As I write, we are winding down towards our third and last night at the Rainforest Inn, on the edge of the El Yunque National Forest in Puerto Rico. The Rainforest Inn is a great location for exploring the eastern half of Puerto Rico. Bill and Laurie, our innkeepers, made us feel very welcomed. One of them was always around to offer advice on things to do. We are a party of four and visited the Rainforest Inn for my birthday weekend. Our 2-bedroom apartment (the Chalet, fully equipped, with a full kitchen and living room) was very comfortable. The living room was perfect for reviewing each day’s activities. And, between very active days and early nightfall, we were feeling ready to lay down for the night by about 8:30 and awoke with the sun at about 6:00 am. The sounds of the rainforest at night provided a great soundtrack for our sleep hours. Other than nature, the nights were absolutely quiet. We were up and out very early on our first morning, so we missed breakfast. Laurie brought up some granola bars, fruit and juice, so we didn't have to go without breakfast. On the second morning, we found out what we missed! This morning’s breakfast included asparagus and parmesan omelets, croissants with guava-flavored butter, fruit and yogurt, and a variety of mimosas. We are looking forward to breakfast tomorrow, our last morning. We all can offer our unreserved recommendations to the Rainforest Inn. We would not hesitate to come and stay with Bill and Laurie again in the future.
