“My bruises say how AWESOME my day was! My heart smiles in silence!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

I found Ricky Lopez and Montaña Explora by reading the articles on www.puertoricodaytrips.com . We decided on a 5 hour adventure (not to long, not too short) and it seemed to be the perfect amount of time. Long sleeve shirt, long pants, a good pair of sneakers & GLOVES, GLOVES, GLOVES are a MUST. You will be going by a lot of vegetation & rocks so you should protect your skin as much as possible. Dry fit clothing is recommended and jeans are the WORSE thing you can bring!

Ricky, his son Gamadiel & Joseph were our guides. They are knowledgeable not just about their craft, but also with regards to the history of the island, the vegetation & the animals. They are also all fluent in English, funny & charming, which makes for a VERY FUN TRIP!

The excursion was physically challenging if you wanted to participate in all aspects, but it is not required. One of the individuals on the group came along, but did not have to participate in the more strenuous activities. He still had a great time!

The cost is reasonable, the experience is unique and the team unparalleled. On the way out of the canyon, they ask that we help clean up this once garbage dumping site by carrying whatever we could from a small piece of metal to plastic bottles.

A perfect day with great company from beginning to end!

“It was great.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

It is a great adventure, relaxing, You disconnect yourself from the every day routines. Beautiful sceneries, walking the fields going into the woods going hiking, doing rappelling, swimming and taking pictures, river trekking. Going understand the water cascades. You won't regret it.

“Espectacular hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2010

Hiking, climbing, rafting, water falls. A wonderful experience with a professional guide. The tour begins with a historical tour of Aibonito, then we get into the wild in this espectacular forest with beautiful water falls.
