Wow! The views, the people and the experience and all top notch! I will say, where something with a little padding, it can be a little rough on the butt! It was a super awesome experience and I would totally do it again!

Body rafting
Julia
, Aug 2021
The last part in the water when we do a tandem and we go faster. The day was good but it's not extrem and we wait the people after us.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Dear Julia. I am so glad that you joined us for the body rafting experience in our natural reserve, where our guests enjoy a spectacular scenery without beeing in a hurry. It's pure, it's peaceful. That is precisely what we hear from our guests: that this is what they enjoy the most, specially in the hard times that we are living: extreme times. Yes, you are correct, some people are very athletic, some are not. Some just like to take it easy and go at a slower pace... to just laugh and love every step along this marvelous heaven. You may had to wait a few more minutes while they took their time. I apologize...and I thank you for taking some of your time to share your comments. I always learn a lot from my guests. I hope that you liked the photos we sent you. I saw them. They were unforgettably beautiful. We wish you health and happiness. Kindly, Team Explora

Unique outing
Anonymous

We had an excellent guide (Callie), and she was very patient with kids and adults alike! The scenery was gorgeous, and I love adventure, so this fit the bill! I would caution the hike down and up were treacherous and not for those who are cardio-challenged. My only disappointment was that the river was very shallow right now, so there were a lot of rocks to contend with while rafting, and less than clear water for visibility. If I went again, I’d go when the river was deeper. Really unique experience, and PR is so wild and beautiful!

The Best Rain Forest Experience
Victor
, Nov 2020
This was one of the best adventures I’ve traveled around the world and every if not most have been so guided that the next step was predated. This was raw and if you want to experience the rain forest, do this one, it will be your best experience. Let’s talk about the guide, she was Amazing!! She took care of us and she also was a history teacher to the ones who didn’t know this history of PR. Thank you so much for this amazing adventure and photos! I will do this again on my next trip back. Victor Enriquez from California!

Great off the beaten path adventure

We had a great time. Kelly and Juan were great in leading us in our journey. Kelly was absolutely amazing with our 8 year old making her feel safe and like a little leader the entire trip. She had a blast. You are most certainly “off the beaten path” In this adventure. Make sure you wear good water shoes that you can trek in ...the rocks and mud can be a bit slippery. I also recommend wearing a long sleeve water shirt as some spots with no sun can be a little chilly when wet. Great trip you won’t wanna miss.

Awesome trip! The hike was fun through very lush rain forest. Then checking out some caves and body rafting was nice after the hike. You can get a little banged up hitting rocks but if you’re careful to avoid them, it’s no big deal. Our guide, Kelly was nice and took a lot of pictures for us. I especially appreciated that as I didn’t want to risk ruining my iPhone taking it in the river. I’ll definitely recommend this trip to others!

A top class experience
Noelle_S

Top notch excursion company. I received communication after booking reminding me what to wear, giving me meal options and more. The excursion itself couldn’t have gone more smoothly- pick up was convenient, the ride to the excursion site was very comfortable (we even stopped at a bakery on the way for breakfast and coffee). We were thoroughly briefed on our equipment and the history of the caves we would be seeing. The excursion itself was beautiful and our guide made sure we were prepared and safe the entire way. After an incredible day, we were taken back to our Airbnb in old San Juan. Couldn’t recommend this unique experience higher. You will remember this time for the rest of your life. Kelly and Mimi were awesome. And we love the (included in the excursion package) photos Kelly took so we didn’t need to take a camera or GoPro.

We didn’t feel like the description of this excursion was accurate. You need some hiking/mountain climbing experience. If your afraid of heights probably not for you. Nature was beautiful and tour guides were knowledgeable.
