This is a must see. It is the only national park that contains a rain forest. Even though it is hot and sticky on the hottest days, the short hike up into the towers is well worth the view. The rain forest plants and the coqui add a wonderful ambiance.

Amazing wildlife can be found there. Some of the beautiful wildlife are the Puerto Rican parrot, Broad winged hawk and the Puerto Rican Boa. Don't fret, if you don't see the parrots here you're bound to see it during your stay on the island.

Blessed by great views. Worth the effort and drive to get there . It's a lot cooler up there on El Toro and generally all over El Yunque is like a refuge from the heat of the the city. Spiritual, visual, peaceful. A great place to go!

Visitor center was damaged, closed and all you can do now is drive up to the Tower and a little past that....park closes at 6pm, so if your at the top, make sure you allow time, cause they close a gate in the middle of the park.

The female employees working at the parking lots and traffic are very rude and when you answer back at them they get even more hostile. They need to be trained in customer service(PRONTO). Also one of them didn't speak spanish at all, they should be bilingual. I am a local for the first time ever can you imagine how they... More
