Full description

Go on an adventure to the rainforest and learn about different natural gems on this guided day trip. With courtesy transportation included, you can experience a journey of historical experiences.

Upon arriving at your destination, visit the east side of the El Yunque Rainforest to enjoy a short hike to the first waterfall. There, you can enjoy the landscape, swim in the water, rope swing, or free dive from multiple heights.

Further up the trail, there is another watering hole with a natural rock slide and cliff jump into the river. Learn about the history of the rainforest, iguanas, guava trees, bamboos, and 100-year-old trees. Marvel at nature and explore a Puerto Rican rainforest.

End your trip by having lunch at a local small family-owned restaurant that serves authentic grandma-style food for an additional cost. On this tour, you can enjoy a unique local experience with our team of local guides.

Both guides (Brian and Sebastian) are very helpful and nice. The trip has a perfect balance of everything: not too tiring, not too boring, not too educational and not too intense. Trips were exactly like what is described, and so much fun. There was an 8-yo girl in the group and even she could finish all water tasks - good for family. Good value of money overall!

What an incredible experience!! Easily our favorite part of the trip. Bryan and Patricia made everything so easy, fun, and safe! We were picked up at a meeting point and drove as a group in a van to the forest. Patricia and Bryan were always keeping an eye on all of us making sure that we weren’t having too many difficulties during the hike and giving their hand when needed. The water slide, rope jump, and cliff jumping were amazing experiences and I always felt safe! Totally worth the money! Do not hesitate to book! I will definitely be booking again with them when I return :)

Amazing hike, views and water features on our trek through El Yunque. So glad we booked this experience! Our guide Marlon was the best of the best; shared important history of the island, the rainforest, the wildlife and nature that lives there, and on top of that Marlon was hilarious and kind. We wrapped up the tour by stopping at a local eatery with some of the best food we’ve had on our trip. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking to explore El Yunque!
