Overview

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.

What To Expect

El Yunque National Forest
Your initial hike is an approximate 30-minute journey on a river wading and rock scaling path to the river. 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.

4 hours • Admission Ticket Included

Balneario Luquillo
After we conclude the tour we will stop at the Luquillo Kiosks or nearby restaurant to have an authentic Puerto Rican lunch before returning to San Juan (food cost not included).

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

The River, Just awesome. Felix “Cha Cha Chang” our tour guide was the best. This tour was so worth every penny. Don’t skip this trip while staying in Puerto Rico.
Must do

My mom and I did the El Yunque Rainforest and it was amazing and so much fun. Sliding down the rock slide and jumping off cliffs was the best part. Our tour guide Frankie was amazing and so funny we loved him. I recommend this for everyone to do. I would definitely do it again.
Fun tour through a beautiful Rainforest!

From start to finish, this tour was fantastic. Adriana, our tour guide, was charming, competent and made us all feel safe while we navigated the tricky climbs. I'd definitely recommend wearing water shoes that have a good grip.
Julian was awesome!!

Julian and the rest of the tour crew were so great. They could not have made us feel more comfortable. They were funny and informative. They made the experience exciting.
