Travelers' Choice
Yuquiyú is a rustic retreat in the foothills of Puerto Rico’s El Yunque rainforest. We are a glamorous camping, or “glamping,” destination that offers artisan-crafted treehouses with a balcony, designer furnishings, a granite kitchenette and a slate bath. Surrounded by a tropical garden with a cascading river, each treehouse has an iconic view of El Yunque Peak. From Yuquiyú, it is just fifteen minutes to the heart of El Yunque rainforest, twenty minutes to famed Luquillo Beach and thirty-five minutes to Old San Juan. With one of our treehouses as your base, you can discover the rainforest, multi-hued beaches, sea turtle nesting sites, coral reefs, a bioluminescent lagoon, ancient petroglyphs, a Spanish colonial city and Culebra Island. The rate for La Cara de Indio, La Cascada or El Mirador is from $225 per night. Tax adds 7%. Each treehouse can accommodate a maximum of two people. The minimum age is 18 years. The minimum stay is two consecutive nights. No pets are allowed.

Everything about this stay was amazing, the property, the quiet peacefulness, the wonderful staff that care for the land and manage the restaurant, the FOOD! was incredible. We wanted a peaceful forest getaway with a beautiful river to swim in and explore, and this was everything and more. I am going back in a couple of months!

Property's Favorite Review
My fiance and I stayed in La Cara Indio for two nights. Our delight and awe of the treehouse and the view was dampened the first night because there was no hot water. And after traveling by plane, ferry, horseback riding, rolling around at Playa Negra, chatting with people from around the globe, and the coronavirus pandemic that is happening now, you might imagine our panic and dismay. But...the hot water was fixed the next morning at around 10am. Though our plans had to be altered and excursions cancelled, were finally able to take a hot shower. And just like that, the beauty of the treehouses could be appreciated. Everything in all of the other 5 star reviews is true!! The treehouses are of high-quality craftmanship and the detail...cashews, coffee, fresh lemonade, fresh coconut milk,fresh fruit, a fully equipped kitchen, plush towels...all of these small details made our brief visit special. The governor put the whole island on a 9pm curfew and that caused mayhem in the street. Being stuck in traffic caused us to miss our reservation at the onsite restaurant, but Fiyah, the chef and groundskeeper, prepared our meals to go. And let me tell you: the man can cook!!!! The food was absolutely delicious. If he ever creates a cookbook, I'd be first in line to purchase!!! My meat-eating fiance devoured his lentil veggie burger! I enjoyed my pasta and portabella burger. We couldn't eat it all, but it was really good! If you go, please add dinner reservations. You will be glad that you did! Manny was incredibly kind and though neither employee was too thrilled with a complaint that I originally posted, they seemed to understand why I was livid. So that no other visitor has to go through the same thing, especially in the face of coronavirus, I asked if they would check the hot water heaters one hour before visitors were scheduled to check in. They agreed. Of course, outages and equipment failures cannot be predicted and things can fail even with the best of planning. Plus, if it's raining, electricians can't do their jobs. But, I just think that every little effort towards providing a positive customer experience will help. But in keeping the overall experience in perspective, IT WAS AMAZING! We enjoyed the walk down to the river and seeing all the lizards and iguanas. The sound of coqui frogs, birds,and rushing water put us to sleep and woke us up each morning. The views from the balcony, kitchen sink, and bed were everything! Being able to look out into the rain forest while showering was nothing short of AMAZING! A few tips: the drive up is not for the speedster..the road is narrow and curvy. I recommend not driving the path in tbe dark. Take.your.time. Go here to unplug and enjoy time in nature. There is no tv..and there shouldn't be. There is electricity and a power strip to charge your phone. We turned ours off. Bring beach shoes or thick- soled flip flops in case your bathroom is below your treehouse. Only take the clothes and toiletries that you need. My fiance had to lug a super heavy suitcase up and down the rocky steps...It would have been so much easier if we would have lightened our load before trekking to our treehouse (on other nights, we stayed in other places on other islands in the area while on vacay. ) Do enjoy the goodies that are already in the room! Use the Nutri-bullet to make a great smoothie! And if your hot water doesn't work (though I don't think this will happen), remember that it's not Manny's or Fiyah's fault. Sometimes shyt happens. I would stay here again...

It was a great 2 night stay for us. The view was amazing. The property was very well maintained and beautiful. Sleeping at night was so comfortable as we slept with the windows and doors wide open as a cool breeze filled the room. There's a path that leads to the bottom of the property to a relaxing swimming hole and a wooden deck to enjoy a drink and the sounds of nature. My only complaint is no one responded to my email or text inquiry during my stay. I was told to text a number that was on business card in the room if we ever needed anything. I texted the number because we needed more coffee and fruit but unfortunately no one responded. Not a big deal for as we are easy going people but it might be for others. Aside from that it was an amazing stay. We definitely will come back!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about our stay at Yuquiyú. Our treehouse was the perfect size, clean and comfortable. The views were breathtaking. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. We had dinner one night at Huerto Escondido. I was initially skeptical about how the food would be, considering it was vegan, but I really had no reason to worry...the food was amazing. The property is well maintained and private, I really loved staying here and would love to come back one day. I highly recommend staying here over a traditional hotel experience!
