Owner description: A tower in El Yunque offering a sweeping view of the rainforest.

While rather easy to climb to the top (those in my party didn't even break a sweat or lose their breath), if you dread stairs, consider counting the steps as you climb to the top. Once up top, you are treated to a fantastic 360 degree view of the area. Soak in the beautiful scenery, but watch out for the crowds.

This was a cool old tower built in the 50's I believe. Go up to the top. You have some nice views as long as it is clear. Get there before the tour buses line up.

Hardly anyone here when we visited so no crowds and an easy climb via spiral staircase to the top with great views of the forest. Well worth the (little) effort.

My husband and I visited Yokahu Observation Tower in the El Yunque National Forest on November 19. Finding a spot to park in the lot may be tricky, but this tower is worth a stop. The spiral staircase up the inside of the tower is not too difficult. There are many landings along the way up to stop and take photos through the windows, or to rest if needed. The top is open and offers expansive views of the surrounding hillside and valley to the ocean. No cost to enter, although there is a small gift shop there for those who have to spend money.
