Fantastic experience foraging for mushrooms! We really lucked out by going right after a few really rainy days. We found such a variety all along our hiking path. Kurt and Yaritza are both so friendly and knowledgable you can't help but learn from them. If you're excited to see the underbelly of nature, this is the experience for you.

I was so happy to find this tour in Puerto Rico, as it's something incommon to find on the island. Kurt and Yartiza were so nice and knowledgeable about their field. My friend and I had a BLAST picking up mushrooms and learning about the biodiversity of forests in Puerto Rico. I totally recommend this experience to anyone that loves nature and learning.

Kurt and Yaritza are extremely knowledgeable about fungi and plants. I learned a lot about identifying mushrooms and the type of habitat to look for. In between mushroom sightings they also taught us about the flora and fauna. They pointed out several interesting plant and bird species. It was fun and educational. Really nice, genuine people. They put a lot of thought and effort into the tour and it shows. A wonderful way to spend the day. They gave us great restaurant recommendations as well for later in the evening. I highly recommend this tour. 👍🏻

What an amazing and educational experience. Kurt and Yaritza were excellent guides and I learned so much about the mushrooms, plants, animals, biology, and history of the island. Our group hiked through Julio Enrique Monagas Park and the beach in Dorado. Kurt and Yaritza are incredibly knowledgeable and even provided us with a self-illustrated mushroom zine to take home as well as local snacks. Thank you for an awesome day!

Kurt and his partner were great guides! From the first few minutes on it felt less like a stuffy tour and more like hiking along with some old friends. He took my group to two public park, one on a nearby mountain and another on the beach. As we hiked on the mountain, he pointed out mushrooms, identifying them and showing us how to do the same. He also told us of some uses of the mushrooms or how they fit into the broader ecology around us. His partner (Jarita, if I remember correctly), identified plants and pointed out birds and identified them by their calls. We hiked along the beach in hopes of finding some chanterelles, but we spent our luck on spotting a large group of Macaws. I totally recommend this tour, especially if you are interested in getting out into nature and not keen on the big group tours.
