I definitely enjoyed the hike!!! I am not an outdoors person but I had an amazing time. Everyone was nice and worked together. The only thing I would change is the items that were needed for the hike. I've never done this. I was prepared but with the wrong equipment.

Ian is the best!!! He was funny, knowledgeable, understanding (those jumps and waterfalls) and strong.. The hike was totally different than what I expected but man I had an amazing group and guide to share the experience. If you are out of shape and think you can’t do this hike it isn’t true.. I was so proud to complete it and see Puerto Rico’s beauty. I don’t want to ruin the surprises but please have cameras ready the sights are breathtaking

This was an absolutely amazing experience. Our guide, Ian, was incredible!! Literally one of the funnest experiences of my life. Dont worry about bringing anything but the essentials because whatever you bring will get completely soaked. And definitely bring a waterproof case for your phone so that you can take pictures! You will want them!!! We had such a good time with our group and guide!! Loved every minute of it!!

This hike is not for the weak. Our tour guy Ian was the best he helped out with anyone having difficulties along the way. You will be climbing over rocks and jumping into waterfalls. This was probably my favorite part of my trip to PR! You meet at a grocery store (don’t get freaked out) they guide you to a secure parking lot to begin the trail. Travel light as you can and bring a change of clothes for after you will be muddy and wet. Wear shoes with grip.

Ian was such an awesome guide, (we lucked out with a great crew too). Gave us the history, answered all my questions, went above and beyond when my friend hurt herself on a rock and even checked in hours later. He took pictures and videos for us too. The best thing we did on our trip to PR. Do not leave PR without doing this tour!! 20/10
