Absolutely amazing!! It was so cool to see the rainforest at night!! We even took a swim! The trail was very doable (I was 21 weeks pregnant) The tour guide was VERY knowledgeable. They literally provide everything for you which was very convenient. We even got to try some fruit! Definitely recommend!

A beautiful glimpse of the rainforest with an informative guide in an air conditioned bus. We got gout several times to explored the waterfalls, over looks, and angel pond. Many excellent photo opportunities.

Long time cruiser. Many times to San Juan, but had never done rain forest (now a rain jungle due to prior hurricanes). Glad I waited. This is, by far, one of the best, off a ship tour I've done in the Caribbean. Angel with El Yunqye Tours was awesome. From the moment they picked us up, to 6 hours later, back @ RCCL Allure, he was engaging, informative, and professional. Seems dedicated to the cultural and botanical culture of the Island. Everything was taken care of for us. Stopped for coffee and restroom break before heading into forest. Even had a van,& crew at point we hiked down to the river for a swim, with daypack, umbrella, food, and towel (and Porta Potties!!). The small umbrella was great under the canopy, both for the sun and a nice rain shower as we walked back from the river. Book with the ship, or @ elyyunquetorus.com if on island. Don't imagine a better group out there. Perfect day, but you must be able to hike and moderate exertion in the forest, book wisely, not for toddlers or elderly.

Booked this trip through Royal Caribbean on a stop in San Juan. The rainforest is about a 45 minute drive (they take a pitstop at a Wendy's for food and restroom break). Once there, it's about a 1 mile walk/hike downhill along a trail. An easy walk. Our guide Angel and the tour owner Mike offered great insight about the rainforest and the creatures and plants who call it home. Plus they pointed out the tremendous damage from the recent Hurricane, but showed how nature was already starting to regenerate. At the end of the trail, there is a natural pool where you can take a refreshing swim. The water was cool and clear, and perfect after the hike. The only bad thing about a 1 mile downhill hike, is that it was that same 1 mile hike UPhill to get back to the trailhead. So you need to be prepared. On the way back, the sunlight gave way to evening, and we could hear the forest come alive. Tiny tree frogs make a deafening noise, and the guides would point the little guys out as we passed them along the way. If you want to experience a rainforest in its natural state, I highly recommend this excursion. One of the best I have ever taken, and well worth the money.
