This was so much fun. Be prepared to get muddy and wet. Alex was a great guide and very informative on the flora during the walk answering questions and pointing things out. The jump into the pools was so refreshing.
Your tour begins with pickup at your hotel or central San Juan location. Bring your hiking boots, comfortable clothing, a bathing suit, towel, and change of clothing.
At El Yunque, your hike—approximately 35 minutes—takes you to a secret natural pool with a waterfall. Enjoy the local flora and fauna of the area, such as rainforest flowers and Coqui tree frogs, before taking a dip in the natural pools. Dry off before continuing on a 40-minute uphill hike.
Next, visit El Portal Center to learn about the tropical rainforest, the only one in the US National Forest System.
After another short, rocky hike, finish your adventure at another secluded pool with a natural water slide and a rope that swings into the river.
After a stop for local Puerto Rican food (own expense), your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

We had EJ as our tour guide. Very friendly and helpful with the hiking tour. He made sure we were safe while participating in the activities. The hike was challenging but a great experience. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Good thing you decided to join this adventure, even if it was last minute! Life is full of surprises and sometimes the best ones are not planned with a lot of anticipation. Glad to know Lynnette went above and beyond to assist outside of office...More
