Our family of seven went on the two-hour horseback ride. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We have limited horseback riding experience, but that was not an issue. Only one person in our group had experience on horses. The younger kids did really well on this ride. They had smaller horses and didn't need to use the reins, which were just tied onto their saddles. It was great that they had such gentle horses for the little kids. There were three guides with our group and they were constantly checking on how we were, offering to take pictures and also talking about what we were seeing in the rainforest. We had a short stop by a river, which was relaxing. The younger kids waded in the water. Again, they took care to check over everyone's horses and make sure the equipment was all in order before we started back. I was very appreciative of the care they took of our group. This was our first big outing on our week-long trip and it really started things off well.

It was really convenient to the Wyndham. I emailed via the website to get info and then called to make my reservation. They did not even take our credit card. The ATVs were in great working order. There were several deep puddles of water to drive through and lovely rainforest scenery. There is a river to swim in and some surprises that I won't disclose. My only complaint is that even if both riders had driver's licenses, they did not allow them to switch drivers. It was pretty pricy, but a very positive experience.

Spent the afternoon riding atv's, Sean was our guide. He was great. the views were amazing. Plenty of great views. We'll worth the trip from San Juan area. We'd do this again if we make it back to PR.

We went to ride horses, the stayed for go karts and lunch. The horses were well-kept, looked clean and relaxed. My anxious 9-yr-old was paired with a very gentle horse and the guide stayed by his side throughout the ride. My 13-yr-old named his own horse and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. The owners are always on the property and the entire operation is well run. I highly recommend the restaurant for delicious local cuisine...try the churrasco, you won't be sorry! Did not try the ATV's on this trip due to time constraints, but we saw them on the trail and the riders looked like they were having a blast. Definitely recommend Carabali Rainforest Park to anyone making a Puerto Rico visit.

An awesome excursion! Riding ATVs through the rainforest with some of the most beautiful views of El Yunque! The guides were knowledgeable and provided history of the rainforest while making sure we were safe and having a good time! It is a rainforest, and you will get wet and muddy, be sure to bring towels and even a change of clothes!
