At the risk of sounding totally corny, this place is magical! My boyfriend and I only spent 1 night at Carole's but it was the highlight of our PR trip. Her place is right before the entrance to the El Yunque National Park. You're basically in the rainforest here.
Carole was friendly and accommodating. She chatted with us for a while and made us some delicious banana smoothies. After she retired for the night, my boyfriend & I had the outdoor kitchen area to ourselves. We sipped wine, watched the sunset and listened to the sounds of the rainforest. The sunset was AMAZING and the coqui, birds & bugs sang to us all night.
The room was comfortable and clean. The more nights you book, the better your nightly rate. Carole requires payment by personal check which may seem odd but it's legit; don't worry that you're being scammed or anything.
We traveled as a couple July 2014. If you want an overnight rainforest experience without having to camp in El Yunque, Carole's is your spot!
