El Yunque Rain Forest National Park
The east of Puerto Rico offers the only subtropical rainforest in the United States Forest Service. With its waterfalls, hiking trails, and panoramic vistas, the forest system is a nature lover’s wonderland, and offers tourists a variety of activities ranging from a leisurely hike to extreme adventuring.
There’s no other place like it in Puerto Rico. In fact, there’s no other place like it in the entire United States. Under its trees, you’ll find a unique ecosystem that has enchanted its visitors for centuries. There are plenty of reasons why it was a contender for the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Its 28,000 acres are crisscrossed with hiking trails that will take you on a mind-blowing journey.
