It was my first time and sooooo much fun. The guides were a bit fast though. After I got more comfortable I was able to keep up with no problem. I caught some pretty big waves so keep that in mind (however they were fun to me). I’d definitely do it again. Don’t forget sunscreen and I’d suggest something to cover your face/eyes. That was my mistake.

The hike required a lot of physical demand but our tour guides were very interactive and helped the group a long the way. Claire and Bryan were very informative and attentive and made sure everyone was okay. Make sure to bring sneakers and light clothing that you don’t mind getting muddy

Had a great experience on the jet ski tour. It was my wife and my first time on a jet ski, and they did an excellent job slowly introducing us to the jet ski. We did end up going out to the ocean, which was so much fun!

Beautiful experience. I can only say thank you to the staff. Worth everything to us, you attention to my little one (youngest at the ride) but to all of us was simply amazing. Highly recommended

This was my favorite activity I did in Puerto Rico, the tour guides were super hands on and helpful not to mention super hott I highly recommend taking this tour with Brian …..10 stars
