I had so much fun and our guide was awesome. He made sure safety was the number 1 priority and constantly kept an eye on the group to make sure no one was falling behind. We got stuck in the mud at one point and he pushed all of us out. The Atv’s went 10-15 mph which felt fast enough to be fun particular with a muddy course with a bunch of turns and bumps we could run over.

Wet and muddy but great fun for 3 teens and their parents. The hike is not far but to maneuver the trail is no joke: slippery rock climbing in places. Andres and Adriana were excellent, helpful, and fun. Would absolutely do this again and recommend it for all who are physically able!

Absolutely incredible experience! Marlo was our tour guide and he completed the whole experience with his vibrancy, knowledge, and incredible personality! One of the best experiences we had in Puerto Rico! Thank you Marlo!

My wife and I had a good time on this tour. We enjoyed the natural waterslide and rope jumps. Andrea and Andres were great tour guides.

It was beautiful and the tour guides were nice and friendly. My family had a blast
