    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

    The hiking trip to the waterfall/river was so much fun and the tour guides were awesome. Very involved and made sure everyone was enjoying themselves. Breathtaking views and the water felt amazing cause it was so hot!! Bio Bay Kayaking was an absolute waste of time and money. For starters, the water smelled like we were kayaking in a cess pool. The water was black and smelled like rotten eggs. Didn't seem very sanitary or safe for anyone to be in. Then we were lined up in our kayaks and covered with a tarp full of sand in order to see the plankton light up (which they didn't) they clearly stated this wasn't guaranteed but according to other reviews it seems like it doesn't happen any time of the year. So we literally just got covered in sand from head to toe for no reason. I really do not recommend this activity to anyone.

  • San Juan: El Yunque Rainforest and Bio Bay Combo Tour

    6. San Juan: El Yunque Rainforest and Bio Bay Combo Tour

Enjoy the beautiful views along the scenic route through the Northside of the island and learn some facts about the areas from your guide. Make a stop in the town of Luquillo and enjoy some fresh local fruits before continuing the journey to Puerto Rico's majestic Rainforest.

It is the most biologically diverse forest, hosting hundreds of plants and animals - some of which are only found here in Puerto Rico. Once there, hike through natural trails lined with beautiful flora and fauna, and some river wading, until you'll arrive at a hidden gem located in the heart of the rainforest. Enjoy the b...

    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

Leo, Mariana and victor were amazing. Very passionate, patient and professional. Muchas gracias!!!! El rain forest is just a beauty, but if you don't like hiking this is not for you and if you go, please take your trash with you and be respectful with mother Earth, Puerto Rico has a little piece of heaven in the rain forest.

This tour was so much fun! I loved that it was a small group, and our guide was really helpful and personable. Definitely recommend bringing two bathing suits if you can swing it, as there are plenty of opportunities to change. Loved it!

Very friendly tour guides! The tour was great. Expectations met!

It was great ! Need to be prepared for a lot of climbing!

All I have to say this experience was off the hook
