Worth the nerve racking narrow roads with hair pin turns! You'll need GPS to actually find the Forest center, but it is worth the drive and hunt! Interestingly, the forest contained more flowering trees than the rain forest. The bamboo outcroppings were stunning.

We camped in Toro Negro for two nights. If you want to get away from the tourists of El Yunque and hike on uncrowded trails through beautiful landscape, this is a good option! The campground only has several spots, but each site comes with a covered pavilion with a picnic table and built in bench seating around the outside. There's... More

There is long walk to get there, but is worth it!! I climb to the top of the mountain, where a post tower from the time of the Spaniard still stand. The view is breathtaking, there is no mountain tops higher, just clouds that you think you can touch. From there you can see the southern coast and the beautiful... More

My boyfriend and I visited the forest on a weekday. It was absolutely beautiful! There are many hikes in the park. Be careful driving up the narrow and curvy road.

I arrived close to 17:00 in March 2012, ready to camp. No one was around, save for one family I saw leaving the reserve. My guidebook mentioned there is always someone at the security office who could issue me the camping permit. However, I only saw one building (I assume it was the DRNA building- not security) and it was... More

I've been to every camp site in the island and this one is just breathtaking. I must say it does get cold... (the area is called "El Frio") so be sure to take your sweaters and a nice sleeping bag. It's a safe place with a river right next to the camping area that takes you to a natural swimming... More

Be prepared to take a nice curvy drive, best when done with plenty of time, into the heart of Puerto Rico, excellent humid fresh air..filled with coqui singing.

I've camped here three times and I love it. The nature is spectacular, unspoiled and verdant. The campground is not luxurious, there is no electricity or hot water but it's rustic charm is what I love best about it. Each campsite has a gazebo with a table, a covered bbq area and a fire pit. It has clean running water... More
