Frankie and Puerto Rican Tarzan were very carefully with my young 3 kids. We had a group of 7 and everyone enjoyed. He gave us lots of P.R history. I even over came my fear when it came to jumping of the cliff. Would definitely recommend this experience to anyone even couples with young kids.

Great guides, so helpful and patient! I don’t know how to swim but still wanted to partake in all the water fun. They ensured my safety getting out of the water. This was worth every penny.

We had a great time on this trip!! There is tons of climbing rocks and treading through water. We had 4 ppl ages 40-50 and all were able to do it. Definitely wear closed toe shoes with good traction. The guides were awesome! Super friendly and helpful. I HIGHLY recommend this day out. This was one of our best experiences in PR! Super fun!

I am a 72 year old man and my friend is 77. When I was booking i was told there would be half hour hike. In realty the hike was a strenuous and very technical hike, climbing up and down steep paths over rocks and tree roots. All of this in torrential rain. The other tour customers were all in their 20's and enjoyed the trip. My friend and I sat it out on the porch of a local. On the plus side, the guide, Jacob, was amazingly knowledgeable in many subjects from geology to politics. And we enjoyed seeing the countryside.

The tour guide Joe was AMAZING. He was very personable and very helpful. Still no response on how to get photos that were taken during my tour. Overall a good experience, would do it again.
