Yamile is an experienced, genuine tour guide. Go with her and see sites you would not be able to find on your own. Yamile makes it a very safe experience.

Greatest Familia Adventure!
Daniel_R
, Jun 2022
This was easily one of the most memorable adventures my wife and I have ever experienced. From the moment we got picked up, Yamile made us feel like Familia. Super smooth and educational drive out to the first stops. Swimming through rivers and caverns is unlike anything you will ever experience. Lunch was phenomenal as well at a local BBQ spot. The final stop was a lovely hike to a beautiful hidden Blue Hole. I would HIGHLY reccomend you skip any other your on PR and make this your first booking!

Yamile was an amazing guide!! This tour is not for someone looking for an easy experience, but it was well worth it. Yamile gave us a real taste of Puerto Rico and we're planning on finding more tours with her when we come back!

Top notch excursion! Yamile is a true professional. This was a very unique experience. The area was remote and beautiful. The caves were super cool. Seeing the bats was my favorite. The trekking requires some coordination and I suggest a neoprene top if you get cold in water. Also we brought a water proof Go Pro but she provides photos/video via photo share for free. Lunch was yummy too! So glad we went!

I was really nervous to book this as I don’t consider myself it. I’m so glad I did. It was the highlight of my trip and so beautiful and so much fun. Yamille was very knowledgeable and personable. Most of the climbing and hiking wasn’t bad at all. The only hard part is the giant paved hill back to the top. I wouldn’t recommend if you struggle with balance or have little ones with you. Also get the good water hiking shoes!

I cannot speak highly enough of Yamille. The tour was absolutely fantastic & I can truly say that I have never met a more beautiful soul. From the time we got in the van, Yamille told us we were family & my mom and I truly felt as such. The caves were spectacular and the river trekking/swimming was incredibly unique. I will say that this is definitely an intense tour — you need a certain level of physical activity to participate. Be comfortable with what is at times basic rock climbing. Would highly HIGHLY recommend. This is the best guided tour I’ve been on.

Yamala is an extraordinary tour guide, and she has created a fantastic experience for her physically fit guests that like adventure. She helped us explore rivers and caves safely, and along the way gave us all training on scrambling techniques and shared with us stories of Puerto Rico culture and history. Her bright personality added worlds to the experience, and she also served as photographer & captured ample excellent photos of our exploration - what a fantastic way to spend a day! I highly recommend this tour if you are agile and like exploring new beautiful places in nature.

From start to finish, Yamille was communicative. She treated us like family and kept all of us safe during the duration of this great adventure. Listen to all that she says regarding prep prior to coming on the tour. Make sure you have good river shoes with a good bottom. Dress accordingly. From pick up to drop off just a great adventure had by all. The local stop for lunch was excellent and the small hike to a swimming hole afterwards was a good time. You can't go wrong with the cave/river tour. She brings you further where no other guides go. Thank you Yamille for a great time!

From booking through drop-off, this was the most memorable part of our trip. The owner personally greeted us and led us through preparation and registering. She was exceptionally knowledgeable about the geology, ecology, and cultural aspects throughout our excursion. She seemed personally committed to us having the best experience of what Puerto Rico had to offer. The scenery was unbelievable and the experience of a lifetime.

Yamile is the perfect guide to help you explore the scenic countryside and safely navigate multiple caves along the river. She knows the best places to float and cliff dive.

Yemila is such a beautiful spirit, and I am so grateful to had shared time with her! The adventure was great and well worth it , wanted to be done after we ate lowkey but the nature walk was also very beautiful and I’m happy I did it.. Highly recommend anything her company « Puerto Rico as a local » curates and even made new friends!

Our guide is very knowledgeable, kind, and patient. It’s a one-of-a-kind tour. There was a large storm the night before and the water was high and cloudy but we had a great time regardless. Def listen to your tour guide, wear long pants to avoid cuts and it is a high intensity hike/adventure.
