Iván and Jo Jo were both incredible tour guides. The hike was wonderful. Ivan was full of information and passion about El Yunque. The rainforest was beautiful, rope jumps were fun, I was disappointed we didn’t get to go to the water slide but we had more time in the natural pool and Jo Jo brought samples of local fruit and that was delicious. We drive out to Luquillo beach afterward and that was a nice bonus :)

It was beautiful, the hike was pretty easy. Our guides were kind and helpful. The girls made us a beautiful snack of fresh fruit.

Brian and Enrique are excellent guides; who will show the travelers how to traverse the rainforest safely.

It was great. And the guides helped us going through the waterslides and climbing up

I def enjoyed it even though I fell twice.. But, is no ones fault..
