“Great photo op in the forest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Climb to the top of the tower and you'll get some nice views/photos of the coastal waters off in the distance. Some of our favorite photos from vacation came from this location. There is not a lot to do at this site, other than climb the tower and take in the view and landscape, but we enjoyed our time. We would probably rate this a 4.5.

“Stunning views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

The million and one stairs required to get to the top of the Yokahu tower are a small price to pay for the breathtaking views you will find atop it. From the gorgeous beaches, to the skyscraping mountains your eyes will be delighted with the sights presented.

There are informative placards about local wildlife and scenery all along the path to the tower.

Bring some cash if you would like to purchase memorabilia; credit/debit is not accepted!

“Panoramic View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

The view is breathtaking. You can see from the tops of the foggy rain forest mountains to the shores of the bright blue ocean. There is a large number of stairs, but there was very little crowding at the top of the structure. There's a little souvenir shop at the base of the tower - it has postcards, and if I remember correctly, little frog necklaces.

“Best place for panoramic view of rain forest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

Located directly on the Forest Road, it offers a wonderful view of the surrounding terrain. Better outlooks are available but require extreme hiking to remote peaks. Come on, try it, it will take you 15 minutes.

“Spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

The views from Yokahu tower are spectacular and it takes only about couple of minutes to climb up the tower. You can even see the ocean from Yokahu.
