Take time to escape from the city and dare yourself to explore other less known areas of El Yunque Rainforest. Hike in an off beaten path trail, river trek, rock climb, learn and spot it's flora and fauna, and enjoy its gorgeous waterfalls, natural pools and waterslides. Along with your knowledgeable certified tour guide you will be immersed in a wild secluded paradise, and fully infused with the vibrating energy of El Yunque's rivers and fresh clean air, just like the indigenous Taino Indians did centuries ago.
Please make sure to read all details and additional information before booking. This tour is a moderate to strenuous activity and may not be suitable for everybody. For a lighter version please look for our El Yunque National Half Day tour.

This area is surrounded by bamboo trees, rain-forest flowers, and many other beautiful plants. Your guide will take the time to share interesting facts about this entire eco system, help you spot the native flora and fauna and answer all your questions.
We will make a stop to visit 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, and enjoy the different tones of its deep pools. A glimpse at the first waterfall, great for pictures opportunities!
The adventure finishes in a pool area, its best kept secret. After a few minutes of hiking and rock climbing (more advanced), arrive at a natural river where you can swim, swing from a rope to the river, cliff jump, and enjoy the natural water slides.
