Must See Rainforest Sight! Just 99 steps to the top of the Rainforest at the Tower for some of the best views in Puerto Rico! Beautiful sights all around from the NE coast including Beaches, Forest and City Views.

After a walk in the rain forest of El Yunque we made a very short stop at the Yokahu Observation Tower. The tower is easy to access and offers some nice views on the northeast coast and mountains.

Decided to stop and walk up the steps of the observation tower. Glad we did. The view from the top was amazing. It's a small area so be mindful of others. Everyone was friendly and taking pics without issue. A great view of the Forest.

About 90 steps - but not too difficult to climb. Worth it for the excellent views and breeze. Good photo opportunity to capture the surroundings and the panorama.

If you are able to climb the stairs, this is a place where you can get a great view. As you go up, you can take pictures through the open slots.

It's probably too late, but there is no charge to park anywhere in El Yunque. The only fee is to go to the visitors center and it's reasonable and worth a stop.
