El Yunque's hidden gems

Río Grande, Puerto Rico

Experience hosted by Shirley

5 hours
Includes drinks
Up to 3 people
Hosted in Spanish, English

What you'll do

Prepare yourselves to immerse into parts of the Rainforest that you won't see up in the touristy area! You will have the opportunity to sumerge in crystal clear waters, admire the most colorful of sceneries, enjoy beautiful waterfalls, natural springs and swimming areas. We will explore around 2 rivers and ravines that are not usually overcrowded by tourists, filled with magical spots and views where we will spend the afternoon. This experience it's full of adventure and adrenaline: We will climb some rocks, hike, get muddy feet, soak up a lot of sun, and be one with nature for a couple of hours, for which I strongly recommend having some basic hiking experience.

Remember that this experience takes place in a Rainforest, so the weather may sometimes not be on our side.

Other things to note:
Remember that having a good physical condition would be ideal.
Bring extra clothing!
Using sunblock it's highly recommended.
Boots, water shoes or hiking shoes are highly recommended also.
Make sure to bring towels!

Greetings adventurers! my name is Shirley.

Born and raised in Puerto Rico; Nature enthusiast, adventure connoisseur, & tourism graduate.

Where you'll be

We will visit a couple of rivers in the forest, not very known or frecuented by regular tourists. This part of the forest it's mostly visited by locals and explorers, since it's not in the touristy zone.

When every adventurer arrives to the meeting point, we will greet and then proceed to drive to the areas we will be exploring.

You will get to see some really great spots where there aren’t any other people. It’s like having your own waterfall and swimming pool to yourself. Highly recommend! Shirley is so nice and knowledgeable about the rainforest and the plants and animals living there. She’s also very personable and conversational. It is an easy hike to amazing spots.

Highly recommend. Shirley was great! She really knew the area and was very knowledgeable about the rainforest and other parts of PR. The hike was not too difficult. The views were amazing. I did not want the day to end.

I would rate this 10 stars if I could. Shirley really gets you involved in the magic of the rainforest. She wants you to see what most people pass on by. I love that she keeps her groups small for safety and engagement. Best part of my trip to Puerto Rico!
