Louie knows everything there is to know about the rainforest, and his tours are fun, informative and safe, not to mention cheaper than some of the more commercial options out there. Highly recommended if seeing El Yunque is on your list for a trip to...More

Louie has a Web site and a Facebook page. TripAdvisor won't let us post links, but the URL is LouieVIPTours. On Facebook, look for LouiesVipTours. (Sorry I just saw your question -- hope this is helpful!)

Not on our tour. We did not retrace our steps. When we were at the waterfall our guide went back and moved the van to meet us on a shorter uphill walk with steps. We did not swim at the waterfall but most of our group did.
