What people are saying about San Juan, Puerto Rico

Our guide Nani was wicked! Understood our needs and took it slow till we got the hang of it! Cool trails - it was fun to go after some rain cause the puddles are huge! We got attacked with mosquitoes unfortunately so wish we were told how bad they would be to better prepare! All in all a great experience

We had such a great time with Elizabeth our guide! She was so informative about all the sea life and structures that were there. Anytime we needed anything or wanted pictures, she was on it! We got to see 5 turtles (including a baby!) on this excursion!

My family and I really enjoyed this activity. José was an awesome guide through the trails. It was such a beautiful property we will definitely be back

Loved my tour! My guide was very informative and learned a lot about Puerto Rican culture.
