WHAT YOU VISIT
El Yunque National Forest
Don't miss this great opportunity to visit El Yunque National Rainforest, the only tropical rainforest in the U.S. National Forest System. An approximate 45 minute drive will bring you to delight in the panoramic view of this tropical woodland with its unique flora. As you travel over the hills, you will enjoy several stops that will allow you to experience close at hand the sounds, scents and view of this captivating ecosystem, you'll stop briefly at one of its waterfalls. Choose to visit El Yunque and experience nature and its true beauty!

PHOTO OPP
A great way to capture the beauty of the rainforest is with a climb up the 1,575-foot high Observation Tower. From the deck you'll have spectacular views from the coast to picture-perfect El Yunque Peak. And you may witness the famous tree frogs launching into the air from the forest canopy.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
Located on the slopes of the Sierra de Luquillo mountain, you'll travel past a tropical paradise of colossal ferns, majestic pine trees, and hibiscus blossoms the size of platters and in colors that rival a box of crayons.
