Join a passionate, certified guide on this day hike to the highest point in El Yunque National Forest in Puerto Rico.
A visit to El Yunque tropical rainforest should definitely be on your list of things to do in Puerto Rico. Though it’s relatively small, by no means is it lacking the amazing biodiversity that you’d expect from a rainforest.
There are more than a dozen species of endemic Coquí frogs, known for their loud mating call, as well as many species of lizards and birds. The vegetation in the forest varies and can be divided into four different areas; on El Toro Trail, you’ll get to explore three different kinds of forest.
El Toro trail is special because, unlike the forest’s well-maintained trails which tend to draw crowds, it has a nice remote feel. It leads you to the highest peak in the forest, where you’ll enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding foliage, the coast, and several nearby towns.
The hike is a total of 4.5 miles, to the peak and back, and generally takes 4-5 hours. The last part before reaching Toro Peak is steep, so be prepared to exert yourself. There are also parts of the trail that can get very muddy, so be careful and dress accordingly.
Come explore this lush rainforest and be amazed by the views from its highest point.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
