Before you begin your hiking adventure you can stop at the visitors center. This was a pretty interesting part of our visit to El Yunque. It costs $3 per person to visit the center. After we parked the car we had to walked across this wooden bridge to get to the center. The center itself is not in the rain forest. It's at the bottom of the rain forest in an area known at the wet forest. The center is open 9 AM to 4:30 PM 7 days a week. The visitors center is loaded with exhibits and information about the importance of El Yunque, the wildlife of El Yunque and the plants and foliage of the area. Some of the features here include a cafeteria, gifts shop, bathrooms, and multi lingual staff.
