It's a very calm, freah air forest (obvious) you have to be very alert so you don't miss the sign. It has a restaurant near by that you can see the river and eat just along side to it. It's a natural reserve and you...More

You are up in the mountains but there are plenty of areas to pull off and park. Walk the trails or just walk the roads. You will see MANY birds, flowers and trees! Bananas growing wild, ginger in bloom, and hummingbirds visiting the flowers are...More

Concierge at Marriott suggested this when I asked for somewhere different. Good grief all roads in Puerto Rico are sooooooooo curvy. This is apparently a local favorite. Nice path... pretty trees... nice creek. Then you get to a nice sized pool. Water was cold, but...More

It's a bit out there, and the road is nausea inducing, but worth the trip. Chorro Azul is a short hike off the road, paved. Ends in a small waterfall with a blue pool that you can swim in and jump from a short cliff....More

Ruta Panoramica West to East? (0 Replies)
We'd like to spend a few days driving the Ruta Panoramica from Mayaguez back to San Juan, thru Maricao, Adjuntas, Utuado, Toro Negro, and the Carite Forest Reserve. The guide we have suggests starting at Carite and heading west. Is it just as nice heading west to east, which fits our itinerary better?
