We absolutely loved our time with Marlene and Alexis. They were genuinely excited to show us parts of the rainforest that they also loved and made the rainforest come to life with the fauna and birds. They personalized the tour to what we wanted to see and do. We felt so comfortable letting them navigate back roads and trails to great sights. They were also super helpful suggesting other things for us to do on our trip! If you’re doing a rainforest day, this is the excursion you need to book!!

Marlene and Alexis were absolutely amazing! I booked this as a single traveler and I was kind of nervous about feeling alone and shy, but Marlene, Alexis, and the other travelers i was with were really welcoming! Marlene and Alexis were so knowledgeable about the area and the animals and plants within it. It was so gorgeous and amazing. It was intimate and really well organized. 10/10 recommend anyone who wants to explore El Yunque to do this excursion.

Don’t think, just book. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience. I do recommend bringing a poncho for sure as well as good hiking shoes with traction. I learned this the hard way and am currently icing my ankle for a tumble I took during the hike however, Alexis and Marlene were prepared with antiseptic and bandaids as well as CBD salve to help with the pain which was much appreciated!!!! The views are just breathtaking and Marlene and Alexis really know their stuff when it comes to any questions you may have. Such a wonderful day with them, even with a swollen ankle. 10/10 would recommend.

I really like challenging hikes and asked Marlene and Alexis if we could do something advanced. Marlene happily suggested a route and I have to say it was truly a challenging hike and a very interesting experience! Both Marlene and Alexis were friendly, laidback, easy to talk to, and knowledgeable (I asked a lot of questions about the island). We had great engaging conversations, and I felt like I was spending time with friends. I highly recommend booking this or any other experience with Marlene and Alexis, they'll make it absolutely exceptional!

Marlene and Alexis gifted us a wonderful day in El Yunque. They are both knowledgeable, friendly, passionate about what they do and very responsible. Much better way of doing El Yunque (compared to going solo) as this is stress free and also a learning experience and an opportunity to get local insight and tips for other locations in Puerto Rico!
