My friends and I had an incredible time hiking through the rainforest and swimming to the waterfall. There was cliff jumping and rope swinging from the rocks too. Our awesome guide, Manuel, prepared delicious fresh fruit and then after leaving the rainforest, we stopped by for some yummy local eats! I HIGHLY recommend this tour and Across Caribe!!

We booked the day (9-5ish) tour and our tour guide was Fico. We were picked up exactly when we were told, from our lodging in Miramar, and Fico was friendly and personable right away. The trip included a stop at a fruit/vegetable stand, a hike through the forest to a swimming hole, and we got to swing into the swimming hole with a rope. After the hike, we were brought to have local cuisine, which was also fantastic. Everything about the tour was great, and the experience is unforgettable.

It was an amazing experience. Our guide FICO was an amazing person : very helpful/ respectful, knowledgeable which made the whole experience even more enjoyable. He cut the fruit for us with so much love and expertise that we did not enjoy eating fruit so much ever. He made the whole experience really unforgettable. I was so happy to see that there are still good and wonderful persons existing in the world . The beauty of the place of course was wonderful but his love for the entire group made it even more enjoyable. GOOD JOB FICO : KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK !!!

Manuel was a great guide! We got picked up at our hotel, then about an hour's drive to El Yunque for a rainforest tour. We stopped and got fresh fruit, then off we went on our hike.

A couple of things... you WILL get wet. You WILL get muddy. Do NOT wear jeans and water shoes are a MUST!

This was a great family adventure. After traversing a stream, we climbed about 50 feet almost upward on wet stones and tree roots, this is not for those who are physically challenged, but Manuel was great! Providing great steps as to how to move about and making sure everyone was safe and had a good time.

Once we reached the pool and waterfall, he cut up the fruit we bought earlier for snacks
And it was delicious. All in all a great day.

We booked an Afro Percussion Drum Workshop with them and came from the south of the island for it. They sent a cancelation email 4h prior the event, while we were already on the road. Spent a lot of time in San Juan's traffic jams just to find no one there and no one was answering the phone either.

Our sincere apologies for this terrible inconvenience! The teacher let us know that he became unavailable and therefor we had to cancel, we could not arrange anything else within this short timeframe.
A situation like this did not happen ever before and we feel bad for our guests that came from the South Side to attend this class. We did try to reach out to our guests but were not able to reach them unfortunately. In july and august we have limit hours, knowing from 8:30-12:30pm to be reachable. We hope that for our guests and us as a company, which highly values customer service and being reliable, this won't happen again.
