Be an El Yunque junkie in North America's only tropical rainforest

According to Indian legend, El Yunque was a good spirit that protected the island of Puerto Rico. For a totally tropical vacation, head to the island's northern reaches and the El Yunque rainforest. Perched on the windward side of the El Yunque mountains, the region is renowned for its amazing views and hardy hiking trails. Book an El Yunque National Forest vacation rental within easy reach of the rainforest and you'll have access to some of Puerto Rico's best walking spots. Don't miss La Mina Falls and the Dwarf Forest, where if you're lucky, you could spot the endangered Puerto Rican parrot.

Things to do

Swinging in the rain—treetop walkways and waterfalls

The El Portal Tropical Forest Center is the main visitors' center in the forest. Perched along an elevated walkway, this modern facility is open every day. It attracts a small charge to enter. One of the most popular attractions in the forest is La Mina Falls, which is accessed by 2 fairly short trails, La Mina or Big Tree. Pick up a trail map and grab a picnic from the on-site deli. For more dedicated rainforest fans, there's also a fascinating educational center. On the last weekend of every month, it hosts a small craft market by local artisans.

Activities

Funky El Yunque—Mama Nature at her best

One of the major draws to the El Yunque National Forest is its wild abundance of hiking trails. Covering 28,000 acres and with peaks of over 3,000 feet, the forest sees over 200 inches of rain each year and claims to be the only tropical rainforest in the United States. To really appreciate the forest's ecosystem, take a guided tour from the Visitor Center, go birdwatching or embark on a treetop walk through the rainforest. From your El Yunque National Forest vacation rental, you're within easy reach of natural pools, waterfalls, and tropical rainforest—Mother Nature at her best.

Weather

I can see clearly now the rain has gone

As a Caribbean island, Puerto Rico is blessed with balmy year-round temperatures. It does, however, have a rainy season between April and November, so make sure you pack plenty of waterproofs. June is the hottest month of the year, which can bring the threat of hurricanes. The busiest season to visit the forest is between November and March, when El Yunque National Forest vacation rentals get snapped up pretty quickly. Winter is the dry season, although as a rainforest, the wet stuff is never very far away. It's slightly cooler at night, but daytime temperatures are a toasty 80 degrees or more.

Natural features

You won't find cheeky monkeys in El Yunque

On the eastern flanks of Puerto Rico, the El Yunque National Forest is only a 40-minute drive from San Juan, the island's capital city. Formed from an underground volcano, there is little natural wildlife on the island, so no chance of finding monkeys here. However, the forest is a natural birdwatchers paradise. Aside from the 17 indigenous birds, including hummingbirds and the Puerto Rican Pewee, there are 300 migratory birds who also call the island home. Keep your eyes peeled for the endangered Puerto Rican green parrot, that's most likely to be spotted in the El Yunque National Forest.
