an area without other people/tour groups. The stop at Luquillo beach was an added bonus!

Small waterfalls and a waterslide
BrianZuniga, Dec 2021
River tour - I guess so, but not really a rainforest experience. We went up through a residential neighborhood and parked in front of a house. We walked through the yard and went down an embankment to a small natural waterslide. We climbed the slide and went down a few times. Fun and exciting. We then climbed over some boulders, traversing another 100 meters or so down the river to a larger pool with a smaller waterfall/waterslide and a larger pool that also had a boulder to jump off of, maybe 3 meters high. We may have technically been in a rainforest, but there was no rainforest experience like hiking through the jungle and being educated on native plants and animals. The Luquillo Beach portion was a trip to some food stalls.

This tour was nothing...
Ralph_S, Dec 2021
This tour was nothing like it was described online. It was supposed to go into the rainforest and go up to the observation tower. Instead, we never actually entered El Yunque at all and spent the entire supposed rainforest portion on swimming in the river and going on the rockslide. In addition, the guide told us when we arrived there to wear closed toe shoes and socks. Only after we got onto the trail did we realize we should have instead worn our swim shoes , which were now locked up on the bus. Like many other people who were misled by him, we were slipping all over the place and experiencing much foot pain because we were walking barefoot, and our regular shoes were completely muddied up. If you just want to go down a river slide and not see the rainforest, then go on this tour. Plus half of the trip time is also spent at a very mediocre beach. Why bother with that when our hotel has a nicer beach.

Ryan was absolutely awesome! Pick up was on time and drop off a breeze. Climbing through the rainforest is an unforgettable experience. For some folks, this experience may be a bit more physical than you would think. But if you’re up to pushing yourself to do something you’ve never done, you’ll love this
Response from Host, Feb 2023

Amazing experience
Victoria_L, Mar 2021
This was certainly a trip to remember. Names I’d never forget taking a leap of faith and jumping off a 45 ft cliff. Our tour guide Ryan was absolutely fun and amazing. The trek was challenging and you definitely should be expecting some muddy or rocky terrains and some inclines and rock climbing even. But it was so exciting and it made me feel like Lara Croft in the tomb raider. There were a water slide, a 45 ft cliff jump and a rope jump from a smaller rock. The beach was mediocre and I think it was really a location for ppl to eat. But all in all it was an amazing experience and it was hard not to bind with Ryan who was so dynamic and fun. Definitely something you should do if you like adventure. Also, bring shoes that are nonslip and you do not care to throw out.
