What people are saying about Eastern Region, Puerto Rico

We loved this catamaran excursion! Unfortunately the weather wasn’t quite what we hoped for, but the staff still made the day so much fun. Drinks were great and the staff always made sure you had a full glass! The lunch was also very tasty. I would definitely recommend this trip to anything traveling to Puerto Rico!

Joe and Solimar were wonderful guides! Had a blast snorkeling, drinking, eating and enjoying the beautiful water. Would recommend 10/10 and most likely be back with more friends that haven’t tried it before!

It was beautiful, the hike was pretty easy. Our guides were kind and helpful. The girls made us a beautiful snack of fresh fruit.

Great tour. The guides were very helpful and informative on the science behind the bio bay.

Ask for the “Double A”’ tour guides. They were the best!
