Louie has a deep knowledge of every single tree, plant, flower and animal in Puerto Rico. He shared a tremendous amount of insight into the rain forest itself, Puerto Rico's history, and geopolitics. He made the history and background come alive with stories. His style is friendly, easygoing, and he did not rush any of us. The rainforest itself is... More

What a great experience! From the moment she picked us up till she dropped us off at the hotel. Lismar was so informative about every single thing, so fun to be around and adjusting to all ages and expectations! Wish she could show us around all of Puerto Rico!

Louie was great from the start! Very easy to communicate with when booking the tour and delivered a great value. He picked us up first thing in the morning and was very prompt about making sure everyone was in the van on time so we could make the most of our day. During the drive, he gave a great history...

Our guide was Lismar - she was great! Very professional and friendly - our group got a lot more than just a ride to her "office" (aka the rainforest); she provided insight into the history, culture and flora/fauna of the region and we all enjoyed some really good local food after the hike to La Minas waterfall. I would highly... More

We had Lismar as our guide. She was great. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the rainforest and Puerto Rico. We saw more than the tours operated by the cruise ships. The trail to the waterfall is a little steep/narrow and sometimes slippery but I had no problem negotiating the hike. Seeing the waterfall was well worth it. I forgot bug... More

Louie is a lively character with plenty of passion for Puerto Rico. His tour was fun and informative. He dropped us off at the start of the trail, explained the route we should take and then met us at the other end of the trail (so we didn't have to walk back the same way to get back to the... More

One of the things I really wanted to do while on the island was to visit El Yunque. I called ahead and made arrangements with Louie for a Sunday rainforest tour, which was very easy. Louie fetched me from Plaza Colón (a short walk from my hotel The CasaBlanca, which was on the *very busy* Calle Fortaleza) and off we... More

Lismar was AMAZING - we experienced such a fun and informative tour! The path of the tour was perfect - started out at the visitor's center, went to the falls then observation tower, and hiked the forest to the waterfall. The path is really good - we didn't do any back-tracking because Lismar went and moved the van while we... More

We had a fantastic day with Lismar at the El Yunque Rain Forest. From the minute she picked us up, she was outgoing, cheerful, and informative, telling us about Puerto Rico and about El Yunque. She seemed to know everyone we met on the way, and really helped us understand what we were seeing, hearing, and smelling in the Rain... More

I called a day before booking. Louie was conducting a tour when I called and requested a text and he would confirm that afternoon. It was very simple and by the afternoon Louie had confirmed that me and my daughter would be picked up at 8:15am from our resort. The next morning our tour guide Lismar picked us up right... More
