We have been to El Yunque many times. So, this trip, we decided to visit a less well known waterfall. From Rio Grande, highway 186 takes you thru the forest to the waterfall. The road is not well maintained. Once you get to the falls...More

A must see for anyone who goes to Puerto Rico. Thank you Theodore Roosevelt for making it a National.Park. The trip to the water falls is well worth the walk. Stop at the tower to look over the valley. Plenty of folklores about the jungle....More

Must see area of Puerto Rico, and only a short drive out of San Juan, whether you have a car or take an arranged tour. Advantage of an arranged tour - no worries on directions and where to go, you will learn some local info...More

El Yunque is located in the northeastern section of Puerto Rico. There is a winding road leading up the the rain forest- in need of repair in some sections (recall hurricane Maria, 2017). Points of interest include a roadside souvenir shop and a cafe/bar serving...More

This is a beautiful place. To be able to see an actual rainforest was amazing. The water falling from the top of the mountains down into a pool you can dive in was incredible. A must see!!

Stunning natural areas and features. Really get a sense of the original nature of the island. We had a great tour guide, and did some fun adventures like jumping off cliffs, swimming in the deep natural pools, and sliding down natural stone waterfalls.

As you leave quaint Palmer (lunch suggestion: return to 18 degrees for lunch: vegan, natural juice/veggies/spices energy drinks and much more) and begin the climb PR191 you begin to internalize that a special experience is about to take place. The temperature 10 degrees drop hints...More

I do not remember the trail names too well but I do remember two of the higher trails being closed in August. There is a visitor center at the entrance that is very helpful.

Absolutely. Used google map onto 191N off HW26 near Caroline. Many signs on HW26 to show exit. 191 goes all the way to El Yunque trail parking lot. Car touring on this national park maintained road is the way to go.
