Felix, Christian and Tarzan did a wonderful job on this adventure! It was a great experience, and I ended up conquering my fears. The guys were very information and helpful during the hike which made it “easier” to complete! I would recommend these 3 men at any point for any tour!! The hike was challenging but I made it through with their help!

I only wish it was a little longer because the forest was beautiful but other than that it was super fun! The food stop after was delicious! You get great authentic Puertorican food at a great price.

This was definitely the highlight of our trip. The tour guides know the rainforest in and out and help you every step of the way. Not only were they informative and physically helpful, they were extremely friendly and entertaining. They took over 500 photos of the group so there was no need to bring your phone. Definitely wear sneakers or hiking shoes you don’t mind getting wet. The lunch stop was delicious (definitely get the chicken and a fresh smoothie). Would definitely do this tour again and hope for James, JC, and Mitchell as our tour guides!

Intense tour but it was so much fun!!

So I'll just start by saying I didn't really know what I was getting myself into, this tour is not for people who can't hike, it's not for people who can't be active for over 2 hours and it's also not for people who are deathly scared of heights. That being said I had the time of my life. Climbing rocks, wading through water and jumping off an amazingly beautiful waterfall. Like I said it's intense but well worth the experience. You don't necessarily need to know how to swim but let your tour guide know if you don't know how. Tennis shoes with good grip are better than water shoes, but be advised your shoes will get soaked. Also bring a fanny pack, something you don't have to carry. It would also be helpful to bring those waterproof sleeves for your phone if you wish to take your own pictures. Carlos and Johnathon were excellent hosts! Very authentic and knowledgeable. They take pictures for you, free of charge if you'd like to leave your phone behind on the bus. They did a great job at helping us all through the forest and giving us tips, and fun facts along the way. Would definitely recommend to a friend. Excellent experience.

I loved the energy, Frankie and his team were the best and explained many interesting things. They took great pictures and videos of us, and took us to this delicious local Frutera where they sell fresh fruits that you can buy & make smoothies, they also have empanadas and other local Puerto Rican street food. It was unforgettable
