Communication was great! Easy transportation. Instructions say to wear swimsuit, but, really a pair of sport legging type shorts would be ideal. Highly recommended lightweight (dri fit) type clothing/shirt (no cotton). You will get fully submersed in the water. Wear old tennis shoes (& old socks) with good grip & plan to discard them or machine wash them due to the soupy rainforest mud. I wore a pair of closed to Keen hiking sandals w/ great grip & they were perfect! The guides were great & take pics & email them to you. You will leave everything on the bus during both excursions. Only brought a bottled water along on trail. No lunch provided, but they stop for smoothies on the way & have a great fruit spread (pineapple, papaya, mango, avocado) for a mid-day snack. Supper (you are responsible for the payment) is early (3:30/4) and was pretty good. Your guide will share a menu & get your order once you arrive to the rainforest. Rainforest portion was amazing! Kayaking was just ok. Enjoy
Highly recommend this excellent experience. We had Luis, Jami, and Maxine leading us through the El Yunque trail hike and water activities: 2 natural water slides, cliff jump, and rope swing/water drop. This was followed by some relaxing free time around the water with fresh local fruits to snack on. This was followed by dinner near the biobay. The biobay tour was great, led by different guides that did a good job. The total kayak tour across the bay, through the mangroves (you'll want mosquito repellent), and into the biobay was about 2.5 miles round trip. Getting to see the bioluminescence made it all worth it. The tour did not do pickups where we were staying in Tio Grande but they were great in coordinating a pickup spot very close to where we were staying. Big props to Erica for her quick communications through email and to Jami for her amazing and skilled driving on the El Yunque roads! Would do this tour again in a heartbeat!
The rainforest tour was amazing! Don't be afraid to jump off the rocks into the water or off the rope swing. It's not as high as it appears lol. Be ready to get dirty, full of mud. It's worth it.
Jennifer, Robert and Joalex were absolutely amazing! They had a great sense of humor, adventure and extremely kind. I HIGHLY recommend them to everyone.
Es excelente y lo recomiendo con los ojos cerrados, las personas que atienden son sumamente amables y profesionales
