What people are saying about Eastern Region, Puerto Rico

The pick up was on time. The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. We loved Felix and Elias. The always had us laughing. It was wonderful to see a different part of Puerto Rico by going to the rainforest and river. Loved the slide and cliff jumping but also just relaxing in the river.

We had Frankie as our tour guide and he was EXCEPTIONAL! He was fun, and had great energy and very knowledgeable about the rainforest. He treated everyone as family and it made our tour that much better. You are lucky if you can get him to do any of your tours un Puerto Rico.

Thanks to the concerted effort from Julie in the office, Frankie, Louis and Mitchell during the hike, and additional effort of several other individuals, we were able to enjoy the hike, as well as to catch our flight on time (after the hike)!

Felix and Christian were awesome tour guides and the experience itself was so much fun

Primera vez que visito El Yunque! Una experiencia inolvidable! Me encanto todo !
