Amazing view of the forest and island from here

This tower is near the road in the El Yunque Forest and provides a superb view of the surrounding rain forest and the island all the way to the sea.

Don't bother stopping on the way up the mountain. Do it on your way down but they close at about 4:30.

One gets a great view by climbing to the top of the tower. It is worth going up the 98 steps and it is not too dffficult a climb.

The Observation Tower offers one if the most beautiful views of the rainforest and the water. There are great views both from the base and the top. It closes at 4:30pm which is right when we got there so make sure and plan accordingly. There is a small parking lot to park in.

Nice view but nothing much more - its a good quick stop. There is no fee to get in, but you will have to climb about 60 seconds of stairs to get to the top for the views. Very nice views.

This is a 10 minutes stop in El Yunque Forest, close to the road and parking lot. It gives nice views of the park and beyond. We were there on Sunday and it was quite crowded. There are bathrooms and a little gift shop.

We almost skipped this, but SO HAPPY we didn't! Climb 8 stories to a lookout of the entire Rainforest canopy. You don't need a tour guide. There is a paid telescope to look through at the top, bring quarters. No hiking involved for this lookout. We took professional grade video blog footage to share with you of the observation tower,...

great view at the top of mountains and even can see the ocean a little. There is an overview nearbye worth stopping by with a similar view as top of tower but a different angle.
