Full description

Go on an adventure to the rainforest and learn about different natural gems on this guided day trip. With courtesy transportation included, you can experience a journey of historical experiences.

Upon arriving at your destination, visit the east side of the El Yunque Rainforest to enjoy a short hike to the first waterfall. There, you can enjoy the landscape, swim in the water, rope swing, or free dive from multiple heights.

Further up the trail, there is another watering hole with a natural rock slide and cliff jump into the river. Learn about the history of the rainforest, iguanas, guava trees, bamboos, and 100-year-old trees. Marvel at nature and explore a Puerto Rican rainforest.

We had an amazing experience with our guide Gian! He was super friendly, knowledgeable and fun. Made sure everyone in our group could safely navigate the hike. The hike itself was moderate level, as advertised. The Waterslide, cliff jumps and rope swing were a blast! A great way to visit the rainforest! Stopped for lunch at the Luquillo kiosks, with awesome recommendations for authentic Puerto Rican food. Highly recommend

Without a doubt this was absolutely one of the best excursions I have ever taken in any country i have been to. The 20 minute hike to the water was VERY muddy so be prepared for that clothes-wise. Not too difficult though so just embrace the mud and you will be fine. The short hike up the boulders & hill to the natural water slide is somewhat difficult so don’t be ashamed to wait (and swim) in the bottom pool if you know your fitness level is not up for it. With that said, the natural water slide was truly exhilarating. AND THE CLIFF JUMP WAS EPIC!!! Definitely do that…don’t think when you get to the top, just jump :) Also, the 1 hour stop at the food kiosks & Monserrate beach on the way back to San Juan was the perfect way to wind down a long day. Lots of good food there and a great beach to eat it on (watch out for the birds because they will steal your food when you’re not looking!)

Our tour guide Mardier (Marti) was wonderful! He made sure that everyone is safe and having fun, explained a lot about El Yunque, and he just have a very bright personality which makes you become friends with him really fast. I had a lot of fun during this tour and I would definitely recommend! Also, I suggest everyone do not wear white shoes because you are going to have a muddy hike! (It’s a lot of fun though)
