    El Yunque Rain Forest
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    After arriving to Ceiba, your initial hike will start off as pure adventure. You will cross a river (sometimes water can reach close to waist height), and an approximate 30-minute journey on a dirt/rock path, and possibly muddy terrain. This trail is surrounded by bamboo trees, rain-forest flowers, and many other beautiful plants. First visit a river and collecting pool that forms at the base of a waterfall. Take the time here and cool off in the refreshing waters or even swing from a rope. We will then proceed to do another hike and rock climb in order to visit more hidden natural pools (more strenuous part). Here you will also have the opportunity to cliff jump into the natural pools, or go down the natural water slide. We will then return hiking thru the same path we arrived. After the tour ends we will stop at a local restaurant for a late lunch (food cost not included), before returning to San Juan or your initial meeting point. This stop tends to take 1 to 1.5 hours.

Solo female traveler who had the best time. Staff was awesome, guides were super fun, they encourage you to let loose, but also know when to stress safety. It's physical, but not too challenging (you gotta be reasonably fit and willing to climb). Plus you get to slide down

My experience might be different because it started to rain a lot during our excursion which required the leaders to change plans. Considering this, we still did get what was promised. But I did not expect the challenge level involved. No one was compelled to do anything,
