Kind of expected to see tropical animals, and lots of insects. Really didn't see anything, just trees, and the tropical forest. Kind of boring. On the other note, Puerto Rico was/is dealing with the after affects of the hurricanes.

One of the most think tack Uhler excursions to go one there are no words to describe the beauty of this location.

I followed a tour to the rain forest. It’s very beautiful and there’s a pond we could swim. Also there’s a rock sliding. Definitely recommend!

It's a lush rainforest with lots of activities. You can take a drive, take in the view or go ziplining.

Great time hiking in the rain forest, learning about some of the vegetation, even the one imported by the conquistadores, finishing it with a swing/swim in a fresh water source/waterfall. It is not for the faint of heart, the walk is challenging, especially after the...More

As you may have read.. most of the forest is off limits due to hurricane damage. Check out Angelitos Trail and you'll have a nice 20-30 minute hike. At the end is a rope swing but it's in a terrible location...dangerous... and non sensical to...More

Yes. It is the most interesting forest and pretty mountain here, but I have to admit that maybe is not the best time for visiting it. By other hand, we have other interesting mountains and parks in the island. “Cerro Punta... More

Lots of tourist have been stranded. I would suggest a guide if you want to go off the marked trail; if you are going to keep in the trails you don’t need a guide.
