Named after the benevolent Indian spirit Yokahú. El Yunque is the only Tropical rainforest in the U.S. National Forest System. Made up of some over240 different species of trees, it is actually a series of forests, each one determined by its altitude. El Toro, the highest peak in the forest at 3,532 feet. More than 100 billion gallons of precipitation fall each year, creating the jungle-like ambience of lush foliage, sparkling leaves, shining wet rocks, and shadowy paths occasionally pierced by sunlight. Spectacular waterfalls rush alongside its well-maintained trails. There are many favorite spots for visitors to take photos or a refreshing dip in the pristine pools.

No one knows how many specimens of the noisy, ubiquitous tree frog,"El Coquí", Live here, but you'll hear from them... Naturalists have a better idea of the number (and location) of endangered Puerto Rican parrots, but they're not telling. You can see the forest best on foot, but much of its splendor can be appreciated during a slow drive up and down the mountain. You can explore on your own, park along a roadside tower to see the view, or take a guided tour.
