Observation Deck Tourist Spot
Gain a new perspective of the forest on top of Yokahu Observation Tower, a cylindrical viewing tower located in El Yunque National Forest. Climb the 100 steps to the viewing platform at the top of the building to get sweeping views of the trees and hills of the impressive natural surroundings. Constructed in 1963, the tower has a twin elsewhere in the forest, though at a higher elevation and deeper into the park, the second is harder to access and frequently obscured by clouds.

  • Don't leave without going to the top! There are beautiful views and a cool breeze! The stairs are wide enough for 2 people  more »
  • A tower on the side of the road with good views of the rainforest. Nothing more nothing less. Good place to take pics.  more »
  • Great views. Breathtaking. Have to utilize steps to get to the top. Small gift shop at the bottom. I would suggest for photo opportunity.  more »
