So if you are visiting Puerto Rico you have probably heard about the El Yunque rainforest. It is the only tropical rainforest in the US National Forest System and is a must on your ‘to do’ list. We have updated ‘Visit The Coqui’ to include summaries of the walking trails in the El Yunque rainforest.
The rugged Luquillo Mountains that rise to 3,533 ft. above sea level comprise most of the forest land and each year about 600,000 visitors from all over the world visit the rainforest and walk the many trails. There are 6 main trails in El Yunque ranging in difficulty from easy to challenging. The six trails are; Big Tree Trail, La Mina Trail, Caimitillo Trail, El Yunque Trail, Mt. Britton Trail and Baño de Oro Trail. Summaries of these trails can be found here.
Remember to bring your camera and enjoy everything El Yunque has to offer.
