This was my second trip with Across Caribe tour. My first was 6 years ago, and when we scheduled our trip for PR, I knew I wanted to use Across Caribe for another rainforest tour. We went to a different part of the rainforest. When we travel, we love to immerse ourselves in

Wonderful tour, wonderful guide. We were delayed in traffic arriving at the pick-up point, but were accommodated graciously when we called the office from our traffic jam. The guide kept up a non-stop description and explanation of all things relating to Puerto Rico history,

I originally booked for a Monday, and they contacted me and told me I was the only person who had booked that day, so I had to choose another day. I reshuffled my entire trip and changed other reservations so I could move this to Friday. On Friday, after waiting outside for 40

Dear guest, Thank you for expressing your frustration. We would highly appreciate if you would update your review. Since after we contacted you, we were able to accommodate you the next day and understood you had a great time. For future travellers: heavy hiking boots are not needed, closed shoes with grip is enough.
