  • Discover the forest's pristine rivers and its natural waterslides
  • Feel like an explorer while hiking thru a lesser known zone of the forest
  • Get off the paved trail and go in an off the beaten path adventure


Feel like a true explorer and challenge yourself to an off-the-beaten-path adventure in the heart of the El Yunque Rainforest. Begin with a 25-30 minute journey up a rock and dirt path, along with some river wading. Enjoy being surrounded by bamboo trees, rainforest flowers, and many other beautiful plants as you hike into the refreshing natural pools. First, a visit to a collecting pool that forms at the base of a waterfall. 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 into the forest as you climb to another set of pools (more advanced). Arrive at a river where you can swim, swing from a rope into the water, and enjoy natural water slides.
