You can't go to Puerto Rico and not go here!! Seeing this mixture of trees and greenery is amazing!! Not all of the turnouts are open yet after Maria but it's still beautiful and worth the trip.

As hurrican Maria devastated 2017 a lot of the National Park area, one should check the NPS website in advance. The NPS guys reconstructed many areas in the meantime. Check the attached map (which one gets after entering the National Park Portal) with an overview...More

The few staff we encountered were very friendly! If you can drive yourselves, I would. Seeing those big tour buses shuffling people in and out did not look fun. There are some hiking trails open if you feel up to it, but it is also...More

Stayed at the rainforest inn and took a private hike on the ox cart trail. Hard to find but a nice hike for the novice. The trail is paved and not that steep. It's about a 30 minute walk. The end result is amazing. Bring...More

No renting a car isn’t an option this time, but considering so much of the trails are closed, I would rather go with a guide that knows the ins and outs in terms of safety and what is open.

The La Parguera was rebuilt and is beautiful, El Yunque was partial close towards the top when we went in September 2018 due to the hurricane. It worth seeing both.
