Our guides were Paula and Imodi. They were so fun to spend the day with. Our group of 9 ranged in age from 25 to 66. We all knew what we were getting into. This is challenging and definitely muddy. They advised us to wear old shoes and embrace the mud, which we did. Some of us opted not to do the cliff jumps and rope swings. Others went for it with gusto! 9 thumbs up!

Armondo and Patricia was the best tour guides ever!!!!!! If I could give them a 10 I would! Had a one in a life time experience and I was one of our favorite things we did in Puerto Rico! They even gave us tips on things to do after the rainforest tour!

Great experience Not difficult to complete

Great tour ! simple and easy walk thru the rain forest towards the waterfall. I would recommend bring “disposable” or old shoes, because they are likely to very dirty with mud difficult to clean. otherwise very nice experience by jumping into the water and go thru the natural slide. when going towards the rally point use Waze as a map for directions, other maps are unlikely to work and not giving accurate descriptions.

Very neat experience, learned a lot.

Very neat experience, learned a lot. This is a fairly physically demanding tour/experience, so just keep that in mind. I really enjoyed it and it pushed me out of my comfort zone to see things I wouldn't normally see or do. The tour guides Max (female) and I am so sorry I forget the other one but they were terrific and made your felt comfortable with everything. It is a rather busy area that you go to, so the only downfall is it doesn't feel like you're in a "secluded" rain forest or anything, but it was still neat. I think maybe a full day would take you deeper into the rain forest, so since this is just a half day it is very surface level, but was worth it.

My son loved jumping into the pools - he leapt off that rock like 8 or 9 times! Maxine and Amowry were fun and knowledgeable and great guides. And thanks to Maxine, we caught a coqui frog tonight!

It’s not every day you step into a rainforest without a passport. Lots of beautiful plants and waterfalls. Cliff jumping and rope swinging into the river was fun! Do yourself a favor and stop by Walmart or Walgreens and be prepared to ruin cheap shoes!

Disappointed

My third time visiting El Yunque and this tour was not worth it. Overcrowded, no time to enjoy the surroundings, and such a small portion of the rainforest. Not suitable for 8 year olds.

So-so experience with not enough focus on showcasing the unique rain forest ecosystem
Mauricio_B
, Apr 2022
Logistics were fine. Fresh fruit salad at the river was a nice touch. Focused too much time on the rope swing and rock slide (both of which were fun) and not enough on describing and showcasing the flora and fauna of the rain forest - missed opportunity by the 'guides' to provide more information about the unique attributes of El Yunque's diverse ecosystem. Three days after the excursion, we're still waiting for the photos that one of the guides took with their camera (we were discouraged from bringing our own camera so, at the moment, we don't have a single photo of the experience); hope to receive the photos soon!

We had an amazing experience. Our guides Natalia and Patricia were awesome and made sure that they were with us every step of the way. The half day was more than enough for our family. I would not recommend this for kids under 12 years old. Wear sneakers or boots!
