What people are saying about Eastern Region, Puerto Rico

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!

I enjoyed the total experience of this tour even if the corals aren’t that amazing as compared to my other snorkeling experiences. But the tour isn’t just snorkeling.. there’s party while we are sailing, great foods, drinks and music, I love the floating mat and the views.

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!

Excellent tour of the rain forest! The guides were very knowledgeable about the history, traditions, and culture of Puerto Rico. Be sure to bring old shoes - they will get muddy.

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.
