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...…
This place is simply amazing. I would have stayed here for my entire week in Puerto Rico if I had known. If you love nature, beauty, the rain forest, excellent food, and amazing rustic accommodations, then this place for you. Super happy and can’t wait to come back!
Yuquiyu and Puerto Rico both exceeded our expectations. (Although, given the generally rave reviews, I did have high expectations of Yuquiyu), Our "treehouse" was as beautifully appointed as a fancy hotel: cherry cabinets, granite countertops. Manny and Faya put their hearts and souls into caring for this place, and it shows. We felt very warmly welcomed, and will definitely return.
When staying here we immediately realized it’s not a hotel but a blissful life changing experience. We soaked up every bit of its wonders. I hope I take some of its beauty and peace with me wherever I go. Food was fulfilling and healthy, adding to the experience. I recommend eating on here so you can walk back to your treehouse along the softly lit gardens under the night sky. We will be back.
Just came back from staying in the cabin, my partner and I travel a lot for work and we both agreed almost immediately that this had to be the best place we have ever stayed in our lives. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and being surrounded by all the beauties of nature, sound, smell and noises. Earnest the owner was very helpful ahead of our trip and very kind and was treated by Manny who welcomed us was very kind. Watching the sunrise with all the breakfast provisions before our morning swim in the river was another highlight. Look forward to getting back here ASAP!!
