  • An amazing tour. The best way to see the park before the crowds arrive. Great lunch spot courtesy of the guides too. Truly excellent. Thanks

  • We had a great time exploring the rainforest. My daughters especially enjoyed swimming in the pool below Mina falls.
    Alex, our tour guide was very patient and helpful. He had a lot of knowledge about the flora and fauna so we learned a lot.
    The early access made all of the difference because we had the falls all to ourselves for most of the time we were there.

  • well we didnt get to go early, be sure to give them cell phone numbers cause they do stay in contact with you. our guide was absolutely wonderful!!! he was fun and knew alot about everything!!! very worth it!!

  • The trip was wonderful and arriving early made all the difference. The two guides were excellent, friendly and very helpful. They took the extra effort to take us all to a local restaurant in San Juan when the tour was over. I can't recommend it more highly. Thanks for a great day.

  • Nice.

  • El Yunque was beautiful, and being there before the bulk of the tourists was fantastic! The hike to the waterfalls was almost completely empty!

  • Excellent Tour. Our guide Luis Pantoja arrived right on schedule at 6:30 a.m. for hotel pick-up, bringing us to the park gates as the rangers opened the road to the park before the public opening a couple hours later. We had a leisurely walk thru the park on the trails by ourselves Luis brings you to the top, and waits at the bottom so take all the time you want within the trail and waterfall, and had a wonderful time at the waterfall before the tour buses arrived. Luis gave us interesting info. on the local history and plant life, and never rushed us. I highly recommend this tour. As we were leaving the park, the many tour buses had begun their arrival for the day.

  • The only way to see the Rainforest! Luis was a wonderful guide and provided so much information. We were able to take our time and explore at our own pace. During our hour or so of exploring we only encountered about 10 other people.
