There’s no other place like it in Puerto Rico. In fact, there’s no other place like it in the entire United States. El Yunque is the only subtropical rainforest in the United States Forest System.
Under its trees, you’ll find a unique ecosystem that has enchanted its visitors for centuries. There’s plenty of reasons why it is one of the world’s Top 28 New 7 Wonders of Nature. Its 28,000 acres are crisscrossed with hiking trails that will take on a mind-blowing journey.
From San Juan take Road 26 towards Carolina until you reach Road 3. Take Road 3 towards Fajardo for about 20 minutes until you get to Río Grande. Take Road 191 to El Yunque.
