Can get there by car well into the rain forest. Great views from the top of the tower. Free parking and restrooms available here.

This is a very easy climb to the top and the view up there is great! Beautiful panoramic views of the rainforest all the way out to the ocean!

The winding staircase inside this tower is not a difficult climb for most. The breathtaking views from the top are well worth the climb. This is a perfect vantage point to see the valley below and all the way out to the ocean.

My only advice is to go very early in the morning. The tours start rolling in and it gets crowded quickly.

It's interesting to see a tower like this in the middle of the jungle, but it's really not that much to see, and unfortunately, it's not like a castle or tower from a few hundred years back - only about 50 years.

Nice little visit while in the rain forest! I wouldn't make a special trip just for this, but very cool if already there!

1575 feet above sea level - you can see all the way (10 miles) down to Luquillo and the Caribbean Sea. This is a must see for anyone coming to Puerto Rico.

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.
