The variety of trees and plants was amazing. Very much enjoyed hiking most of the trails in the park. Most of them are very manageable with paved or stone trails. Some get a little steep, but not too difficult. My wife was very proud that...More
Part of park still closed but still worth the drive. It’s a way to spend time out of the city. Tower and waterfall is open. Many hiking trails closed. Still a good visit but don’t spend a lot of time there.
It was a decent tour, just not over the top. My friend and I thought the tour description could have been better, i.e. do we need a swimsuit, towel, etc. All it said was to wear comfortable shoes, and that water and a light snack...More
Although the first day we visited El Yunque, there was a huge downpour (not the usual rain forest event), we did get to visit the following day and see it while it was a sunny day. The panoramic view from the tower was spectacular! We...More
This is a must do... I cannot wait to go back so I can explore more of the rainforest... Even if you don't hike any of the trails there are lots of wonderful places to stop and look at gorgeous views and breathtaking waterfalls...
We drove up to the top to check it out the first day, stopping at at a few spots. The next day we drove to the top early and hiked to the top tower, which has a paved walk all the way there.
This place was great! The hike wasn't too strenuous and the reward was amazing. Waterfalls and natural water slides!!! We took a tour group that brought us to a private area though.
My parents rented a car and went on their own. They enjoyed it...More
On Sunday February 10, 2019 4 of us rented a car and drove to the National Forest. The drive inside the forest was beautiful. The road is narrow, but plenty wide for 2 cars. Lots of "blind" curves so honk your horn. Use every available...More

I took a tour the first time and went on my own on my second visit. I would recommend just going on your own. The trailheads are well marked. There are maps available for free in several places. Parking is easy to access. The only thing better on the tour I took was the information the guide shared. I'm not sure that was worth the cost. I enjoyed being able to go at my own pace. There were places at which I wanted to spend more time, and there were places that I din't...with the tour you don't have an option.

Also: on your drive to approach El Yunque, you'll pass through a tiny town called Palmer. Absolutely stop at Degree 18, a healthy eating spot with fresh fruit smoothies, juices, bowls, etc. Fun "surf shack" vibe with... More
Also: on your drive to approach El Yunque, you'll pass through a tiny town called Palmer. Absolutely stop at Degree 18, a healthy eating spot with fresh fruit smoothies, juices, bowls, etc. Fun "surf shack" vibe with outdoor seating, hammocks, games, a dog, a cat, and really nice staff. Highly recommend (see my review here on TripAdvisor).
