Here are some reviews for Diana:
Highlight of trip so far
Diana was an enthusiastic and attentive tour guide and we had a lovely time hiking and swimming in El Yunque National Park. Ask her to take you to the kiosks at the beach for delicious empanadas and a magnificent view after you are done hiking.
Fun tour of El Yunque in October ’22
Our driver/tour guide Diana communicated with us before the pick-up, was on time, was so friendly and warm as we drove to get the other guests. She made the drive to El Yunque informative and fun and was able to answer almost every question we had. If she didn’t know, she apologized and then found the answer later (do snails lay eggs? What is the latitude of PR?).
The park is still recovering from storm damage so some of the hikes we would have done were not available. We climbed a tower and swam in Río Mameyes, in addition to some other good spots she took us to. Diana regularly offered us cold water and gave us disposable washcloths to clean our hands before lunch. She drove us to a roadside food stand that had plenty of local options and we all enjoyed a nice lunch.
