Muddy adventure with my boys 15 and 20
Susan_W, Mar 2023
Our hides really helped us stay safe. Listen to their advice. There are many slippery areas on trail and in water. Wear good shoes. At 52 yo I felt nervous but it’s all doable. A fantastic adventure !!!

The guides and the adventure makes this trip an excellent time. Do not attempt to make this if you are not physically able to climb rough terrain over rocks and trees.
Jason was our guide and...

Unforgettable experience
Johana_W, Mar 2023
Absolutely incredible experience. Our tour guide Julian was great and very knowledgeable! Definitely recommend!!
Great hiking experience
Barbara_T, Feb 2023
This was a great experience/day trip in Puerto Rico. It was so helpful that the tour picked us up from our hotel and took care of everything from water to photography. The guides were friendly, helpful and made sure we were safe. The hike itself was a just right challenge for us ( mom and two kids- 13 and 17)including hiking, rock climbing and water activities. The rainforest was beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed.
Okay Excursion
Jeff_J, Feb 2023
I’d call this one just okay. 90 minutes in a van each way, a 20 minute hike thru the jungle on an extremely muddy trail then three water activities that you can do in less than an hour (you can do them as many times as you want though). It was good to get off the ship and do something but we wouldn’t do it again.
Awesome Hike!
Teeaira_S, Jan 2023
Ariana and Luis were the perfect guides! Enjoy a very scenic, fun, and muddy hike through the El Yunque rain forest! It was so fun and we ended at the Fresh Water Spring and then later finished at a chain of good restaurants and shops. I would definitely do this again.
Alexis_S, Jan 2023
Interacción with wild’s memorable experience, our tour guide was amazing, thanks. I want to come back for more.
Great adventure!
Kate_W, Jan 2023
Julian was a fantastic guide. He was very knowledgeable and took great care of us. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning to this beautiful rainforest.
Not for senior citizens
Haresh_M, Jan 2023
My problem with Viator who sold us this tour in spite of knowing that we are senior citizens. We had to quit after a short distance as the terrain is too difficult for older people. Our experience with Bespoke was ok- no complaints re transport, tour guide etc.would certainly rec Bespoke tours to friends.
Highly Recommend
Judd_N, Dec 2022
Our guide George was amazing, and attentive to everyone in our group. The waterfall and slide were probably the most memorable part of the experience! Highly recommend!
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thank you Judd!
Embrace the mud...It's so fun.
Catherine_H, Dec 2022
The pick-up/drop-off was easy and timely from Condado. George and Jason were a great duo: driver, guide and Mitchell too (lifeguard). We had 12 on a Sunday tour in early December. Bespoke took care to give us a safe adventure.
Amazing Adventure
Adriana_F, Sep 2022
This was an AMAZING adventure!!! We loved our guides Adriana & Luis!! They were extremely nice, I felt safe throughout with their instructions and they were genuinely amazing people. I loved hearing all of the history of the rainforest and had an amazing time I would highly recommend !!
More a walk than a hike but a great experience!
DonnaMarie_H, Aug 2022
Julian was great and very informative. Very well organised - although the 7:30am trip didn’t start at 7:30 it started at 9:10 which was fine for us but not sure how this would impact other plans you had in the day :) with this being said they got us back at 6pm. As avid hikers this was more of a walk than a hike and was not difficult at all! Would recommend and the river is cold which is great when travelling in August where the temp is extremely high!
Awesome Rainforest Adventure!
Vasili_M, Aug 2022
This trip was amazing! Our tour guide Felix and his crew were fantastic and welcoming. They always kept us entertained and provided knowledge of the island and the rainforest. We had many laughs and smiling moments from the pick up and drop off at the hotel. We were prepared for the activities and felt safe. The experience through the rainforest was awesome! I would come back and do it again!
Great experience!
Jen_H, Aug 2022
It was such a unique and beautiful experience! The tour guides were amazing as well! I’d definitely recommend to anyone!
Great experience at El Yunque
Ana_M, Aug 2022
This tour of El Yunque was amazing!! If you like rock climbing, swimming, and hiking I would definitely recommend this tour for you. The tour guides were very knowledgeable about the area and were careful to make sure everyone was safe during the activities. My favorite part was going down the natural water slides.
What an amazing...
Ryan_H, Aug 2022
What an amazing experience in the forest! To begin with the communication was on point, they were very punctual and they gave instructions before we went into the actual hike/water activities. Felix and his coworker were just amazing. They were so courteous and recommended a couple spots as well for lunch on the way back. Overall the hike was moderate, wouldn’t recommend if you are not athletic. We went with someone who didn’t know how to swim and even she had a blast because she was safe. They had a lifeguard with them to make sure she felt comfortable. Just amazing! Will be coming back next time I visit.
Experience of a lifetime.
Geoffey_G, May 2022
Amazing trip. Julian was the best tour guide. Fun informative. Made us all feel comfortable. And made us all laugh. Experience of a lifetime going down a natural waterslide. The hike was so worth it all. And a great work out
The natural water slides...
Katie_D, Apr 2022
The natural water slides were a definite highlight and the entire tour was very well done! Would recommend this to anyone who likes an adventure
