DescriptionFeel like a true explorer on an off-the-beaten-path tour in the heart of the El Yunque Rainforest. Avoid big crowds as you blaze a trail to the lesser-known attractions of the lush tropical rainforest. The initial hike is a 25-30 minute journey up a rock and dirt path with some river wading. This trail is surrounded by bamboo trees, rainforest flowers, and many other beautiful plants. Visit a collecting pool that forms at the base of a waterfall. Here you will have the opportunity to swim in its crystal clear waters and admire the colors of its deep pools. Enjoy the cascades of the waterfall and take the opportunity to snap pictures. Continue exploring the rainforest and end your adventure in another pool area, the rainforest's best-kept secret. After a few minutes of hiking, arrive at a river where you can swim, swing from a rope into the river, and enjoy natural water slides.
