Javier nailed it with this tour, at each fork in the road began a new conversation on a new type of trail. This tour gives the opportunity to tailor the journey, and let's everyone stay active. Javier can match your pace or race your kids to the top. This was a great family trip!

Excellent trip. Charles had an incredible knowledge of not only El Yunque but also PR as a whole. The drive into the rainforest was anything but boring — Charles filled the drive with lots of interesting facts and pointed out the different towns and the history of the land.

On this trip you drive into the rainforest, stop at the observation tower, go on a hike, and stop by a river, with Charles actively giving facts along the way. It’s the perfect balance of activity and relaxation. The tours where you go straight to the water holes were not as appealing to us. You get the best of El Yunque on this tour!

I had a good time. What really made the trip were the other folks in my group. Charles was kind and knowledgeable about PR and the tour clearly he had done it before. I do recommend wearing old shoes because they do get a bit muddy. Something I didn’t anticipate was the drive up if you’re like me and easily car sick can rattle you a bit. I recommend dreamamine to help.
The road up and down the forest is very curvy and that didn’t sit well with me.
Only thing I would have liked were maybe some snacks and water bottles in the van. It was an awful long time to not have that option. We did stop in the morning at the a bakery but I would’ve loved to have a snack or water provided because it got tough at one point and it is very active. If not bring your own an because you’ll definitely need it. Otherwise Charles was timely, the group was welcoming, and they made me feel like part of the group even as a solo traveler.

Be prepared to spend a lot of time driving around to pick up other travelers. Once in the rainforest there are three stops to see a river, climb a tower and see a waterfall. While the guide shared some information, she did not share much information about the rainforest itself (flora, fauna, etc) and was not very energetic.

I would like to thank for being our guest and taking the time to share your observations. Since you were the first pick up, we had to make 4 more stops for our other Clients. We apologize for not meeting your expectations, we work hard to make every guest experience a memorable one but did not succeed this time.

Our tour was delayed due to the earthquake, but when we went the next day it became all the more meaningful. We had a wonderful guide who gave a lot of information along with spicing in a nice stream of jokes along the way. She was very accommodating to the pace of the group and made this a pleasant way to spend 5 hours or so.

Our tour guide was amazing. He was so knowledgeable and very kind. We stopped at some wonderful view points and took great pictures that will last a lifetime. This tour did include a hike that was listed as moderate. My mother(early 80s) and I(hip issues) opted not do this part of of tour. While our group was on the hike, we visited the gift shop and walked around some of the area until our group returned from the hike.

The guide was just lovely and very knowledgeable and very passionate about her land. That was very appreciative. But, the trip itself was not notable. We stopped at a little town and went inside a room with lots of pictures with history. But, we just did not get to walk very far into the forest due to the hurricane 2 years ago. She has tried to accommodate as best as possible. Good for a family. Very short hike. The trails are closed.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts regarding your recent Rainforest Tour. The Tour you choose does not include a Trail walk.We offer 2 options, one for a 1/2 day and the other a 3/4 day with nature walk and swim at the River. Thank you for praising our Guide.

The tour claims to be 5 hours, but we didn't leave until 10 and got back at 1. This included about 30 minutes to stop for lunch (not provided). Only reason to not give 1 star was because our tour guide was amazing and the van was in good condition. Definitely not worth anywhere near 50 or 60 bucks. Wish we could get at least half our money back.

I don't know why you wrote that the Tour started at 10 am. Our 1/2 day Rainforest leaves San Juan at 8:30 am and that is when the Tour starts. If you joined the Tour at the Rainforest, then yes it starts later. But we advise everybody that does not want to come to San Juan , that they will miss part of the Tour. So, you have the option to cancel or come to San Juan. That is up to the Client. It clearly starts on the Web Site that our Tours are from San Juan. I am sorry you feel that you didn't get the full Tour, but that was u to you to make that decision.

Great chance to see the rain forest with minimum walking. To my untrained eyes, the rain forest looked restored from the hurricane two years ago, although our guide, Carlos, did point out some damage. We saw a river, a waterfall, and climbed an observation tower. Carlos was very informative telling us about the history of PR and the rain forest. What is the number 1 industry in PR? You will have to take this tour to find out!

The tour stopped at a makeshift information center (the one in the park was damaged in the hurricane two years ago and hasn't yet reopened), a tower, a waterfall and a river. That was it. The driver and guide was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable - we had a great conversation with him and he returned to our hotel with a jacket one of us left in his van. However, what was included in the tour was not very impressive.

I am so sorry we disappointed you, but the stops we do on this Tour are exactly the description we advertise. Maybe you should have chosen our Nature walk Tour which is a 3/4 day, not just a 1/2 day.I am happy to hear that our Guide was very knowledgeable and helpful
