I love history and love the ocean. Such a great combination of the two.

This trail is still closed from hurricane Maria but the rainforest is gorgeous and still worth the visit. They do allow you far enough up (driving) to see Coca Falls and they also allow you to go to the first viewing tower just a little past the Coca Falls. There isn't a lot of parking but stay patient and you will get a spot. There is a 30 minute time limit on parking. Only trail we found that was open was Angelito. Short but it leads you to a nice stream.

This is not a hike but an easy walk except for the 5 ft of rock scramble due to closed bridge section. We get there early to avoid cruise ship traffic and local family picnics but our dog swims and the rope swing is great if you go as high as possible before swinging to give you a huge arc and avoid the rocks. You can sit in natural rapids for a jacuzzi and water is perfect temp as long as you just jump in.

This trail is inaccessible as of today 6/24/2018 due to road construction.

My favorite hike in el Yunque forest. Have done it so many times that lost count. It is beautiful hike and the views on the Rock (to the right couple of minutes prior reaching the top) are amazing. Then can go down the road to reach Mt Britton and continue that trial which connects to Yunque trail or continue the road until another trial to have different view and then just take the road back to the parking lot. Not sure if it has open after the hurricane so check before going.

Beautiful forest, fairytale hike. Few great views on the way. Not very difficult. Come early so you won't have problems with parking spot.

Short but pretty. Lots of small animals (lizards, birds, snails). The second half was closed due to floods washing out the bridge and swimming was not recommended because of flash flooding.

Amazing Hike,❤

Hiked this trail back in Spring 2017. The Mina falls is very trafficked and there were a lot of people. Climate of course was humid and hot. Is a short trail that has a river alongside most of it. Found it easy since many families with children were hiking as well. The waterfall is beautiful, was not able to dip into since i did not have swimming suit but a lot of people were playing in the water. I started hiking in running shoes but once we got there I changed to water sandals which I STRONGLY recommend if you want to walk through the rocks and eventually jump in.

Did this hike with my wife on a mini-vacation from a conference. The rain came down in buckets, but it was still amazing. The waterfall was kicking with all of the rain. Slippery when wet!

Much less crowded than other hikes in the area, likely due to it being somewhat more challenging. Beautiful view overlooking the entire rainforest.

Was expecting to see more flora and animals through the forest, but still very enjoyable hike. We arrived early (~8-9) to avoid tourist traffic!

When hiking El Yunque there you can see Los Picachos, El Yunque Peak, Roca El Yunque Rock, and Mt. Button Tower in a 5.5 mile hike. Park at Palo Colorado where there is a small information/gift shop and bathrooms. Walk up to Baño Grande and see that. You'll see the El Yunque trail to the right and take it all the way up ~2 miles to the Los Picachos trail which is the first trail to your right. It's only .7 miles to Los Picachos and well worth seeing the view. Then go back and take your next right to Roca El Yunque and El Yunque Peak...It is very windy so watch your hat! After El Yunque hike the service road down to Mt. Button which will be your second left, then backtrack to the spur trail to go back down to Palp Colorado.

Excellent slightly uphill trek from Rd 333 up to DRNA Station where you can take Lluberas trail or any of the trails within the Dry Forest
Don't miss the centenary Guayacan tree about 200 mts off

Excelente sendero. Lo mejor es el final. Nos tardamos 38 minutos en bajar y 30 en virar. La cascada la mina es espectacular. Se siente mucha paz.

So worth it. This hike can be hard if you're not use to change in elevation, tons of humidity, climbing, heat, etc. But it's short and if you take it easy I'm pretty confident most can accomplish and enjoy the beautiful waterfall! It gets busy. Swimming in the waterfall is awesome!

Tough trail. I would rate this as a difficult trail rather than moderate. Wear good waterproof hiking boots! You will cross wide streams and walk through lots of deep squishy mud and slippery rocks/roots. Trail is well marked and end of trail is rewarding with river pools to swim in. Bring swimwear and lots of water to stay hydrated! Trail head says it's 1.8mi/1.5hr. Took us about 3.5hr to hike out and back.

It was lovely. On a hot day you can jump in and cool down. Also a great location to take pictures under the waterfall.

Did this hike back on Feb 2016 trail was a little bit wet and slippery. It would be considered easy doable in regular shoes and clothes. There were a few waterfalls which were beautiful but a bit crowded. You can also swim under the La mina waterfall.

I actually got a little winded on this one. Loved it though!!!! The tower is so picturesque. If you are ever visiting PR this trail is a must.
