Yokahu Tower, built in 1963, is one of a pair of observation towers in El Yunque, the other being Mount Britton Tower. This is the much easier trip, with more consistent view. A few steps from the parking lot, you simply climb the wide spiral...More

The tower itself is nothing special, but probably the biggest highlight of excursions made to El Yunque. The views from the tower is very nice, you can even see to the sea from here. Personally, i prefer to walk in the rainforest and see plants...More

It may be a typical touristy place, but I’d say worth a visit for the views of the forest. Elevation of 1575 ft, 98 steps to the top. It was crowded so had to wait for videos/photos without people in it. Choose early morning before...More

It's probably too late, but there is no charge to park anywhere in El Yunque. The only fee is to go to the visitors center and it's reasonable and worth a stop.
