Lovely drive winding up to TJ Ranch resort tucked into the jungle highlands. Warmly greeted by hosts Tony and Joan/Juanita, shown to a comfy casita followed by an amazing (I should have taken pictures) seafood dinner prepared by Tony....and it went on like that for days! Waking to birds and jungle sounds, hot morning coffee ready and time walking grounds and enjoying nature. The pool tempting ... I was invited to join in the newest crossword puzzle in the dining hall...but let me warn you...separate the flat edge pieces first! There are serious puzzlers up there! Birding watching, exploring the grounds, solid sleeping, delicious dinners, and had it been hotter, dipping in the pool... just a few days jungle of jungle living melted stress away...

Our family of 4 stayed in the green casita. Our children loved it. They swam in the pool and enjoyed the coqui frogs at night. It was so peaceful. It is not an easy place to find so you must get there before dark every night which means you get to enjoy Tony's great cooking. The food was delicious and the hosts were a lot of fun. Be prepared for a little bit of foul language, but other than that, it is a great place for families. I loved that there was not much cell reception and there was no television so it was just nice to connect with my family and enjoy nature. This was one of our favorite places in Puerto Rico. It was a nice distance from many caves and the observatory.

For the traveler who loves nature, quiet, getting away from it all, and yet a little bit of "being catered to", this is the place! You're in the rain forest but with HOT water/showers, flushing toilets, cozy beds, beautiful swimming pool, and hot meals served whenever you tell them you'd like them to be served. Tony and Juanita are good about making the place "home" for you while there. I especially loved the fact that every night they'd get the coffee pot ready to brew so in the morning I could walk into their kitchen, press the button, and have coffee on my time! Sweet! The fact that there are only three casitas made it even more peaceful knowing there weren't going to be busloads of people breathing your air and fighting for the swimming pool space. We had the pool to ourselves! They even told us to knock on their door any time if we wanted something to eat or drink and they'd make it for us. Seriously! We did end up driving there in the dark which was not recommended by others who reviewed the place. We'd have to say it is a bit unnerving as the roads are bad and narrow as you get closer to the Ranch. But we made it without any trouble as we read the specific directions Juanita had sent us ahead of time. We have been to other places in the mountains before so the roads, although pretty yucky the last couple of miles, were a familiar driving experience to us. That's what you get in the rain forest to get away from it all! Adds to the adventure!

TJ Ranch hospitality is the finest in nature's purest form. Tucked in the rain forest outside Lago dos Bocas, the ranch is surrounded by lush vegetation in a peaceful, tranquil environment. The grounds and "casita" where we stayed were immaculately maintained. The cabin had a very comfortable bed and great bathroom facilities. Sleeping there among the forest's animal inhabitants was heavenly, and the coquis (native Puerto Rico frogs) sang to us throughout the night. An experience quite unlike anything we have experienced before. TJ Ranch is "back to nature" with all the hospitality amenities you need. Tony is a fantastic chef and together with Joan, are wonderful hosts that made our stay unforgettable.

We never make reservations in advance and when planning our next few days at a restaurant in Isabela, Puerto Rico we met the son and his friend having dinner at a table next to ours. Always wanting to chat with fellow tourists or locals we found out his parents ran a B and B/hacienda in what turned out to be a magnificent out of the way location in the mountains, near lagos dos bocas. Tony is an outstanding chef. The two dinners we had there ranked at the top of our 18 days in Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, St. Barth's and Anguilla. Juanita was a hostess with whom it was delightful to discuss everything and listen to the experiences of her uniquely fascinating life. I can't recommend this place highly enough. Escape from the crowded beaches and enjoy the beautiful mountain jungle as guest at TJ Ranch.
