Once we arrive to the Forest grounds we will have a 30-minute hike that includes river wading and a rock scaling path to the river. This is a completely off the beaten path trip that will take you into the lush vegetation where you will be surrounded by bamboo trees, rain-forest flowers, and many other plants. Your guide will assist along the way while sharing interesting facts about this entire eco system, help you spot the native flora and fauna and answer all your questions.

First stop, a collecting pool that forms at the base of a small waterfall. Here you will have the opportunity to swim on it’s crystal clear waters. A glimpse at the first waterfall, great for pictures opportunities!

We will proceed to a more advanced hike with rock climbing to the next set of natural pools along the river. Here you can swing from a rope to the river, cliff jump, and enjoy the natural water slides. This is the highlight of the trip that cannot be missed!

Yunque Forest Tour Guide
JemExplorer20_22, 13-05-2022
Our tour guide Luis, was so pleasant, funny and knowledgeable about the Island and the Yunque Rain Forest. He made our drive so much more enjoyable that we lost track of the travel time. He is a great asset to the Tourism Industry.
Do it! It's worth it.

We were so happy to get this tour, as it was last minute and all were sold out. Our tour guides were very entertaining and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the hike through the Yunque forest, climbing rocks and jumping into the river. Just be warned that your shoes will get muddy!
Wonderful and...

Wonderful and conscientious guides led our family up into El Yunque. Loved the natural water slides, and the rope swing into clear deep pools
Best part of our trip

This was my favorite part of our trip. Our guides treated us like family, they were very informative, made sure we were safe, and also made sure we had a good time. We went through 2 rock water slides, jumped off a 15ish foot cliff, and jumped off a rope swing. Really appreciated the transportation as well.
10/10 Highly recommend!

Everything was perfect and such a highlight. We are avid hikers and we were worried that a big group would slow us down or take away from the experience. On the contrary- there were plenty of guides so the fast people could go fast and the people who wanted to take their time had someone with them too. We used our time efficiently and the guides worry about the safety so we didn't have to. Pro tip is really need stable water shoes (think like keens) not crocs or sandals. Also bring one of those around the neck protectors for your phone if you want to bring it - otherwise the guides take photos and send to you later. They want to keep you safe by having hands/back free at all times. My daughter has an epipen that they carried for me in their dry bag.
