Big waterfall rappelling adventure was awesome! Andre and David are true professionals who explain the process, the risks, and risk mitigation for this adventure. The pick up in San Juan was smooth, the ride out to the interior was pleasant and informative. Made a quick stop for pastries…..you’re gonna need the extra energy and then off to the rainforest. We were fitted with our gear and given an insightful guided hike through the reserve. Different plants and flowers were pointed out and a few poetic references made along the way to the first climb. Once at the climb we went over the safety techniques and process and up we went.. Two of our group were complete beginners but with some coaching they made it and gained some confidence. The next three or four obstacles were fun and really pumped everyone up. At the high point of our climb we rigged up and one by one rappelled down the waterfalls. It’s hard to put into words the adrenaline rush you get walking off a waterfall but it is amazing and you should try it!!!!! The route back includes a few swimming spots if you’re not completely exhausted. A lunch stop on the return trip to San Juan includes epic views and some great food. If you want a thrill in PR gives Altura a call!

Andre is truly fantastic! He is passionate about the land and has created the most incredible experience. He was very clear in his directions for pick up and expectations for the day. He made each guest on the tour feel supported and included In the group. His tour was the absolute highlight of our trip!

The Big Waterfall Adventure is worth EVERY DOLLAR! I would recommend this over and over again!! I still cant stop talking about it. If you love the outdoors and seek an ultimate adventure then this is a MUST DO! Not for the week.. but you dont have to be a pro either. I have never repelled before and did great. Andre and his Team were professional and serious about the safety of everyone. I felt safe and in good hands. Hiking through the private reserve took me outside of the typical touristy thing to-do and placed me inside Puerto Rico's homeland. No words can really describe how awesome this adventure was! Also, the best part is they take pictures of you through the entire adventure, at no additional cost, and you will have tons of amazing pictures to bring back and brag on how you repelled down a roaring waterfall in a rain forest. Yup!! I did that!!

We did the Big Waterfall Rapelling Adventure and it was by far one of the coolest things I've ever gotten to experience. André, Luis and Lucas guided us through a private area of land with the most amazing waterfalls, and stunning views. The hike and rapelling all felt very safe with the gear and help that the guides provided, and our entire group had an absolute blast. If we ever come back to Puerto Rico (and we definitely want to), we're 100% doing this again!

This was an amazing trip and experience. Loved every minute of it. André is so knowledgeable and helpful, couldn’t ask for a better guide. I would definitely go back and do another tour. Walking through the forest and jumping into the watering holes from the waterfalls was the best part for me. 6/5, 11/10, 110% not enough can be said abt this experience. Except to try it yourself!
