A beautiful glimpse of the rainforest with an informative guide in an air conditioned bus. We got gout several times to explored the waterfalls, over looks, and angel pond. Many excellent photo opportunities.

Long time cruiser. Many times to San Juan, but had never done rain forest (now a rain jungle due to prior hurricanes). Glad I waited. This is, by far, one of the best, off a ship tour I've done in the Caribbean. Angel with El Yunqye Tours was awesome. From the moment they picked us up, to 6 hours later, back @ RCCL Allure, he was engaging, informative, and professional. Seems dedicated to the cultural and botanical culture of the Island. Everything was taken care of for us. Stopped for coffee and restroom break before heading into forest. Even had a van,& crew at point we hiked down to the river for a swim, with daypack, umbrella, food, and towel (and Porta Potties!!). The small umbrella was great under the canopy, both for the sun and a nice rain shower as we walked back from the river. Book with the ship, or @ elyyunquetorus.com if on island. Don't imagine a better group out there. Perfect day, but you must be able to hike and moderate exertion in the forest, book wisely, not for toddlers or elderly.…

Review of: Twilight Rainforest Nature Walk
Booked this trip through Royal Caribbean on a stop in San Juan. The rainforest is about a 45 minute drive (they take a pitstop at a Wendy's for food and restroom break). Once there, it's about a 1 mile walk/hike downhill along a trail. An easy walk. Our guide Angel and the tour owner Mike offered great insight about the rainforest and the creatures and plants who call it home. Plus they pointed out the tremendous damage from the recent Hurricane, but showed how nature was already starting to regenerate. At the end of the trail, there is a natural pool where you can take a refreshing swim. The water was cool and clear, and perfect after the hike. The only bad thing about a 1 mile downhill hike, is that it was that same 1 mile hike UPhill to get back to the trailhead. So you need to be prepared. On the way back, the sunlight gave way to evening, and we could hear the forest come alive. Tiny tree frogs make a deafening noise, and the guides would point the little guys out as we passed them along the way. If you want to experience a rainforest in its natural state, I highly recommend this excursion. One of the best I have ever taken, and well worth the money.…

Our guide, Michael was incredibly knowledgeable about the rain forest. So glad we had the opportunity to explore El Yunque with him and his team!

We took this as an excursion from Royal Carribbean and it was wonderful from the start. Angel was a very engaging tour guide who provided great information. It shows he really cared about Puerto Rico. Mike was top notch and his company's service was excellent. They provided everything - backpacks, umbrella's, towels, snacks, water, bug repellent EVEN the photos were free. Normally other tours try to nickel and dime these things out of you, but they did not. I saw other tour groups with us and there was a stark difference. they had very shady tour guides that were just loud and obnoxious. While ours were very professional and engaging. In fact the other company crowded the parking lot in one of our stops with their buses that they would've delayed us had it not been for Michelle's adept driving and the tour guides professionalism in maneuvering out of a potentially heated situation. We would've loved to have had more time at the River as it was so peaceful and refreshing. Because we were at altitude and also lots of running water from the rivers there were not bugs or mosquitos.…
