Amazing Views!!!

Please visit the Tower, many steps (no elevator or ADA access) but worth the time. At 1,575 Ft the view is spectacular. One can see the ocean from here.

Beautiful scenic views of the rain forrest from up top. There's a few flight of stairs. Very easy stroll. Not much up there but the views.

I wouldn't do el Yunque with a tour guide. Me and my boyfriend took our rental car and drove to the tower for a quick visit (15 mins is enough) and then we drove to the waterfalls and trails. It was a wonderful experience and we found many private waterfalls (without any people) that we swimmed in.

This is marvelous. From the sight overseeing Luquillo beach, merging with the mountain ranges and houses is a thing of scenic beauty. The top of the observation gives the "Wow effect".

The view from the bottom is stunning. Once you get to the top, your jaw will drop. Definitely a must do for all who visit Puert Rico.

We had an overcast, rainy morning visit, so the view was not as great as it could have been. It was an enjoyable time, despite the rain. But, then again, what would a rain forest be without rain? Just another forest.

Stop here and walk tot he top - the view is worth it. You have to walk up about 5 flights of stairs though so be prepared

Cool looking castle-like lookout tower with views of the surrounding hills and valleys. Not a bad hike to the top either.

The observation tower has so much history and gives a stunning view of the shoreline from afar. There are steps and rails, but you're able to pace yourself and still capture awesome sights without going to the very top.

If you're in the rainforest, do yourself a favor and stop here. My girlfriend and I enjoyed a day with a bit of mist, with clouds rolling over the mountains. Absolutely gorgeous!
