This amazing tour starts with a relaxing drive through the picturesque area of Canovanas and Rio Grande, leading to El Yunque National Forest Park from your San Juan hotel. At El Yunque National Forest Park you will see and experience various rivers, waterfalls and walk through natural trails. This trip takes place on the heart of El Yunque rain-forest which has a path to one of the coolest spots in the park.
The initial hike/walk is a 25 to 35 minute journey up a dirt/rock path. This trail is surrounded by bamboo trees, rain-forest flowers, and many other beautiful plants. The first stop on this hike will be at a collecting pool that forms at the base of a waterfall! People usually take their time here and cool off in the refreshing waters. We will then learn more information while visiting El Portal.
After this stop (depending on the group pace this order may vary) we will take a break to have lunch (food cost not included). Before we go to our last stop,the natural water slides. This stop requires more moderate hiking over rocky uneven surfaces. After the hike, you will reach the destination at an amazing natural water slide! The water slide itself is about 20 feet long and it concludes with about a 10 foot drop into a collecting pool!
