El Yunque National Rain Forest

A pleasant day trip from San Juan brings you to the El Yunque rain forest, a dense ecosystem, and the only rain forest in Puerto Rico. At the top of the El Yunque mountain, you can see an example of a dwarf forest, where stunted trees try their hardest to adapt to the rocky, drier soil of the higher altitudes. The shapes the trees make are fascinating. John Druitt, or Rubio, has been leading tours in this area for more than 10 years and he will plan an individual tour based on what excites you about exploring El Yunque.
