Let me add to the previous reviewers offering the highest marks for Guillermo's paddle board tours. The man is a real pro, fun and friendly. Let me try hitting a point or two not covered by others.

I was uncertain whether his $75 fee was too high. It is not. Here's why: if you are a first timer, you'll find his instructions helpful. My group saw others on the lagoon, probably first timers too, who likely rented boards from a nearby vendor for $25 or $30 per hour. They were struggling mightily, fighting in the wrong parts of the water and paddling without form. That won't happen with Guillermo.

He has a terrific, laid back yet fully involved styled. If you are looking for a few hours of sun-soaked athletic activity on the water -- where you will also receive a friendly lesson in ecology -- Guillermo's tours are for you.

Btw ... I enjoyed it so much I felt he deserved a tip ... and I only tip when it is earned and deserved.

Lastly, make your reservation in advance. I suspect his paddle board tours will be growing even more popular soon.

Looking back on our trip to PR, this was my most FAVORITE excursion that we booked by far! We booked our tour with Guillermo based on the reviews we saw on Trip Advisor and he did not disappoint! He kept in constant contact with us, informing us about the weather and the wind and then offered to pick us up at our hotel so that saved us the cab fare. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about PR and filled us full of information! We were lucky enough to have a manatee join us in the bay we were in and he swam around us for most of our tour! It was amazing! We were just blown away seeing it in real life! We also got to see a manaray swim by us and got to hold a big star fish. It was incredible! We took a water break on the beach and then he let us continue on for as long as we wanted. The photographs he took for us were a bonus so that we didn't have to worry about bringing our cameras. He then joined us out for dinner the next evening at Carli's! What a great guy! Highly recommend this tour!

All of the reviews are true! Guillermo is as good as they say, and may I say, better!! This was my husband's and my first time paddleboarding and we had no trouble at all thanks to the detailed instruction, relaxed attitude and experience of our guide. We had an amazing time paddling on the Lagoon and sharing a morning with this super-interesting gentleman. Guillermo is incredibly knowledgable about the habitat of the lagoon and made the trip very enjoyable . He has lived a pretty cool life, which made him easy and fun to talk to as well. This is no cookie-cutter tour. We will definitely be looking him up when we're in Puerto Rico again. Don't miss out on this opportunity if you're near San Juan.

Guillermo provided a wonderful and safe paddle boarding excursion to this first timer. He had my friend and I up on our boards within the first minute with his detailed instructions. He also takes photos so you can remember and capture your experience. I can't wait to go back to PR and paddle board with Guillermo. He also gave us wonderful restaurant recommendations and meet our group out for cocktails one night. Just an all around great guy!!

Guillermo was wonderful in planning and guiding the tour! Kept in communication about weather and picking us up, taught us about the area we were paddle boarding in (check out the giant iguanas when you go), and even took amazing photos! Such a great time, will definitely go again next time we are in PR! Thanks again, Guillermo!
