"Swimming in the Falls" El Yunque/Caribbean Rain Forest Tip by liqdstar

  swimming in El yunque falls
by liqdstar

El Yunque is a definite visit. I think it took us about an hr and 1/2 to drive to from San Juan.

Right before the entrance there is an amazing empanada stand. MMMM...you have to try the empanadas and coconut juice. When you're done drinking the juice, theyll cut the coconut for you.

El yunque can get crowded, so I would recommend trying to get there on a weekday. ITs very hot and humid in there, but the great thing is that you can cool off at one of the many falls!

Its a beautiful forest, not as much of a rainforest as I thought it would be, but nevertheless beautiful. Be prepared to do a bit of walking, it is very hilly and can get tiring in the heat.
