Some really nice walks up to cascades.....can still drive through the rainforest if you arent mobile. The rainforest is not dangerous - you dont need hiking gear or anything ridiculous like that - you could do it in flip flops. Take your swimming gear if your going to the waterfalls! And there are trainl maps throughout and lots of other tourists around. Safe and enjoyable.

One of the reasons I want to return to Puerto Rico. This is an amazing place in the center of the island. Worth taking a day and exploring.

My wife and I did the half-day tour with Acampa. It was awesome! From the top of Yokahu tower you can see for miles around. The hiking was great (a lot of up and down slopes) and the scenery is absolutely beautiful. When we return to Puerto Rico, we will definitely go back to El Yunque!
