Full description
Start your day by meeting your guide at the local fruit stand “Frutera Flores” in the town of Luquillo. Here, your guide will pick up a variety of fresh local fruit for the tour, and you have the opportunity to purchase some local fritters and/or a fresh fruit smoothie. After this stop, follow your guide in your rental car to the majestic El Yunque Rainforest- without a doubt Puerto Rico’s greatest Natural Wonder. It is the only tropical rainforest, the most biologically diverse, and the most studied forest in the US National Forest System. After an interpretive hike through natural trails lined with beautiful flora and fauna, and some river wading, arrive at a hidden gem found in the heart of the rainforest. This breathtaking segment of the 29,000-acre forest is like a natural playground. Here, have the chance to swim in the natural pools, refresh in waterfalls, slide down an exhilarating waterslide, rope swing into the river, jump from different rock formations, and enjoy fresh local fruit with a view. Along with all of this excitement, you will also have time to simply relax to the sounds of cascading waters and take in the beauty of this very special place.

This adventure was amazing, very well put together. Have the opportunity to drive yourself to the location was a great way to explore the island and learn about PR. The Forest tour is great for people willing to walk a little and love water. I would do it again most definitely!!!!

So.much.fun. Our guide Luis was amazing and his sidekick . This is not a hike for the faint at heart. I would not recommend it for young children or persons with troubles balancing. It's quite adventurous. The rainforest itself is beautiful. The trail is moderately challenging as its sometimes uneven and it's muddy and slippery. There is climbing involved. Wear shoes with good grip but can get wet as you'll also be wading through knee-deep water. The best part is the natural waterslide and the cliff jumping...like I said adventurous. I'm healthy & in decent shape and I was EXHAUSTED after this hike. But I loved every minute of it. I would definitely do it again.
