Explore a tropical environment and hike to the top of mountains at Bosque Nacional El Yunque. Take one of the many trails to discover an abundance of plant and animal life within both the rainforest and dwarf forest. Keep your eyes peeled for the endangered coquis, a breed of indigenous tree frog. For panoramic vistas, follow the well-marked routes and climb to the top of one of the many mountain peaks or viewing towers. Pack a swimsuit and head to one of the small nearby waterfalls to cool off after your hike. Take a waterproof jacket as you can expect heavy rainfall all year round.

  • Very nice park, unfortunately when we were there, many of the hiking trails were closed because they hadn't been reopened after the hurricane. But everything else was on point, the park rangers are super nice and helpful, we talked with one of them about the wildlife and he showed us his bird-call app so we could identify birds. The pools and waterfalls and great to cool down!
  • El Yunque is a beautiful place. It's easy to get there, the only thing is that there is limited parking for the trails etc so watch out for that. It also gets a little cooler when your up there so it's nice and refreshing! All in all, a beautiful place to visit! A must go!
