Lismar was an excellent guide! We had such fun journeying into the rainforest to find a beautiful waterfall/swimming hole. Lismar was fun knowledgeable & really showed us an “off the beaten path” small group adventure. The rainforest did its thing & rained on us for our entire hike to the falls which created a slightly slippery descent, but Lismar showed us the exact places to step/ where to walk when the path was rough. I highly recommend hiking boots/trail sneakers (with good tread) for this! It’s not long, but pretty steep downhill over vines and slick rocks at times. The bottoms of my shoes were muddy but my feet stayed dry despite the rain! Once we got to the water the clouds cleared and we were treated to beautiful skies while we swam and jumped off rocks into the water. The lunch stop after the hike was delicious local Puerto Rican food and I highly recommend trying some of everything! Definitely recommend this tour to the adventurous type with easy/moderate trail experience.

Gian and Joel were great guides for this hike. Get muddy! Get wet! The water slide and the cliff jumping were amazing and El Yunque is gorgeous. Pack light and enjoy the journey.

Gian and Joel were the best! We had a great time with a fun group. Saw lots of the rainforest and had a fun adventure with the slide and swing. Would recommend!

It was an amazing time. If possible get Yoyo as a guide, she was energetic and amazing. Learned much of the history.

Evelyn and Noel were Fantastic! Enjoyed every bit! Thank You
