What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup at your hotel or central San Juan location. Bring shoes with great grip, comfortable clothing, a bathing suit, towel, and change of clothing.

Jonathan and his friend were the best tour guides! I’m sorry, I’m bad with names and cannot remember. This experience was so much more fun than I thought it would be and glad I did it. It is definitely a work out but being able to jump into the water made it so much worth it.
