Our favorite hike is down to the waterfalls, but that wasn't open this last spring. We are hoping it will be open again when we next visit in December. Stunning scenery, lovely greenery!

While on vacation in San Juan, PR we went to visit the EL Yunque Rainforest, we rented ATV’s there and drove through the forest, had a great time and took beautiful historical pictures there, a great place to visit while there.

It provides ample and tasty portions, a wonderful ocean view, a comparatively fair cost (where everything’s more expensive), and a very relaxed pace of service.

Positive: The tour guide (Norma) was AWESOME! Very knowledgeable with a great personality. Negative: Everything else about the half-day trip was overpriced and underwhelming. 1) The pickup process/policy is horrendous. Expect them to be late - if they pick you up at all (we had...More

Enjoyed climbing on the rocks at the waterfall and the tower. Beautiful views from the top. We had a car and found it was easy to park.

As of August 2018, the rainforest still shows obvious signs of Hurricane Maria. However, it is still green and beautiful and worth visiting. The road is closed just beyond the Yokahu Tower and the guide stated that it would not be open for another “1-2...More

I was lucky to visit El Yunque while it’s roads are being reconstructed and the forest is brought back from the destruction left by Hurricane Maria. Some of the great spots like the waterfalls are open to the public but there are many other trails...More

It must be seen, the view from the rainforest is out of this world. Due to hurricane Maria part of the rainforest was closed. We were able to climb the Yokahu tower, see the Coca fall.

Lots of tourist have been stranded. I would suggest a guide if you want to go off the marked trail; if you are going to keep in the trails you don’t need a guide.

No. You could remt a car and go there by yourself from San Juan. You have to keep the directions for the open trails, some of them sre close. Ask a ranger there. Get plenty of water and food in a backpack. It is easy to... More
