Take a break from the heat of the beaches with at trip to the Rainforest. The Caribbean National Forest is the only rainforest in the US Forest Service system. Along route #191 there are many easily accessible places to visit such as; Yokahu Tower, Yuquiyu Snack Shop and upon entering the forest El Portal, The Visitors Center. For the more advance hiker there are many trails to explore. Hiking to the top of El Yunque or to Mount Britton Tower will give you magnificent views of the rainforest and its canopy. Be prepared for rain. After all, it is a rainforest and has acquired that name for an obvious reason.
The forest is open daily from 7:30 AM until 6:00 PM
