Besides the extremely muddy trails which made it that much harder to hike, as well my war wound that I hit after fall in the mud (lol) my husband’s and my experience was absolutely amazing! I took him to PR to celebrate his bday and this was one of the activities I had booked. I had been here 12 years ago and I had a blast back then. We’ll it was certainly one for the books and He had an amazing time! Our guide Gian was also great, knowledgeable, and a lot of fun! Besides the fact that he had to race down the waterfall slide to tend to my hubby whose shoes came off in the water, it was a blast to be had!!lol GREAT TIMES!

This tour was amazing. From the pickup to the drop off - everything was very organized and we felt taken care of. The guides were very attentive and helped us through every step of the hike, making everyone feel at ease and comfortable. The hike was a little challenging but everyone in our group young and old took part. The rock formation slides and swing rope were fun as well. The lunch was okay, and I probably could have done without. Everything else was great! I would definitely do this tour again.

this tour was great!! Evelyn ,our tour guide was so informative, and really took care of everyone. Our other guide Jesus, was awesome. I cannot swim and they both put me at ease as I took the plunge down the natural water slide. I highly recommend

The experience was amazing, Bradley and Maxi were amazing guys, 100% recommended!

Excellence all the way around- knowledgeable guides who were happy to help
