Marvel at magnificent views of the mountains and coastal plains. Come across lagoons and curious limestone rock formations. Keep a lookout for the native wildlife roaming freely in their natural habitats. Learn the history and importance of the Puerto Rico Paso Fino horses. Then, go to the hilltop Mojito Bar and cool down with some refreshing drinks of your c...

    This was a one of a kind experience but I will say the weight limit is strictly enforced, they would not allow my friend to ride and she was only 6 lbs over the limit. Other than that I enjoyed the trail and ride, I’d also advise to wear sunscreen and I got my very first sunburn! Lol

    Had a lovely time. We ended up being the only ones on the tour, so we got to spend a little more time doing exactly what we wanted but our guide was very charming, funny, and just nice. Would absolutely recommend. The grounds and wild life should not be missed. :)

If your spending a few days in Puerto Rico, this tour is a must have experience. My wife and I were hesitant at first to book this due to the large time commitment, but it was definitely the highlight of our first visit to PR. Ali and Yohanna are experts in their craft. The ride from the meeting point was about 1 hour to the rainforest entrance, and the hike up to the pools, cliff jumping, and rope swinging, was a good half hour, so be ready for it. Its not easy, you will get dirty, but its all worth it in the end. After a couple hours of hiking and water activities, we were taken to Loquillo beach another 2 hours for drinks, lunch, and swimming/ snorkeling on an awesome reef, with so much underwater life to explore. We could have spent all day with our group, but time ran out at 2 and from there we headed back to the meeting point. at the end of the trip you should be exhausted, so plan for an easy evening after this trip. Id do it all over again in a heartbeat if I get the chance!

My tour guides, the Papi Chulo group is by far the best tour group I've ever had. They made sure my family and I were safe at all times. They also helped us take the best family photos. Papi Chulo #1 dived into the waters and served as a lifeguard. He also saved my daughter's glasses that fell deep into the water. Thanks again! Papi Chulo #2 spoke about all the facts on the rain forest including the plants, flowers, animals and waterfalls. My family had a fantastic time. Sincerely, Pineda Family
