Know More about this tour

Your day trip to El Yunque Rainforest starts with hotel pickup in San Juan.
When you arrive at the 28,000-acre (11,330-hectare) forest, which reaches an elevation of 3,624 feet (1,105 meters), we will begin our journey through the varied micro-climates and vegetation zones of this unique natural area. Learn about a variety of subjects, from medicinal and toxic plant identification to geology, ecology, pre-Colombian island history, native wildlife, and survival tips. The area receives more than 100 billion gallons of rainfall each year, coming in brief rainbow showers that end almost as soon as they begin.


Initial hike is for 45 minutes approximately, where you will river trek and walk by some rocky surfaces in order to get to the first natural pools and waterfall we will visit.  After spending some time here we will move to another area to enjoy more of the refreshing natural pools on a brief hike that will bring you to it's best kept secret, a 10 feet drop natural water slide.  Here you will have the opportunity to swim and even swing from a rope, like locals do.
At the end of the tour we will make a late lunch stop (food cost not included) before heading back to San Juan.

  • We had a nice hike through the forest. Waterfall was popular, even in the offseason.

  • Despite the pouring rain, it was awesome walking through the Rain Forest in Puerto Rico. It's an experience I will never forget!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • This tour was fantastic! Omar was the absolute BEST! He was incredibly knowledgable, gracious, friendly, accommodating, and fun! We had a Great time and there was SO much to see and experience. When I come back to San Juan, I will do this again and add the kayaking in the bioluminescent bay to my tour. I can't wait!!

  • Alex is an excellent guide. He is friendly, responsible and caring. He knows a lot about botanic. I am a biologist, and Alex has a great biology background. He is knowledgeable about the rain forest ecosystem, fauna and flora. Outstanding performance.

  • Alex was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable about the flora and the fauna. It is beautiful there but we went on a holiday weekend in July. It was incredibly crowded which is stressful when you are on a very small path. I wore traill shoes and brought water shoes for the waterfall swim.

  • This tour was great! A lot of walking. I had a 7 and 9 yr old with me. They loved it. Especially the water falls and the tower. The guide was excellent. Definitely recommend for families but definitely wear sneakers. Snacks and water are included. The lunch is not but big enough for kids 2 share.

  • Our tour started with a pick up at our hotel from our tour guide Norma around 10am. She was so friendly and extremely informative. We headed to the El Yunque visitor center where Norma showed us around then we drove to the hike. It was not difficult but wear sneakers because you will walk a lot and some of it uphill. Bring that camera! The best part was the waterfall...it was crowded but what an experience! Bring water shoes and be careful with the rocks. Norma brought us to Yokahu tower where we climbed to the top not very high and enjoyed the views. We then had a fantastic Puerto Rican lunch at a nice little restaurant and they even had a vegetarian option. Norma got us back to our hotel around 5:30pm. It was a long but wonderful tour and would definitely do it again.

  • This was a truly a unforgettable and amazing adventure from start to finish was incredible and well-executed and thoughtful. Everyone knows Jaime...truly everywhere we stopped people would yell out his name and come give him a hug and chat with him. I don't believe I have ever met a more down-to-earth and kind human being. He is extremely knowledgeable about anything and everything in Puerto Rico. I would highly recommend Jaime to anyone going to Puerto Rico. You are not only going to get a tour guide, but you are going to gain a true friend!
