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.

We had a great time on our Rainforest tour. Mara, Adriel and crew were excellent at teaching about all of the flora and fauna of the rainforest. Walking back at night was fantastic. We enjoyed spotting wildlife and experiencing the peace of the darkness and the sounds of the night. This team did a great job with an easy hike that almost anyone can handle.

We visited with a large family party June 2022. There was only one other couple (besides our famiky) on our trip. Manuel led the walk, and it is obvious how much he loves Puerto Rico and its biodiversity. Someone please fund this young man’s research! We have a LOT of nature lovers and some very knowledgeable people in our group, and Manuel impressed us. Mara and Nelson were with him, they were kind and attentive and helped locate coquis and wildlife. Is this a walk you can do yourself and swim in the pool at the bottom? Yes. Would you get as much out of it without the guides and experiencing it at night? Not a chance. Highly recommend. If you are in PR long enough I would explore more of El Yunque, but this walk was so informative and entertaining.

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.

Mara and Jorge showed care for the forest and for us. It was a wonderful experience all around for a group of 6 with three young kids. We did the night hike and saw many animals. It’s a short hike down to the water and the water is an amazing place to swim it’s less a hike and more a guided tour at a leisurely pace. We learned so much and saw so many cool creatures. Would recommend wearing your swim trunks and have an amazing time!

Unique experience exploring rainforest at night. Tour is well planned, everyone gets a backpack with towel and torchlight. You can choose to swim in the natural water pool. On the way back, it is dark and you have chance to see coqui and other interesting creatures.

We booked this tour as a shore excursion while on a cruise with Royal Caribbean in July 2018. According to their staff, it was only the 4th time post Maria that they restarted the tours. We had a great time and what we saw of the rainforest was just beautiful so I can only imagine what it looked like pre Maria. The only trail open was Trail Angelito's and the hike was very do-able. There are plenty of photo ops along the way and their guides assisted with this. After hiking the trail, we stopped in a water hole called "Punto Roto" which apparently means "Broken Bridge" as the water hole in next to a bridge. The water was crystal clear. We had several tour guides but Dan was great with a lot of rainforest facts and Puerto Rico in general. I would love to do this tour again when more trails are open and the forest has an opportunity to regrow. Of note, they give a snack and water for the tour but beware if any of you/family members have a nut allergy like my son does. The snack is granola bars and almond bars.

We booked the nighttime rainforest tour from our cruise ship in January 2016. Total disappointment. We departed around 2:00 and our guide (John?) put my kid to sleep on the bus ride with his "informational" speech which was at times incoherent and jumped around with no rhyme or reason. We were expecting a hike as advertised, but it was a very easy, very short walk to a natural river swimming hole. We saw no wildlife on the short walk and the water was freezing. Following a brief swim, we waited, and waited, and waited some more for dusk to finally arrive. When it did, we were given lights that we had to be very careful to keep on the "red" setting so as not to disturb the forest. That would have been fine, but the lights also had white and flashing white settings, and people inadvertently switched among the three. On the walk back, we were to shine our lights on trees to look for frogs. Found a bunch but no other wildlife was visible, nor could we hear unusual sounds of the forest as promised. Saw half a dozen very minor instances of bioluminescence, but after the first couple it became very boring. Could not get back to the ship soon enough. Even my nature-loving kid declared this to be the most disappointing excursion she had ever been on. I had to agree.

This is a U.S. Park Service run park. The rangers and staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. The park is very large with many things to enjoy. The walk to the waterfall is probably three miles round trip--one path called "short" and the other longer. Both are very steep, narrow paths down that can tax the knees and other joints, but the surroundings are spectacular. The short route is less taxing. You may have a chance to see tropical birds or hear frogs. The falls are beautiful, but the area is usually very crowded. There are two ways back from the falls--the way you came or the other path. Both are very taxing so consider your state of health.

I like the whole natural experience of the talks. You could smell, hear, and touch the rainforest. It was very natural to me. Mike, our tour guide knew what he was doing and he was very informative. I would definitely recommend this to anyone going.
