Javier as knowledgeable and very personable. Also very flexible when our cruise schedule changed at the last minute. He was very sensitive to what we wanted to do during our visit and he made sure it happened. We had a great time, and he was a great hiking companion! Good conversation as well! My wife and I would both HIGHLY recommend Javier.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Reuben. It was a big pleasure to spend time with Sharon and you. Next time we'll go for a longer hike. Javier

A thoroughly enjoyable day with no rush to get through. Javier's pointing out highlights as well as smaller things made the tour much more satisfying than merely walking through on our own. His enthusiasm for the day was greatly appreciated.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was great visiting the rain forest with you. We saw areas that most people never get to see. Hope to see you again. J.

Our trip to El Yunque did not disappoint! We had an absolutely remarkable day! Javier is very easy-going with a deep passion for his work and a sincere love for his country. It was wonderful to spend the day with him exploring the magnificent wonder of the rainforest. At the end of the day we felt like we were leaving a dear friend behind. We are very thankful and grateful for the experience!

Javier was an amazing guide.He made the hike to the top of the tower informative and fun. His passion for nature is evident; we learned so much. I recommend Javier if you are interested in this tour.

The El Yunque tour by Javier will be remembered by our family for years. Javier is very knowledgeable, cares very much about making sure everyone gains a deeper understanding of the rainforest, and that everyone enjoys the experience. Very reliable, clean transportation, and very professional tour. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see El Yunque.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Steeve. Say hi to your kids.

This hike is exceptional! Javier and his driver met us promptly at our hotel in a big, clean van. They both are very knowledgeable about rainforest and PR, and tailored the hike to our needs. The hike is quite easy, but Javier added a challenge for two of us on a very rocky hike up to some private waterfalls, which were spectacular, while the other two stayed with driver in the van's AC. A roadside smoothie/taco stand on return was the perfect finish to our request for "local" food. This is a must do!

My family and I had an excellent time with our guide Javier and his driver Hector. They promptly picked us up drove us about an hour to the El Yunque rain forest. During the drive they were a wealth of information about San Juan, Puerto Rico, politics affecting the island, the current debt debacle etc. At the rainforest Javier knew so much about the place, the vegetation,birds, etc. we took a great hike, took a dip in a waterfall and ate an authentic PR luncheon. We highly recommend Javier
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I loved talking to you, and spending time with your kids.

Dibbie M.United States
Our family had a fabulous guided tour of El Yunque with Javier R. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a private tour of the rain forest. Go early to beat the crowds and leave the driving to someone that knows the way. We made it all the way to the top!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Dibbie. I had a great time with you and your family (twice). :-)
Tom ReadUnited States
We would have never made it to the top without Javier! Got to see and swim in a beautiful waterfall as well. Highly recommend him as a tour guide! Easy going, genteel and was great with our teenagers. Muchisimas gracias por todo Javier!
