Discover a lush tropical escape by hiking The El Yunque Rain Forest, noted for its remarkable biological diversity. The only tropical rainforest under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Forest Service, this verdant area shelters more than 400 plant species, many of which you can see by hiking any one of a dozen well-maintained hiking trails. An interpretative visitor's center highlights the importance of this sprawling forest, while picnic pavilions ensure enough space to rest and contemplate the significance of this green kingdom in eastern Puerto Rico. Check the website for suggested family-friendly hikes and a printable brochure explaining the history of the forest.
