Located between San Juan and Fajardo, El Yunque makes an ideal day trip.
Considering the dire financial situation of the Forest System, I fully expected the facilities to be antiquated or at least a bit run-down.
Boy, was I wrong! The towering Visitor’s Center was spotless and appeared to be only a few years old.
Throughout the rainforest, well-maintained hiking trails made it a breeze to get around.
To be honest, El Yunque was better cared for than many National Parks in the continental US.
