This rain forest was truly mesmerizing! I was able to hike trails, see waterfalls, and breath taking views of the forest and coast. The San Diego creek was my ultimate favorite spot in the forest because we were able to swim under a beautiful waterfall...More

The Yunque is a must see. It’s the heart of Puerto Rico. Amazing scenery and plants. Historical tour was amazing with Castillo Tours. Carlos was very knowledgeable. My only regret was not doing a full day tour.

The trail to Mt Britton is well marked, paved in most areas and in some parts a steep incline. This area is mostly where you walk on the road between the main trail and second part. It took us under one hour to get to...More

What a wonderful attraction- around every turn something different or beautiful. Also don't forget the picnic area has 3 shelter houses - also have fireplaces. The tower is located there. Several trails are to open back in the coming months.

Talk about the beauty of nature. If this place doesn't recharge your batteries then you've lost your way.

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

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.
