Convenient pick-up from one of the listed locations. The ride and tour was engaging and fun with Charles. We enjoyed all the stops as well as the hike. Please bring your own water and snacks. Highly recommend visiting the rainforest!
We had an amazing experience!

As a group, we decided to do this excursion last minute. We booked it less than 24 hours in advance. We were assigned to Charles R., he was an amazing guide, knowledgeable, attentive, friendly, and patient with everyone in the group- 10/10. We were picked up on time, transportation was comfortable, and the views from El Yunke breathtaking.
Worth it!

Our tour guide was amazing. He was so knowledgeable and very kind. We stopped at some wonderful view points and took great pictures that will last a lifetime. This tour did include a hike that was listed as moderate. My mother(early 80s) and I(hip issues) opted not do this part of of tour. While our group was on the hike, we visited the gift shop and walked around some of the area until our group returned from the hike.
A Balanced, Knowledge-filled Tour

Excellent trip. Charles had an incredible knowledge of not only El Yunque but also PR as a whole. The drive into the rainforest was anything but boring — Charles filled the drive with lots of interesting facts and pointed out the different towns and the history of the land.

On this trip you drive into the rainforest, stop at the observation tower, go on a hike, and stop by a river, with Charles actively giving facts along the way. It’s the perfect balance of activity and relaxation. The tours where you go straight to the water holes were not as appealing to us. You get the best of El Yunque on this tour!
Great Tour!
