What You Can Expect

El Yunque Rainforest Hiking from San Juan

El Yunque Rainforest Hiking from San Juan

For an up-close tour of El Yunque that includes a semi-athletic hike, put on your walking shoes to enjoy a 35-minute hike to La Mina. You’ll discover an amazing world of nature trails, waterfalls, scenic views and the sub-tropical rainforest habitat of Puerto Rico’s endangered wildlife.

El Yunque takes its name from an Indian spirit, Yuquiye, meaning "Forest of Clouds". There are many ways to see the rainforest but hiking is the best way to experience this amazing place!

After hiking through the rainforest to La Mina (35 minutes each way), cool off with a relaxing swim or dip in La Mina Falls (10-minute stop). Make sure you have a good breakfast before taking this tour!

The rainforest is home to more than 240 species of plants and wildlife, waterfalls, streams and hiking trails leading to enticing locations. You'll see tree orchids, giant ferns, wild flowers, tropical hardwoods, spectacular waterfalls and views of the entire north-east coast.

The tour stops at the most beautiful photographic sights, including Jokahu Tower, so don't forget to bring your camera!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

I would definitely reccomend this trip to anybody visiting Puerto Rico. It was super convenient being picked up at our hotel, and our guide Sammy was fun and funny and told us many interesting facts about Puerto Rico on our drive there, including good places to eat. We got many spectacular photos of the ranforest and and the hike itself was not that strenuous. With that being said, it is a rainforest so it rains a lot, so bring a rain poncho and make sure to wear good shoes, the trail is very slippery.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

The hike is a fantastic trip to take and well worth it. Only takes a few hours to complete so shouldn't be hard to fit into anyone's time table. The guide Tony, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about most anything you could ask during your rainforest hike.
