Walk a trail along hardwood trees and passion fruit vines in El Yunque. Birds will be heard and soon the sound of the waterfall will fill the atmosphere completely. The early terrain is gentle and later more challenging.

DAY 01

Rainforest Hike to Waterfall

  • Get a pick-up at your location and I will provide commentary on Puerto Rico’s culture, current affairs, and our history throughout the drive.

  • Reach the location and we will continue with information on our forest and its diversity. The trail consists of an initial gentle sloping terrain (10 minutes) with another more inclined terrain (15 minutes) down to the waterfall. At the riverbed, you will find pools and a tall rock face. A truly majestic waterfall will be visible immediately as you enter the clearing from under the canopy.

  • Visit a local family restaurant for an authentic Puerto Rican lunch after this activity.  

Our itinerary runs on these approximate timings: 

  • 08:30 am - 09:00 am - Receive scheduled pick-up times.

  • 09:00 am - Depart for the journey East to El Yunque.

  • 09:45 am - Take a short restroom break. 

  • 10:00 am - Embark on the first leg of our hike.

  • Hiking starts easy and continues into a moderate setting. Although the descent could be faster, expect 30 - 45 minutes of walking for the return leg. Closed shoes are a must, absolutely no flip-flops allowed on the trail. If you go swimming, I will request you to wear a life jacket, no exemptions made.

  • El Yunque Rainforest Hiking to Waterfall with Cliff Jumping: I have scouted this special location. The place is little known to locals and you will surely enjoy the level of privacy you've come to expect from the best Airbnb experiences. You will walk a trail along hardwood trees and passion fruit vines. Birds will be heard and soon the sound of the waterfall will fill the atmosphere completely. The early terrain is gentle and later more challenging. It's an enjoyable 30 - 45 minutes off the beaten path.

  • This experience visits the rainforest where you will hike in a virgin setting. The trail leads to a waterfall with a great volume of water. You can also swim here. Similar experiences claim off the beaten path status, but I have worked for 15 years doing those locations. No one else is visiting this place.

  • Always being there for you and being personable and serviceable is what I strive for. I want to get to know every one of you and hope that we can find the links and connect us. I consider myself a multicultural-enthusiasts and I believe our humanity should allow us all to rest as pearls strung on a single necklace. Please travel Puerto Rico with me so that we may each add another page into the book of our lives. With folded hands, God bless you!
