As of 2/20/2018, most of the park was inaccessible. Visitors center and hiking trails were all closed. Could only drive in as far as Coca falls.

The trail is very clear, and it is easily accessible. Such a beautiful hike to a waterfall. Water was freezing but you can get in the water and under the waterfall. Once and a lifetime experience.

We took an excursion from our cruise ship and even though the ride was long it was worth it once you got to the Rain Forest. It’s truly a beautiful site to see the waterfall and the views from the tower. Well worth the trip!

We visited the forest in January 2018. We did not drive deep into the forest because some volunteer workers told us the road we were on was quite dangerous. Indeed, when we met them we were trying to find a place we could safely turn...More

I was there before the hurricane, but didn’t do my review until later. Check with your travel agent to be sure.
