This excursion was booked through RCCL onboard the Enchantment of the Seas out of Baltimore. We docked in San Juan and boarded a van for the 45 minute trip to the trail. We were told that, obviously, because this is a rainforest to expect an occasional rain shower and that the trail may be slick. Fortunately we saw no rain but the advise regarding the slick trail proved accurate. Our guide was very knowledgeable in explaining the flora and fauna of the region. The trail is mostly paved with grooved concrete to help keep you from slipping. As the trail seemed to never dry, the grooves did help. As for the hike, it's almost a mile to the falls and you return to your starting point using the same trail. After the exhausting hike to the falls, I was hoping once we got to the falls that we would only have a short hike using another trail to the van. No such luck. We returned the way we came in. There are lots of steep slippery hills and steps without railings and both my wife and lost our footing a number of times. Wear sneakers or boots. The cruise line describes this trip as moderate. Don't believe it. The cruise line should describe
this as strenuous, especially for us out of shape old folks. We wore our bathing suits hoping to swim at the falls, but it was so rocky there was no way we were going in. Definitely bring water shoes if you plan to swim. After a brief stay at the falls we returned to the trailhead. All in all a memorable trip that I probably wouldn't do again.
