We met Javier- "El Cabra Montes" at 10:00, and we hiked to three peaks. Feet and legs are tired, but what a day! Be prepared to go beyond the tourist spots. Remember to bring water and snacks, because if El Cabra Montes is your guide it will be a hike. Great operation.

I booked a hike for my family in El Yunque. John did a great job of gathering info via email on skill levels and what it was we wanted out of the hike (my kids were hoping for a Waterfall swim and I wanted to learn about the rainforest). He was extremely knowledgeable, was able to keep my kids engaged... More

Thanks John for sharing your knowledge and a great place to hike! It was an experience we will never forget. John took us to a bakery where we had a delicious breakfast. Then We took a 3 hour hike. It was breathtaking.

Our hike was almost 5 hours and took us through various parts of... More

John customized the tours to fit our needs, what we were able to do, and what we wanted to see. John is extremely knowledgable and told us a wealth of... More

John Druitt, the Rubio in Rubio's Tours, runs a first rate tour guide business. His knowledge of the El Yunque rain forest is extensive and his general knowledge of environmental science is astounding. The combination of the two, coupled with his dry British wit, results in an experience you are not likely to ever forget. John will completely customize your... More

This was such a fantastic tour. John was involved in a reforestation effort so is really knowledgeable about the rainforest. Although we got rained on the forest we still had a great 1.5 mile hike along a paved walkway. John provided plenty of water and info. We highly recommend this tour.

It really does rain, and is quite... More
