- Start this breathtaking tour with an approximate 60-minute narrated drive from San Juan to El Yunque National Forest. The Caribbean National Forest, known as El Yunque, is the only tropical rainforest in the United States National Forest System.
- Upon arrival at the rainforest, you will stop at the Visitor's Center and learn about the many plants in the forest and their uses for natural remedies, spices and musical instruments. From here, start your journey through this spirited land. Note: This is not an active hike. This is a low impact walk through the rainforest.
- El Yunque's rugged land climbs from almost sea level to about 3,500 feet above sea level and is doused with up to 200 inches of rain every year. According to ancient Indian legend, the good spirit "Yuquiyu" reigned on his mighty mountain-top throne, protecting Puerto Rico and its people.
- This walk takes you to Coca Falls for a wonderful photo opportunity and a breathtaking view. Many of the sights you will see are the same as those that dazzled the first Spanish explorers more than 500 years ago.
- From the heart of the rainforest, you will hear the incessant, yet delightful 2-note chanting of the "Coqui," the chattering of unseen tropical birds and, if you're lucky, the squawk of the endangered Puerto Rican Parrot.
- Make a scenic stop where you can appreciate the views of the East Coast of Puerto Rico including Fajardo, Rio Grande and on a clear day the out Islands of Palomino and Iccacos.
- Your time in the rainforest is approximately 3 hours, including nature walk, rest stops, lookout points and the stop at the El Portal Visitor's Center.
- Guests must be ambulatory. Wheelchairs (collapsible or electric) are not permitted. Tour operators will deny participation to Guests arriving in wheelchairs or electric scooters.
- Guests must be able to walk over well maintained paths, mostly paved, which can be wet or covered with leaves and or forest debris. Guests must be able to walk for up to one mile. Guests choosing not to do the walks can remain on the motor coach.
- Certain attractions at the rainforest may be closed at times due to maintenance, weather conditions and/or remodeling.
- Guests are encouraged to bring currency or credit cards to purchase optional extras such as souvenirs and snacks.
- Please note that this is a rainforest and it rains in an average of 4 times a day. We suggest you bring rain slickers or ponchos.
- Guests are encouraged to wear comfortable walking shoes (flip flops are not permitted) and clothes that can get wet. You are also encouraged to bring sunscreen, bug spray, sunglasses, a hat, water, and a camera.
- You should never feel that gratuities are expected, but it is customary to leave a tip in recognition of exceptional service in restaurants, taxis and for excursion guides and drivers. It is always up to you to determine the amount.
