Visited in may 2015. Amazing place but got soaked to the skin in a matter of mins., didn't take a rain mac and should have done. I took a hand towel which was just enough to dry my hair. Fabulous flora and fona . Trail into the forest on a down ward gradient was very slippery. A wonderful trip. However,... More

Hiked to the top of Mt. Briton and Mt. Yunque. Views were great. Rainforest was lush with tropical vegetation (of course). Endemic yellow heliconia was in bloom. Many beautiful water features, small falls. Endemic birds if you have patience and know where to look. Very crowded on Sunday .. but much better during the week. Most folks go to the... More

We enjoyed the scenic drive, though some visitors from the mainland might find the windy roads, fast traffic, and potholes too stressfull. The visitor's center staff were friendly and helpful. We got ideas for hikes and had a light lunch there. The hikes were nice, though we were surprised by the concrete pathway to Mino Falls.

Although it requires a $4+ entrance fee, we enjoyed the simple but interesting visitor center. Included an informational movie (didn't watch it, not sure if it is shown in English), displays, a small cafe, and the day we visited, vendors with hand made crafts. Two interesting striated rainbow eucalyptus trees are in the parking lot. No ranger anywhere to answer... More

Let me start by saying that if you are not in a healthy condition you should consider staying by the side of the road and look at the scenery .... If you go to la Mina...you have to walk and hike for about 45 minutes... It's a rain Forrest! It Will Rain!!! Be sensible and wear tennis shoes (don't take... More

Luquillo Beach, renowned for so very long, with its lovely run of palm trees may be some of the calmest baby blue water accessible anywhere in Puerto Rico and it's just a hop and skip from this second most impressive setting, an easy enough- two for one - day trip from San Juan well worth making. Here citizens of America,... More

Wasn't impressed with the water falls we saw. La Coca Mina falls was disappointing. I thought it would be a much more impressive water fall. The pool to swim in was not as big as I thought it would be. It rained like hell (It's a rain forest) but we enjoyed the hike. Don't bother paying $4.00 to go to... More

Awe inspiring is the only way to describe the forest. Beautiful trails and only short walks to amazing waterfalls to go swimming. Another fantastic part of the island of Puerto Rico! This is a MUST-DO attraction when visiting the island.
