El Yunque: RainForest Experience

2. El Yunque: RainForest Experience

Visit the Caribbean National Rain Forest, known as El Yunque, the only tropical forest in the United States National Forest System. Learn about its rugged land, which climbs from almost sea level to about 3,500 feet above sea level and is doused with up to 200 inches of rain every year. Hear the story of the good spirit "Yuquiyu", part of an ancient legend, who reigned on his mighty mountain-top throne, protecting Puerto Rico and its people. See the same sights as those that dazzled the first Spanish Explorers more than 500 years ago, see the forest from the 69-foot Yokahú tower, and take beautiful pictures at La Coca Falls. Marvel at 1,000-year-old trees, strange plants with exotic rainbow-colored flowers, and thick vines with great masses of lush red blossoms waving in the cool breeze. Hear the incessant, yet delightful tow-note chanting of the "Coqui," the chattering of unseen tropical birds, and, with some luck, the squawk of the endangered Puerto Rican Parrot.

Amazing experience!! Please make sure you use either black shoes or the oldest shoes you have in your closet because you will get into a lot of mud before and after the destination (if it happens to rain). Overall, it was such a great & worthy experience. Glad I was able to scratch this beautiful waterfall from my bucket list.

Excellent tour of the rain forest! The guides were very knowledgeable about the history, traditions, and culture of Puerto Rico. Be sure to bring old shoes - they will get muddy.

Jose Rapheal was an outstanding guide. He had great info to share, had a great sense of humor, and showed a deep concern for the safety and happiness of the people in his care.

All very well organized, accomplished and the attentive guides and very interesting explanations.

Beautiful hike and waterfall. So much fun cliff diving!!
