Drive and adventure in El Yunque. As of July 2018, the entire park isn’t open, but drive through the section that’s open and explore the places to stop and swim/wade, which make the trip worthwhile. The temporary visitor center in downtown Palmer (?) has a...More

El Yunque has fascinating places, beautiful trails where trees were identified so you can learn about nature. The rivers are amazing with cold water. The park has tour guides (reservation is required) to help you visit the places while you learn from the forest.
