This Hiking Tour Explores two different trails and hike through three different levels of the forest. We follow the “La Mina” river making it’s way to the falls.

Trips are subject to change
One of the things that we enjoy the most about our trips is that everyday on the water, in the rainforest or anywhere in Puerto Rico, is a different experience. According to the specific weather conditions for any given day a trip may vary slightly from our advertised offerings. On these rare occasions our tour guides will select the route that they believe will be the most fun and enjoyable for the whole group. Some days a given trip may do an additional stop beyond what is advertised, at the same time, that trip may do one less stop than what is advertised. For that reason, we encourage you to choose your trips based on the rough descriptions provided here on our website and simply trust us to provide you with a wonderful experience.
