Everything was very efficient. From pick up to drop off it was a great ride. The driver was informative of the island. Rafael was a great guide and the captain and his first mate were so fun ! We danced and drank local beer. They also had individually packed sandwiches, chips & fruit. We got so much information about the Island and got to enjoy its culture first hand. We will definitely be back !

Nice and professional service. The tourist guide very educational and smart. We enjoyed the River and hiking in the mountains. Todo estuvo puntual, agradable y excelente servicio. El guía turístico muy conocedor de los secretos del Yunque. Disfrutamos mucho nadar en el rio y las cascadas. La historia ancestral contada a través del guía sencillamente fantástico

Very good experience. Beautiful scenery. I don’t agree with them keeping the activity while it is pouring rain. They do not reschedule if it is thundering and raining. You must pay a $25 rebooking fee. The rain feels like needles, even the drizzle. Wear long sleeves and pants if it is raining.

Wonderful experience! My best yet! The crew was awesome and worked well together. The island beach was fantastic and it really was a beautiful adventure! Thank You
