What you'll do

Activity begins with your San Juan hotel or meeting location pick up.

Once we arrive to the skirts of El Yunque Rainforest we will start with a 25-30 minute journey on a river wading and rock scaling path to the river. Here you will see bamboo trees, rain-forest flowers, and many other beautiful plants and experience various rivers, waterfalls and walk through natural trails. We will make a stop to visit a collecting pool that forms at the base of a small waterfall. This portion of the adventure finishes in a pool area, its best kept secret. After a few minutes of hiking, arrive at a natural river where you can swim, swing from a rope to the river, and enjoy the natural water slides.

After the hike, we will stop for lunch at a local restaurant (lunch cost not included) before heading back to San Juan.

This is a super fun and adventurous tour, and Frankie was an amazing, informative, and energetic guide! It's important to note that you will get completely wet, sliding down natural water slides into pools of water, and so you should bring a waterproof bag if you want to bring your phone with you. Frankie and his colleagues also took photos and videos which they sent to us at the end. Also, there were several other tours in the area so it was not exactly "off the beaten track," but overall we had a really great experience and highly recommend this tour!

Our tour with Jaimé was amazing!! Nothing like we’ve ever done before. All of the tour guides were very sweet and helpful. The hike was a little more challenging than what was advertised…if you are looking for something relaxing this may not be ideal tour for you-it requires quite an amount of effort. But if you’re looking to get out of your comfort zone and experience something exhilarating, book this tour!! Thank you Jaimé and and team!!

Jaime was an excellent guide! He made our tour family feel safe and well taken care off. Jaime is also so funny and kind! The experience was beyond amazing and possibly the best part of our trip to PR. I never imagined myself trekking through a rainforest and going down natural waterslides but Jaime and his team made it possible. It was beyond amazing and I recommend it 100%!!!

This is an incredible adventure and a must do if you are visiting San Juan. I personally packed everything under the sun thinking I would need it. All you will need are water shoes and a towel for after you venture. You are provided a life vest and hard hat. You are asked to leave all of your items on the bus. Trust me if it can’t get wet do not bring it. Make sure you have a water proof pouch for your camera or phone. Bring with you a sense of adventure because this excursion is incredible

My daughters LOVED this tour and talked all day about it. However, the description does not really describe the level of fitness needed for this tour and my husband was unable to actually do the tour.
