Great off the beaten path adventure
Sandra_A

We had a great time. Kelly and Juan were great in leading us in our journey. Kelly was absolutely amazing with our 8 year old making her feel safe and like a little leader the entire trip. She had a blast. You are most certainly “off the beaten path” In this adventure. Make sure you wear good water shoes that you can trek in ...the rocks and mud can be a bit slippery. I also recommend wearing a long sleeve water shirt as some spots with no sun can be a little chilly when wet. Great trip you won’t wanna miss.

Great trip, beautiful scenery!

Awesome trip! The hike was fun through very lush rain forest. Then checking out some caves and body rafting was nice after the hike. You can get a little banged up hitting rocks but if you’re careful to avoid them, it’s no big deal. Our guide, Kelly was nice and took a lot of pictures for us. I especially appreciated that as I didn’t want to risk ruining my iPhone taking it in the river. I’ll definitely recommend this trip to others!

A top class experience

Top notch excursion company. I received communication after booking reminding me what to wear, giving me meal options and more. The excursion itself couldn’t have gone more smoothly- pick up was convenient, the ride to the excursion site was very comfortable (we even stopped at a bakery on the way for breakfast and coffee). We were thoroughly briefed on our equipment and the history of the caves we would be seeing. The excursion itself was beautiful and our guide made sure we were prepared and safe the entire way. After an incredible day, we were taken back to our Airbnb in old San Juan. Couldn’t recommend this unique experience higher. You will remember this time for the rest of your life. Kelly and Mimi were awesome. And we love the (included in the excursion package) photos Kelly took so we didn’t need to take a camera or GoPro.

We didn’t feel like the description of this excursion was accurate. You need some hiking/mountain climbing experience. If your afraid of heights probably not for you. Nature was beautiful and tour guides were knowledgeable.

The tour was one of the most beautiful scenic tours I have ever been on. We had explored several caves above some water and saw lush greenery. The whole time I keep thinking that I am Indiana Jones. The forest was very quiet and secluded-there was no one else there. It was a hidden gem that our group had the privilege to explore. Our guide, Kelly, was very knowledgeable regarding the geography of Puerto Rico. I could tell that she is an expert and a possible scientist. I would definitely recommend this to people who want to venture out of the normal and are adventurous!

This was way better and more exciting than I thought it was going to be, you hike through the rainforest, body raft through a river and get to check out caves all while learning about nature and the history of Puerto Rico. My son and I had an amazing time and Juan our guide was very knowledgeable and extremely professional and made sure everyone was safe. We were surrounded by beautiful nature and it was an amazing adventure!
