This was the highlight of our trip to PR. The guides were very warm and friendly and are full of good information about the first and OR in general. There are many picturesque stops, the waterfall and cliff jumps were amazing. The guides Lismar and her husband were very helpful and patient with our kids and even coached them through jumping off the cliff when they were scared. Not least the food stops were incredible, more authentic than you get in the tourist locations and delicious. Highly recommend!

Lismar was an excellent guide! We had such fun journeying into the rainforest to find a beautiful waterfall/swimming hole. Lismar was fun knowledgeable & really showed us an “off the beaten path” small group adventure. The rainforest did its thing & rained on us for our entire hike to the falls which created a slightly slippery descent, but Lismar showed us the exact places to step/ where to walk when the path was rough. I highly recommend hiking boots/trail sneakers (with good tread) for this! It’s not long, but pretty steep downhill over vines and slick rocks at times. The bottoms of my shoes were muddy but my feet stayed dry despite the rain! Once we got to the water the clouds cleared and we were treated to beautiful skies while we swam and jumped off rocks into the water. The lunch stop after the hike was delicious local Puerto Rican food and I highly recommend trying some of everything! Definitely recommend this tour to the adventurous type with easy/moderate trail experience.

Awesome excursion into a beautiful rainforest, with cliff diving and swimming at the bottom of a waterfall. 1/2 hour hike in, on newly cut trails, after an hour drive from the city into the El Yunque Rain Forest, with bespoke stops along the way. Host (and his co-host daughter) are the genuine article, with insightful knowledge of the island, the Forest, it’s flora and fauna, and the complex and proudly vibrant people of the stunning island they call home. Could not recommend this experience enough. Seamless booking and travel logistics, reliable communications with the host/guide and very modestly priced.
