  • This was a fun and fantastic time. Our guide Gian was awesome. Surprisingly through all the mud, hills, and narrow paths we walked; I had very little mud on me at the end of the hike. Our tour included a natural rock water slide, cliff jumping, and rope swing into the water. I would definitely do this tour again. There were multiple opportunities to take pictures it definitely pack light. I had on a waterproof fanny pack to hold my phone, a Go Pro strapped to my wrist, and a bottle of water to hydrate. The hike includes information about Puerto Rico; what was natural and what was brought to the island. We saw some beautiful flowers and a waterfall.
  • This tour is not for the faint at heart. The path to get to the water was a true challenge for me. If you are adventurous and not afraid of heights, and can live up to the challenge of hiking over rocks, through muddy slopes, across river banks this is the tour for you. The forest is beautiful and the water was amazing. It was fun to watch people jumping off the cliff into the water but it was not for me. It was a true adventure for the adventurous. For me it was an one time thing. But if you do decide to take the tour go with Bespoke Touring. Their guides are amazing and fun. They also recognized my challenges as well as a few others in our group and they were patient with us and never left our side during the challenging parts of the tour.
