PHOTO ESSAY: El Yunque Rain Forest

So much water, so much greenery and a spot of color in El Yunque.

So much water, so much greenery and a spot of color in El Yunque.

View from the tower.

Water, water everywhere. Waterfalls crashing over towering rocks. Raindrops splashing against lacy green ferns. The gurgle of a stream hurrying down the hill.

El Yunque, a sub-tropical rain forest outside of San Juan, Puerto Rico, offers gorgeous vistas of mountain and ocean, paths to follow and waterfalls to admire. Take a half day van tour (We took Castillo Tours) and get a glimpse of this wondrous place or lace up your hiking shoes and grab a poncho for a walk through a natural Eden.

Either way, it’s not a place to be missed if Puerto Rico is on your itinerary. Can’t get there right away? For you, a photo essay….
