We booked an adventure tour- hiking, zip lining and jumping into a lake- we had a lot of fun and met a nice bunch of people and at the same time got to see the rainforest from a different side.

We enjoyed our trip to Yunque but we were not overwhelmed. We did a short trip maybe about 3 hours. In that time we toured the visitor center and watched a good short film on Yunque which was a nice orientation. There is a short...More

Post-Hurricane Maria the El Yunque Rain Forrest is roaring back to its lush green self. Lot's of birds and the sound of El Coqui. Several waterfalls are now accessible. It is breathtakingly beautiful. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Definitely worth a visit.

You have to wear shoes you can hike in because the waterfalls are breathtaking. I went in July 2017 I got sprinkles off and on which helped cool us off. Lots of greenery of course but just imagine leaves that are bigger than your face.
