Our company has been in business since 1992 offering guided services (private, custom, bespoke, taylor) to our clients (independent, solo
travelers, small groups, including student travel).

Depends on the time of the year and the type of activity, the size of the groups could be from 2 to 8 or 20 participants per guide depending

On your hikes to El Yunque, do you include La Barrigona, Las Pailas, and Las Tinajas?

No, we don´t.  The swimming holes or waterfalls at La Barrigona, Las Pailas, and Las Tinajas are not part of El Yunque National Forest.  
These are located close to El Yunque, but not inside; henceforth, it is not a federal property under the US Forest Service administration.  
Water falls at El Yunque will be La Coca and Juan Diego, plus swimming areas at Angelito Trail and Puente Roto.  La Mina is still closed.

In order to guarantee the date/time of the tour we recommend that you book ahead of time; otherwise, you will need to change the
date/time depending to our availability.

that the date is not available.
