The El Yunque National Forest has been attracting visitors since the site's opening over a century ago.
There's lots to see and do along the twisting and turning roads. Don't miss the waterfalls, rivers, and the tower of this photo—especially if you want a fantastic view of the lush jungle and mountains, capped with rolling fog.
I suggest visiting on a weekday, in the morning. Be prepared for rainy weather even if it's sunny prior to entering. You can bypass the entrance, stay on the main road, and continue up till you reach this tower. Anything off the main road is free to visit and enjoy.
Look for groups of cars parked alongside the road, that's where you know there's probably a little river or waterfall around that area.

Hiking to Spectacular Views in El Yunque
Hike to waterfalls, climb viewing towers, and snap photos of stunning natural landscapes in the U.S. National Forest Service's only tropical rain forest. Keep an eye out for coqui, Puerto Rico's famous singing tree frogs, plus iguanas and all kinds of birds.
